Mom!! quick come here..


"heaven is shining in my room" Patrick, age eleven said to me yesterday morning. The sunrise was amazing and made his room look golden with the glow.
I walked out onto the porch and he was right.. Golden, everywhere we looked. So gorgeous that I had to take a picture.. But it was fleeting, within five minutes it was gone..I have had that thought a lot this weekend.. how fleeting things are. We had quite a time with our little Puck. She is our mini pin who is 12 years old. She hasn't been so well lately, drinking way too much water, losing so much weight and just sleeping.. after our visit to the vet Saturday we were told she was severely diabetic and going blind. We spent the weekend in tears and trying to decide what the best thing for her would be. Our vet also gave us insulin for me to give her as he said he couldn't leave her once she had been diagnosed. We pretty much decided Saturday night that it would be kindest to have her put down. We were all heartbroken. Then, Sunday night came.. Wow! what a difference three insulin shots made. It is like she has a new lease on life!! so we are going to treat her.. it means a very strict diet, a very strict routine and VERY regular exercise.. William and I are taking it on gladly.. it made my heart happy to see her today playing with Toby..so whether she has six months or a year, we will enjoy and love her. .I haven't created too much the last few days, but this picture was so beautiful that I wanted to share it with you all.. Thanks for listening to my ramblings..

Elaine, that picture is absolutely stunning. I read your story about Puck and it made my heart skip. You know I have the feline leukemia kitty and I live each day not knowing if this is his last. I just love him and let the rest be in the powers that be. Rather Puck lives 6 days or 6 months or whatever, she knows she is loved. Love is all we can do, the most powerful of all.
