An Ode to My Loving Family and Friends

I love my family
I am so lucky
So many people love me
And make me happy

I love my wonderful mom
Who makes my dad happy
I love my little sweet sister and her husband
I love my middle lovely sister and her children
I love my uncle, aunts, and cousins

We all have a great sense of humor
Our gatherings are full of cheer
We eat and talk and eat some more
When we part, I cry happy tears

I love my caring dad
Though our story is sad
Make me angry and makes me cry
Someone cruel kept us apart, but why?
I’m so glad we’re back together now
Thinking of the past furrows my brow

I love my dear darling husband, my hubby
I can’t believe how much he loves me
I’m nothing special, I’m a mess and often fall apart
Still, he loves me with all his soul and heart
I feel the same about him and I’m so glad we’re together
I believe we’ll love each other always and forever.

My husband and I began rescuing dogs over 20 years ago. They are our furry family and we do everything we can to help fill their lives with love, health, and happiness. We rescue the old, sick, unwanted, damaged, and on death row. Each special soul we save changes us and remains in our hearts long after they’re gone. I am an aspiring indie-author and also create and sell jewelry and metal bookmarks and we have a Go Fund Me campaign (https://www.gofundme.com/tr796d-dog-haven?member=1560512 ) open in hopes of raising money to help pay for their veterinarian expenses.
