Worth the Wait


The young woman sat by the window and waited; the neighbors said she waited in vain. Her kitty Jezebel had been missing for six weeks, and friends said she'd never see it again. Then one day a handsome young man rang her doorbell, in the carrier at his feet was none other than her Jezebel. Delighted, she invited him for coffee, but this was not the end of the story. It was instead the beginning of a love affair that would last for the rest of her life .

  1. Sometimes the most amazing things happen when we are looking for one thing and find more than we asked or hoped or imagined.

  2. I think maybe Jezebel had her paw in the plan. Once she got to know her rescuer she knew what to do. Two humans with good hearts can be better than one. Cute story. Thanks for sharing with In Other Words.

    1. Thanks, you are right! It was a little Valentine story. More than one couple have been brought together by their pets!
