From the Heart

Louise Gibson

author of Window Wonders

You have heard of “Charley’s Angels”,

But these are quite unique!–

They were born during Hurricane Charley

When the winds were at their peak

They were the start of my WindowWonders

Their appearance was a shock to my eyes.

One by one they came out of our shed-

Their appearance was a disturbing surprise!

I had such mixed emotions-

“Lord, is this really true?

You know my husband doesn’t like cats-

What am I to do?”

The Lord doesn’t make mistakes-

Our future is foreseen

He sent the cats for me to love-

Definitely not to be mean.

“Big Momma” is a disciplinarian,

Who rules her kids with her paw-

But, conversely so, her affection

Has filled my heart with awe!

They truly are a family,

Bonded in loyalty-

Their protection of one another

Is a sight worthy to see.

It took awhile to name them-

Personalities came into play

“Big Momma”, “Ginger”, “Pepper” and “Tinkerbell

Bonded in every way.

“Corky” and “Angel” two black and whites

Live indoors with me-

Their presence is truly heartwarming-

Their antics a joy to see.

Have you ever had a “furry friend”

That truly communicated with you-

With tender eyes that seemed to say,

“Thank you, I love you, too”?

I don’t look forward to hurricanes-

They fill me with fear and dread-

But “Charley” truly was a blessing

Intended to bring comfort, instead!

    I enjoyed reading this as I posted it. Charley was a dreadful storm and it is wonderful to see a good result of it. We gave my mom a dog after my dad passed away. Max was a dear and faithful companion to her.

    My husband died of lung cancer shortly after the kittens were born. I am so grateful to God for creating my Window Wonders. All of the animals that He brought into my life have been such a comfort to me and have been a constructive way to occupy my days. I have a special place in my heart for homeless creatures…they are so needy!

    What fun that was! I can just visualize those kittens – and their names must be quite appropriate. Thank you.

      God introduced animals into my early life. I can remember putting a litter of kittens in my doll carriage and taking them for a ride when I was a preschooler. We knew nothing about neutering or spaying back then. Cats were always a part of my life.
