Song-ography: "One"

One is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do.”
-Three Dog Night
As a long-haul trucker, Bill sees a lot of life, 
all raw and unfiltered. Much of it can be difficult.
He says you never get used to it, though  
you do the best you can to deal with it. 
You use your head, but you can still 
follow your heart…which is what he did.

Bill had stopped at a “rest stop” on I-20,
near Ruston, Louisiana. There he met this 
beautiful, very alone and pregnant stray cat.
She was obviously hungry, but fearful of people.
She would not let anyone close enough to touch her.

Undeterred & determined to offer her a meal,

Bill went through his own food supply.

Finding a tin of skinless sardines, he

approached her carefully with the fish.
For one meal, one lonely, hungry and 
expectant cat was fed by one lonely trucker
who cared enough to reach out to her.
One can make a difference, even a small one…
because it matters.

  1. I am not familiar with this meme, but may have to look into it. With the prompt given I would have come up with Three Dog Night's song. I love the group! I love the song! Thanks for stopping by this morning. We would love to have you join us on the dance floor next week, if you can. 😉 Have a tunetastic day!


  2. 😦 Awwww poor mama cat!

    Thank you lovely Bill for your kind kind heart. Hope there are many more of you to help this sweetheart and her soon to be born babies. It's very very sad.

    Take care


  3. Yes, Queenie, Bill is one-of-a-kind. We have been best friends for almost 37 years (married almost 33). We have done a lot of rescues over the years. He wished he could have done more here, but he did what he could. If everyone did, we would all benefit.


  4. Well, you did it again … tears. This is beautiful and sad and I wonder if there are others out there who will do for her and her babies. Breaks my heart … but thank you Bill for her moment of hope. Oh, I hate how this makes me feel about her …

  5. One CAN make a difference…and you just illustrated it in the most marvelous of ways. You've got a true keeper in that husband of yours :). Thanks for sharing at Song-ography.


  6. Absolutely, bless his heart and hopefully she and the little ones will be okay. This was a tear maker for me! Happy dear heart-filled tears of joy, still streaming down my face! 🙂


  7. Thank you Bill. We pray that others helped this pregnant mom and that she and her kittens, when born, all survive and find good homes. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo


  8. Beautiful! Got to love a strong man with a big, gentle heart 🙂 BTW – you have some beautiful pets (shown in your sidebar). Love any cat and your dog is beautiful, almost looks like a Border Collie, which I love.
