Happy Birthday Little Chick

"Celebrate each birthday with the fervor, love and fun it so deserves." ~Mama Hen
Dear Little Chick,
Your birthday is my favorite day of the year! I waited a lifetime to be blessed with the honor of being your mommy and I cherish every second God has blessed me with you. I love you my beautiful baby girl! You are filled with so much love and compassion and a free spirit. You make every one who meets you laugh and you are always a kind, wonderful, loyal friend. Your empathy and compassion for animals and people in need is a gift and you are always thinking of others before yourself. You are my greatest gift!
Happy Birthday my beautiful baby!
Love,
Mommy

Little Chick's Big Surprise

"The greatest gift in life is to give of yourself." ~Mama Hen 
Little Chick had an early birthday surprise yesterday when we went to visit Whiskers at the animal shelter. I had already brought bows and signs saying: Happy Birthday! You can take Whiskers home now! Little Chick was so surprised! I had told her that we would not be adopting any more animals, but all along I knew this was going to be very special. As she read the sign she looked at me and the kind woman who had been letting us see the animals the past couple of weeks and she was shocked. She said, "Is this true? Is Whiskers really mine?" The shelter woman and other people who were excited for Little Chick had all gathered to sing happy birthday to her. She was beaming! She said, "Mommy pick me up please. Put me in with Whiskers." The two hugged and nuzzled one another. The shelter woman had brought a beautiful purple carrier for Little Chick from her own house. She put a big bow on it. When we got in the car Little Chick could not stop talking to Whiskers. When we arrived home the two just climbed into bed and cuddled. Whiskers will have the cast on her leg for another month or so. She already started getting around and exporling her new home. We are truly blessed with our furry family!

Cat, Splish Splashing & Tooth 9

"Take the time to give of yourself each day.
A giving heart fills the mind with purpose and the soul with beauty." ~Mama Hen
Little Chick started her day with watering her flowers and taking care of her animals. She was excited that all three seeds she had planted have started growing. We then headed to the animal shelter to see Whiskers. We were unable to see Whiskers yesterday because she had been at the Veterinarian getting a new cast put on. Little Chick has been visiting the cat every day to give it love. She was sad when we were not able to see her yesterday. Today Little Chick hopped right into the cage with the cat and immediately Whiskers put her head on Little Chick's leg. After the shelter we spent some time with friends at the splash park. It was over 90 degrees today and very humid. When we came back home Grandma Hen came over and I did some surprise stuff for Little Chick's birthday on Saturday. Then during dinner Little Chick's 9th tooth was very loose and it finally came out. She put it in our traditional mini suitcase for her fairy Oceana Wavey. What a fun day!

Hiking with Great Friends

"There is nothing like a good long hike to clear the mind and fill the soul."
~Mama Hen
Today Little Chick and I had a fantastic hike with our great friends! We started our hike at Trout Brook Valley and then had a snack. We then headed to Devil's Den for another hike around the pond. We saw snapping turtles, caterpillars and took in the vast beauty surrounding us. Gigi was so happy that her "boyfriend" Skipper was on the hike with her. The two cute canines will definitely sleep well tonight. Little Chick's flower she planted in Summer Brownies is starting to grow. So exciting! Last night Little Chick and I met Grandma Hen at the beach for dinner and a swim. It was beautiful! We are soaking up all the fun and beauty summer has to offer!

Little Chick's Birthday Wish

"God has blessed us all with amazing gifts.
With a grateful heart we should nurture them each day." ~Mama Hen
Little Chick loves animals and has a strong desire to rescue them and help them in any way. This year Little Chick's birthday wish is to have all of her friends and family bring a gift for our local animal shelter in lieu of any gifts for herself. She has already been a few times to the shelter to talk to them about her wish and plans to host a lemonade stand to help raise money for the animals, as well. While we were at the shelter the first time Little Chick fell in love with a beautiful cat that had been hit by a car last weekend. The poor kitty has a cast on her entire leg because it had been broken. Little Chick says she wants to visit this cat every day to give it love. Today she climbed into the crate and just soothed the little animal with her soft voice and hugs. Yesterday the shelter asked Little Chick to name the cat and she went home and thought about it. Today when we returned she announced that the cat's name is Whiskers. I love my daughter's beautiful giving heart. This will be a very special birthday this year. Next week she will be 8!
