A Whale of a gift.
Since I was a little girl I have loved whales. I didn’t know about spirit animals or the gifts that they bring. I just knew that the orca to me was one of the most beautiful animal that I had ever seen. My family went one year on a trip to sea world when I was about 10 years old. There are two things that I remember about that trip. One, I wanted to be like those people who swam in the water with the orcas. And two, I lost my favorite doll Cookie. I think of Cookie now as a sacred sacrifice for the promise of something better but then I was just heartbroken because I lost my best friend.
