On this November 26th, two days before Thanksgiving, we honor Catherine Hubbard. There is a group of animal friends that a special young girl would like us not to forget about. Yes, for those who have been following, today is day 8 of 26 days of kindness.Catherine loved animals, insects, too, She even had business cards for her own shelter. In honor of Catherine, today's post is titled ‘Nature’s Thanksgiving Collage.’
I chose this quote from Gemma Malley because it resonates what I read about this young girl with a beautiful heart. “He said that we belonged together because he was born with a flower and I was born with a butterfly and that flowers and butterflies need each other for survival.” Remember Catherine’s words to the butterfly. “Tell all your friends that I am kind.”
Perform one small act of kindness today in her honor. Here is where Catherine’s dream lives on. +Catherine Violet Hubbard Foundation
