What's in a name...anyway.

This sweet, sweet bundle of loveliness came to me 8 years ago. She was rescued from a situation I will not go into because I don't want to think about her bad times. Her name had been Barbara and then it was changed to Sara by someone (don't know the details) When she was dropped in my hallway by someone trying desperately to help the situation, her name was by then Sara. After awhile I felt she wasn't a Sara. I liked Lily. So I called her Sara-Lily until she got used to that and then I dropped the Sara and she became Lily. I can do that, I'm her mom now. Recently, someone looked at her and called her Betty White. It killed me, I laughed while trying to hold back the words "Oh.....I love that. Maybe I can call her that now". That's just not right, right? I can't change her name again. She is my Lily, my little flower. But *damn it*, I love the BW name. So.....I'm sending that out for anyone with a little white bundle and a no-name sticker on her. :)
