Lucy always manages the first good look at anything.
Ellie approaches more tentatively but is quite interested.
Once the beds are inside, the girls closely examine each of them.
Lucy tries one out.
At the end of the day, in the waning sunlight they once again are sharing the same bed. Ellie is partially off the bed so that Lucy can be more comfortable using Ellie for her pillow.
It's going to be very difficult, but this weekend I am going to try to be more like our dogs. I will be grateful for any attention I receive. I will not worry about what tomorrow might bring but will find joy in living today. I will appreciate whatever food I have. I will give unconditional love to those around me.
Why should that be difficult? Because my mind is filled with anger at those who would try to make themselves newsworthy at the expense of so many others. Because I am angry at those who are so intolerant of other people. Because my mind is filled with memories of that day nine years ago. And frightened at how that day brought so much change for our country and our people. That day changed us beyond our wildest imagination and altered the course of history. It won't be easy, but for this weekend I will try to keep all those disturbing thoughts from my mind. I hope you can as well.
HAVE A SAFE AND WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE!
