Lucy seems to be getting happier and more frisky. While I am sure she still misses Ellie (don't we all?) she is more playful and is her old super excited self when my husband takes her for a ride.
I think it helped a great deal that our daughter was here over Christmas. One more person to pet and fawn over her, and that's what Lucy adores. It was hard for our daughter as she had to grieve once more over Ellie's sudden death. The news was bad enough for her in Milwaukee, but being here in the house without Ellie brought more pain. Ellie loved our daughter so much and sat by her side when she was here.
We are delighted that Lucy is so much improved. Whatever the reason we are glad to see her more like her old self.
She looks like the princess she believes herself to be.
As you go about this new year, please continue to send messages to the Deity of your choice for the health of a brave young man awaiting a heart transplant. HERE The son of a fellow blogger, he has not had a good 2013 so please send thoughts that 2014 will bring him a new heart and good health.
Our quote for this week comes from the Buddha. May our elected leaders follow it:
There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.
MAY THIS FIRST WEEKEND OF 2014 BE A GOOD ONE FOR ALL OF YOU. YOUR SLATE IS CLEAN.
