 Wednesday, Nov 29th

This poor deer got hit from the car that was in front of us coming home .Samantha An I helped it out of the road 😞 Most people probably would just leave her there, but I couldn’t heart 💔it to just leave her there I had to stop an help. Yes, it was dangerous and yes she would probably die anyway cause the bleeding but I just wanted her to get off the road so at least she can have a little hope. She was lucky friendly we got to pet her An talk to her An I nudge her An she got up An ran to the woody area. So it went like I wanted it too. Now I can go to bed tonight knowing she’s at least safe off of the road.


Today, Samantha was in the parade. Shes in ROTC.
She was carrying the right raffle. 
I'm so proud of her.

 
I'm Planning on coming back to blogging, I really miss it.
So I will be posting more. 
I hope everyone is having a good and safe weekend.
