We have all the animals tucked away for the cold, windy, brutal night. There are heated water buckets, bowls and bottles everywhere so all animals have water to drink, no matter how cold it gets. Every bunny has a heated bottle, hay and feed to be warm and comfy. The cats have canned food, dry food and a heated water bowl, with tons of warm soft hay to cuddle up in. The ducks are ducks! Hell, they set in ice cold water all day long like idiots when there are nice warm wood chips in their barn to sit on. Go figure!
Tomorrow, we will finish up everything around here that needs done, so we can take off for Pennsylvania at 4:00 AM on Saturday morning to see my Dad and stepmother for the first time. Rose is a very nice lady and I'm going to be happy to meet her because she has given my Dad a new outlook on life. He was a hermit of sorts after my Mom died in 2001, until he almost died from a bout with pneumonia in the fall of 2007 and ended up in the extended care facility in Huntingdon. He was fine with being in the home, but once he and Rose met and got together, and later married, his life took on new meaning and he has never really been happier. I'm glad and can't wait to meet the woman that gave him back his happiness. I know how he feels, because Vicki has done the very same thing for me after my sour divorce! Actually, I am probably one of the most blessed people in the world since meeting Vicki. I know she was an angel sent by God, because we are connected in a special way I cannot explain. She is actually a part of me and I miss her if we are apart for anything. We both know what each other are thinking and feeling at any given moment of any day, and we haven't been apart for an hour since we got together. Where ever we go, we go together......whatever we feel, we feel together. Whatever we do not have becomes a blessing, for we soon see that our greatest blessings are the things we do no have...for they are not needed and usually cause problems we do not want anyway.
