Listening to every heart
Lyra...your responses are full of so much strength and hope! Bless you. While he is not a chipmunk, I have a very, very old Squirrel in the back yard, who is turning silver with age...So of course, he has earned the name Silverback and sets a fine example of what can't be done...by doing it. I have a feeling I won't be able to look at him without thinking of you...
He is quite the feisty little individual...and I have seen him stamp his foot and chase all the young'uns away, and then that very same irasicible character seemingly talks to them, and they run around scampering and end up bringing him treats...
He suns himself on a very well worn cottonwood limb, bleaching out his own fur, I suppose, just to be the different one of the bunch ...
I continue to keep you in my prayers, my dear...and there will be more e-mails to come...
