Left for Dead

She spent three weeks in the trunk of our car. Peak summer temperatures, no light, no water. Left for dead. And this weekend, after dropping off those donations that were haphazardly piled on top of her, we discovered her body. Alive. Still beautiful.

And we are left scratching our heads and asking, "My, but isn't the spirit of life resilient?"
