Oh, anyone who has ever been hurt must ache for Victoria as they read this piece. And anyone who has watched the graceful leaps of dolphins or watched them swim playfully through the water in the wake of boats, can surely agree that God can use them to show His special care and love to a hurting woman on her birthday of all days. I love the way Mimi does that great leap of joy at the end, just enjoying life with the 'Happy Birthday' wish to Victoria from God ... what a concept!!! An outstanding entry.

So beautifully written and deeply felt. Congratulations and well done!
This brought tears to my eyes. How beautiflly written, how touching. Your story has touched me deeply, and reminded me even through the roughest of times, in ways we least expect, God shows His love toward us.
Thank you.

Exceptional and creative read - Lewis-esque in nature; your use of analogy and allegory is quiet outstanding.
Val, this is outstanding. I absolutely love every line. Telling the story from the perspective of the dolphin was very creative. I love the part about her wanting to cry when she remembered what happened to her master when he became a "two-leg." Lovely. God has certainly ministered to me through creation many times, and I adore His animals. Thanks for a wonderful read and message!
