“The most valuable possession you can own is an open heart.
The most powerful weapon you can be is an instrument of peace.”
~ Carlos Santana
Lily’s nickname is Baby Ginsu, given by who else? Auntie Crystal Heis. Lily appeared on my porch late at night, two tiny eyes glowing in the headlights. She was just 4 months old. My beloved Sadie was nearing the end of her 17 years. Lily made sure I wasn’t without unconditional love, albeit a vastly different kind of love than her canine counterpart. Sometimes when I need that affection the most she rises to the occasion. That is, when she’s not living up to her nickname by ripping wallpaper off the wall, her current hobby.
