Raggedy Ann was in charge of the meeting.  She explained to the cats how even though the music boxes couldn’t talk, they were concerned about Debbie too.   She said that if they all did a little bit extra for Debbie, maybe she would feel better.

“Tiger, would it be possible for you to not sit up like a dog and beg at the supper table?  Debbie probably doesn’t like you to bother her that way.””Okay, I’ll try not to beg so much.  But then Micah has to promise to turn down his purr box so Debbie doesn’t get her sleep interrupted all the time,” Tiger said.

Micah was just about to meow to the arrangement, when all of a sudden, something flew at the screen door.  Whatever it was, then bounced back onto the front porch!

Who or what was there?  It was the Energizer Bunny!

“Micah,” Raggedy Ann commanded, “stretch out the toes in your left foot.  Jump at the screen door’s lock so we can open the door.”  Raggedy Ann constantly wore a painted-on smile on her face, but she could be bossy if she had to be.

Micah was glad to help, because he was known to be quite an acrobat.  So with the door now unlocked, he leaped up to the door handle and pushed against it.  Energizer Bunny hopped into the living room with one big leap.

“I hear you’re having a problem with your owner?”  he asked.

“We’re worried about Debbie – but she’s not our owner.  She is actually our pet,” answered Tiger.

“Well, word gets around.  I already know she’s slowed down, she isn’t as cheerful and sunny as usual, and she’s not singing lately,”  Energizer Bunny said.

“You know, Debbie is just like me, active and full of life and has energy.  Since she represents me, it’s very important to get her back to how she was!”

So Energizer Bunny was told about what the gang decided to do to help Debbie.  They agreed to talk again soon.  Energizer Bunny then hopped up to the screen door and let himself out.

The conference the household members had just had wore them out.  They tried to stay awake but could not.

Then Debbie came home to find everyone in the same seating arrangement they had had at the meeting.

“What happened here?” she shrieked when she saw everything and everyone out of place.

Next up:   The music and sunshine come back home.

I like to share my hope with others and continue to encourage them - no matter who they are or what they need encouragement for. I write poems, prayers, articles, and stories.
