... a bit of that

Friendship isn’t a big thing – it’s a million little things. (Gratitude 2/150)

My sister, Rentia put on her Face Book status that so would like a kitten. Her husband works long hours and due to her health, she is not able to work…. she is lonely by herself all day.

Now, we all know I am not big on animals, but I have a friend who is, and I thought I would just send her a message and ask if she knew of anyone who needed a home for a kitten. She did.

Lynne replied and said she did know of a kitten and that she was going to take the kitten to a haven, but hadn’t so it must be a sure sign.  🙂 

Lynne is my daughter, Victoria’s best friend, Melissa’s mom. She is giving and loving and passionate about animals. She is kind and fair, and loves my daughter.  Victoria loves visiting Lynne as there are many animals to play with and generally lots of laughter and fun. Lynne is somebody I can talk to without pretense, who laughs and CARES.

Lynne drove tonight from her home, far, far, far out of her way to take a complete stranger, my sister whom she has never met, a kitten. A kitten my sister is so excited about she went out shopping as if she was having a small baby.

Today I am thankful for friends like Lynne who will go out of their way to give to others, when there are people like me who just don’t get the animal thing and give joy to a complete stranger.

Thank you Lynne for caring, thank you for making my sister happy and giving her something to look forward to. Thank you for driving so far out of your way, just because. You are incredibly special and I appreciate deeply what you did. Thank you for loving my kids as your own, for taking time to talk to them, to share a laugh and thank you for loving animals so much that my kids don’t have to go to a petting zoo. 🙂

Dear Lynne – I love and appreciate you. Thank you. xxx
