Trotting down the driveway to the Doggy box she went down the card list once again. Nopes she said out loud," I didn't forget anyone". Not even the grumpy grey coyotes that lived on the far side of the hayfield. Molly and the clerk chit chatted a few mins. and then he asked her, "Have you got any mail going out of town." "Well yes I do Molly said, "I've got some mail going to Fl. to my good furiends Hobo and Wylie Hudson, and I have some mail going to dear Pocket and River, Angel Foley's sisters". The clerk nodded and said we're calling in extra Avine carries, "Your mail will make it on time Miss Molly".
With a smile on her face once again Molly stepped out of the Canine Post office, thinking what a wonderful day for a sniff through the hayfield. Following her nose through the dead tall grass, Molly let the worries and stress of the holiday preparations slip away. She could tell her bunny neighbors had gone out to eat the night before. Molly smiled, remembering Mom and Dad bunny and their 3 babies from the past summer.
Thinking once again of the fast approaching Christmas Holiday Molly thought back to something her Mother had told her years ago, "Christmas is a time of laying aside your differences with others, and acknowledging we are all the same. Christ Our Savior was born to die for us all. He gave the greatest gift He could give out of love. We owe it to Him, to lay down our differences with others if only during this very special time of the year, in honor of the birth of the Christmas child".
Looking down the hayfield Molly thought she saw two grey coyotes kissing under the mistletoe that grows in the top of the old oak tree. Rubbing her eyes she looked once again, but only saw brown leaves blowing in the winter breeze. With a bemused look on her face Molly said, "Maybe we're not that different after all".
Wishing you Peace and Joy in the middle of the Christmas Crunch
Molly and my Mom
