Keys in Her Hand

Charli Mills challenged us to OPEN DOORS this week. Join in the opportunity to try your hand at Flash Fiction by FOLLOWING her to the Carrot Ranch

She knew she had to leave a marriage that most likely should have never taken place. Doors were opening all the time. On their honeymoon when he raped her, that was the first door. But she was just too shocked and confused. Their first wedding anniversary when he told her what a piece of shit she was, was another open door. But the sweet apology closed the door because she believed she was worthless anyway.

7 more years of verbal, mental, and emotional abuse opened the door to counseling. Which lead to opening the door to the lawyer’s office.

International Cat Day 2021

Ah yes, a home ruled by cats!  We (my brother, sister, and I) are honored to live in such a palace! Over the years we have had many a feline grace this space and currently, there are two such joys…  We love them dearly, do their bidding, and consider ourselves dang lucky! Obviously, it is Cat Day every day here.

You allow us to share

The home in which we live

Companionship you give

Mutual love
