Good Morning Good News !!!! September 13, 2014

I really would like to say THANK YOU GOD !!!!   What a great day yesterday was !!!!   I've always believed in miracles .... or I should say I've relied on miracles ... without one miracle after another, Rikki's Refuge never would have been and could not continue to be .....   From the day I found the property and envisioned a sanctuary growing there .... to the day a donor stepped up and said, "I'll buy it for you." ....

.... to the day I sat on the back porch crying, no money, no more cat litter, 200 cats a poopin' ... and I looked up and said, "Come on God, you gotta do somethin' ... you got me into this mess ... you've got to get some cat litter" ... and the phone rang ... and the lady on the other end said, "Do you use cat litter?  Could you use 96,000 pounds?"  And I said, "96,000 pounds?  Do you have any idea how much that is?"  And she said, "Yes a full railroad car, can you come and get it."  One pick up truck load at a time ...  mmm hmmmm we did ....  Singing thank you God all the way home, trip after trip.   

And everyday when people are so kind to us, kind enough to buy food, kind enough to donate supplies, kind enough to give us their hard earned money, kind enough to vote for us in contests that are yet another miracle come true !!!!
