i’m probably one of the luckiest gals that i have such a tremendous family on both my mom & dad’s sides. this morning i spoke to my mom & the call began with some sad news. the kitten that adopted her, my step-dad & their poodle, pepper was hit by a car. mew started coming around last year when she was just a hungry baby kitten. she must have lost her mom & siblings on the streets of escondido & was drawn in by the love she could feel emanating from my mom & bill’s home. this is no strange occurrence, since other pets & people have also adopted our family over the years & we’ve adopted them back with open arms. the loss of mew makes me think about how lucky i am to have my big loving eclectic family. family is not based on blood, it’s based on the connections we make. even though the loss of this diamondcat is a sad one, it makes me remember how blessed i am to have incredible people in my life, whether it’s family from blood, marriage, friendship or in the four legged kind. i’m one lucky gal.
one part of my big fabulous family.
