The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree:

The presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.

Burton Hillis

She had been living in a small apartment

The day Hurricane Katrina came to town

Her best friend was truly precious to her

How she loved having the little guy around

But when the building was evacuated

Her Precious was not allowed to go

Now she worried and fretted about him

How she missed her little Precious so

But thankfully her tiny friend was now safe

Hed been taken to our camp in Mississippi

And what a grand Holiday reunion this was

Which filled both her and this dog with glee

When this elderly woman was asked how she felt

She responded, Ive got everything I need now.

And this truly marvelous Holiday pet/human reunion

Makes even my Christmas much more precious somehow

2005, Ed Kostro

I must remember to read your poems when I don't need my mascara to remain on my eyes, Ed. I stopped in for just a couple reads before heading out the door for work, I always find a bit of inspiration for my day here, and today is no exception. First I read George Carroll then this. What a wonderful way to feel the spirit of the season and carry it through my day. Nice choice of music. I have been saving that very song for whatever Christmas poem I finally do write.
Take care,

An animal certainly can leave an indelible mark on ones heart.
