Little Chick's Birthday Wish

"God has blessed us all with amazing gifts.
With a grateful heart we should nurture them each day." ~Mama Hen
Little Chick loves animals and has a strong desire to rescue them and help them in any way. This year Little Chick's birthday wish is to have all of her friends and family bring a gift for our local animal shelter in lieu of any gifts for herself. She has already been a few times to the shelter to talk to them about her wish and plans to host a lemonade stand to help raise money for the animals, as well. While we were at the shelter the first time Little Chick fell in love with a beautiful cat that had been hit by a car last weekend. The poor kitty has a cast on her entire leg because it had been broken. Little Chick says she wants to visit this cat every day to give it love. Today she climbed into the crate and just soothed the little animal with her soft voice and hugs. Yesterday the shelter asked Little Chick to name the cat and she went home and thought about it. Today when we returned she announced that the cat's name is Whiskers. I love my daughter's beautiful giving heart. This will be a very special birthday this year. Next week she will be 8!

  1. July 19 is our first son's birthday! I hope Little Chick had a wonderful birthday. You are a good mom to teach her about God and to be a good steward of the gifts He has given us, and to help her learn to be gentle and kind to His amazing creatures.
