Little Ruby had a heart of gold.
Her brother, Loren, built a fort up in the rafters of our garage. As with many such forts, the access was a ladder. One day seven year old Ruby and a friend were playing and she climbed up to retrieve her Fischer Price Doctor Kit from the fort. Coming down, hands full, facing out (oops!), she slips! She sees at the base of the ladder… momma cat has snuggled in with her kittens. Ruby throws herself free of said ladder… and breaks her arm! But saves the cats!
Ruby’s cast was purple. Ruby’s heart was golden!
Happy birthday, Munchkin! Love you so very much!
