Bless You, Girls

Daily Draw: Animal Totem Tarot ~ 6 of Coins

What gives more freely than a chicken? When the world goes dark hens and a rooster would be my pick for hard working animal companions. They can free range for their food, eggs would be akin to gold, feathers a usable commodity and in their old age meat for the stew pot.

Of course I'd never allow that thought to worry my hens! Just three wee banty ones left now, Sugar Bear plus Little and Little.
As they die of old age they each have a shroud and are buried in a circle around the walnut tree.

The most thoughtful thing Rob has ever given me? When I was in a bad way after seeing my little sister in ICU he never said a word, just took me out to sit with my girls. Listening to them visit and comment among themselves helped me draw strength for much worse to come.
