Just one year ago, on an equally snowy day, Miss Lucy was born.
And six weeks later she came to live with us.
She’s added a layer of love to our house that has transformed the whole family: everyone speaks sweetly to Lucy– “C’mere honey.” “How are you beautiful?” “What can I do for you gorgeous?”– and thus we all talk a little more kindly to each other. She’s a soft hug, a purring companion, a playmate when everyone else is gone or busy.
Fully grown now, she’s elegant, intelligent and yes, shockingly conceited. Her birthday was spent doing all her favorite things: eating tuna from a baby bowl, catching drips from the faucet, sleeping on my bed and supervising Xander’s homework.
Many, many thanks to Bonnie and Blue who brought sweet Lucybelle Pirate into our lives.
