As you know, my mom turned
the pretty red roses that my dad gave her this morning
or the catnip that my kitty brothers, Henry and Buster, gave her
or the hand-knitted scarf that her soon-to-be mother-in-law, Andrena, gave her
because my gift didn't come from a flower shop, a cat food store, or from yarn because I can't shop or knit BUT I can give her one thing that comes from the paw.....a big old coon hound hug!
So, Lord, if you are listening, please make my mom love my gift as much as the other ones and if you do this one tiny thing for me I pawmise to keep my paws off her slippers, shoes, and hats forever and ever Amen.
