I went to the mailbox this past week and got a huge blessing.  Without going through the entire shameful and traumatic story, we gave Hula to a weimaraner rescue in June of last year.  The rescue was very kind and accomodating.  It is not natural to give up a family member, not knowing if you will ever find out what becomes of them.

Well, this past week, I got a letter from the family that adopted Hula. To hear that she is loved and loving her new family is an amazing comfort. 
Let it never be in doubt that the Lord takes care of animals.  I believe with my whole heart that He worked out every part of Hula's passage to this family (and there were several people involved). I am so thankful.

State Park

We got the bug to get outdoors
& get up off our duff
and finding a fun place to go
wasn't one bit tough.
 We've got a state park really close
so we hopped into the car
a picnic lunch, a hike, a swing
and high was set the bar.
  Although I look back on our trip
with amounts of great affection...
I wish we hadn't all brought home
a bad sinus infection! (Yuck)

Sleepy Lils

My mini miss is growing up
and growing makes her sleepy.
Saying "bye-bye" to my baby
makes me get all weepy.
Day-by-day I love her more
(I hope one day she knows)
and when I think it hits the roof
her cuteness-level grows.
