APPLE BLOSSOMS IN THE RAIN


When I was a little girl,,,we had apple trees in the back yard,,,,,they produced little green tart apples,,,,good with a little salt sprinkled on them,,,,,but, the special thing about those apple trees was, when they were blooming, they were absolutely beautiful,, and when it rained the fragrance of the blossoms was greatly enhanced. The little country school that I attended was a mile and a half from our home, and often, I cut through the neighboring farmers fields, instead of sticking to the road. When I approached those trees in my back yard, right after a summer shower, the air was redolent with the sweet smell of those wet blossoms. I will never forget that fragrance.

Back when I was 15 years old my German Shepherd got ill and I took him to the vets and the the bill end up going into the thousands to save his life. I didn't want to ask my parents to pay for it but I couldn't afford it also. The owner of animal hospital knew my family from all the past veterinary work we'd had done there in years past. The Vet offered to let me work there after school and on weekends to pay off my debt. I worked very hard as a kennel helper. I worked for these people for about a month when Dr. Douglas (owner) came to me and said I was doing a great job and wanted me to stay, needless to say I accepted.

One of our biggest clients at this animal hospital was a local wolf sanctuary and we handled all their wolves medical/health needs. This is where my work and love for the wolves began. Right from the start when I saw my first wolf I was immediately captivated by his beauty and his impressive and intimidating appearance. He was one of the large alpha males of their many packs, his name was Kenai (pronounced: Key-ni). After working with Kenai through that appointment the whole time I was just amazed that I was getting to see a real live pure wolf and I was holding him while the vet worked on him..... I was literally in awe of his presence. He was so BIG! But he was also so kind and gentle and never gave me any trouble as I held him. He stared at me eye to eye many times and I found that to be almost magical looking into his eyes like that, it's like he was looking into my soul. I'll never forget that moment, was my very first experience working and touching a real Gray Wolf.

I worked for this animal hospital for about 11 years. We saw many of their wolves almost on a weekly basis, I got to know each of the pack members as the weeks, months and years went by. The pack really started to get to know me and trust me more and I developed much more of a relationship with these wolves. At this point I was like Jim Dutcher from the documentary Living with Wolves. I was completely captivated by these animals, the love they have for one another and their devotion to their family is inspiring! Even the life omega wolf meant so much to all the pack members, in the doc it's looks like they don't like the omega but that's simply not true, wolves are often very nice to the omega as well and would kill anyone outsider of their pack for messing with any pack member, unfortunately that's just the way life is in a hierarchy system that wolves employ. My love for wolves grew to a point where I thought about them all the time and wanted to be with as much as possible. The people who run the wolf sanctuary really got to know and like me through working with me at the animal hospital. I asked them if I could volunteer on weekends to work at the sanctuary so I could work and play with them more, they agreed (a lot of wolf sanctuaries need volunteers to help cut their expenses, I was more than happy to do it). When summers rolled around while many kids were doing kid things I spent my summers at the wolf sanctuary doing what I loved most and that was being with them. 

I miss the wolves so much and I think about them all the time, they were such a big part of my life as I was growing up into manhood. I'll never forget what they brought to my life.... peace, joy, happiness is a few words that come to mind. I know all the wolves I knew back then have long since passed away and I haven't kept in touch with the sanctuary in recent years as life just has a way of making you lose touch with people and wolves but I miss them all so much, wish I could go back in time and live that magical moment of my life all over again! There's my story! Awoooooooooooooo! Woof!!

THOSE THREE LITTLE WORDS

 I'll say those three little words to you

In my mind

Though I know you do not want to hear

Those three little words I never revealed

Why I didn't

I know not why

Those three little words

I kept them inside

Such a bumbler as I

Never letting you know

Those three words

They mean so much

Those three words

I should have said them

I didn't say

For that I dread

For being so childish

I wish I were dead,

Though I don't mean that

It’s how I feel

To not show you

How I feel

All I ever needed to do

Is say

I Love You
