Family and Smile Sunday

"In a time of sadness the love of family and friends can help lift ones soul." ~Mama Hen
Thank you so much to all of the kind caring bloggy friends who left such comforting comments about my sweet dog Pudding. I am not going to sugar coat it, we have been having a difficult time dealing with the loss of our beautiful animal. He and Little Chick were very close and I have been trying my best not to think about it. However, that is not so easy. In fact, it is impossible! Last night Little Chick and I picked up my cousin from JFK. She arrived from Spain and it could not have been at a better time. My daughter and I have been looking forward to this visit for over a month now, and having the love and care of family at this time is essential. I have not seen my cousin since I was fifteen (as you can see in the picture above). She is beautiful and we are excited to take a trip up north tomorrow with her for a couple of days. We look forward to sharing our adventures with you. Thank you again for all the care you have shown me at this time. I really appreciate it. Have a good Smile Sunday!

  9. It cuts so much to read the sentence - "I'm not going to sugar coat it" - making this dreadful situation even more painful. Poor Pudding!! Poor Little Chick!! Poor you!!
