The sky was growing darker
on a once bright cheery day.
once bright and cheery,
feared the darkness and wrath
but I held her close to me
loving her so much.
Her face lit up
and quickly brightened.
She gave me a kiss and her heart melted into mine.
Where was the once pending storm?
I don’t know or care
then gave the wee one a kiss.
Our love is stronger than any storm . . .
and we drifted off to rest peacefully.

Ah, that moment when all the troubles of the world slip away holding no importance. The storm brewing, the money worries, the health challenges, the what ifs the how will I evers …..mean nothing.
To my right snuggled up close and feeling safe is a doggy that calls me mama who is no longer afraid of the storm or the big dog on my left… all she thinks about is that she is safe and sleeps on with her head snuggled on my right leg. On my left is another dog that calls me auntie, who has also been afraid of my Scrappy until that moment and is snuggled with her head on my lap and sleeping…. And I am feeling safe and peaceful and surrounded by love and fully aware that nothing else in the world matters!

As we face the peak of hurricane season and, as well, with many of us – MYSELF INCLUDED- in the path of Florence right now – A LEVEL 4 AND SOON TO BE 5 -, let’s pray for protection for all!
