Good morning!

It’s Friday. I think we deserve a happy donkey, don’t you?

But first, I just wanted to extend a deep thanks to my paying subscribers. If you're not one already, you can join them for just $6 per month. Especially if you open and read the Respite often, I'd love your support for my ongoing work.

Now, for the donkey.

Meet Dominic. His favorite human is named Sophie Hodgson, and she’d been way for a week. This is what happened when she returned.

“If having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans.” 

—James Herriot

Paying subscribers, it’s Friday! You know the drill: Check your email just before 2pm Eastern for the link to our gathering.
