Thank you dearies for leaving me your speckled multi-hued surprises everyday.
For soft clucking, loud cackling and kamikaze chicken stunts to escape to “the other side”
I love you for relentlessly destroying my moss roses and scratching the mulch out of the flower beds.
I know you think it looks better scattered across the lawn.
Bless your little chicken
livers hearts for stealing the cat food from the poor defenseless cat, she wasn’t hungry anyway.
I understand your impatience to be let out into “the yard” for your evening constitutional. I know it’s important to you to have time to stand under the bunny hutch and scratch yourselves before bedtime.
Thank you my sweets for making me laugh while I wash the dishes and giving me reason to run outside every hour or so to wave my arms and chase you away from my garden with a loving yell. The neighbors must delight in it.
You are worth it all…
