Today, I had to get out of the office, I just couldn't breathe it felt like...so I set out to find a park nearby. I don't know Lima all that well, so I figured today I'd just scout locations, and hopefully find a location that felt like "me"...I got lucky and found Schoonover Park where I found a shady spot to sit, and a picturesque scene that I could stare at indefinitely.
While sitting there contemplating my future.....and the immediate disarray of my mind today, I heard footsteps approach me, I wasn't in "the best" part of town, so I stiffened and turned cautiously to see who was about to be upon me, to find this:
She climbed in my lap, and purred as I stroked her, and then she climbed off me, purred some more and sat next to me. She started out at the water the same as I did, perhaps she too had a lot on her mind. She just stayed next to me until it was time for me to go back to work, her side against my side.
The water and view was nice, but the company from a furry stranger who I suspected knew I needed a friend....well, it was a blessing I hadn't expected today.
So just wanted to send a special thank you out to my little friend, who lifted my spirits just by sitting quietly by me when I needed it most.
