We Love Lucy

This has been a very busy and frightening week.  The terrorist attacks in Brussels reminded us once again how vulnerable we are to evil people who are willing to die in order to murder innocents if that will generate fear in the hearts and souls of everyone.  Just when we thought politics couldn't get much more disgusting, the candidates proved us wrong by attacking the previously sacrosanct family members of opponents.  And here in North Carolina our General Assembly has given its collective blessing to those who would discriminate against LGBT individuals.

I could write multiple posts on those things, but this is Friday.  And my Friday posts are set aside for dogs and the genuine love and comfort we give and receive from them.

What could be sweeter than a dog sleeping among her pillows?

Actually, it was even sweeter back when Ellie was among us.
We often saw two dogs sleeping in one bed.
When the bed is big...

or when the bed is smaller

While we will always miss our dear Ellie, we do love our Lucy.  She is still young at heart and just as silly as ever.  She brings great joy to our lives.

If you are celebrating Easter, I hope you have a wonderful weekend.  If you are not celebrating Easter, I still hope you have a wonderful weekend.  And I hope that Spring will come soon to everyone.

Today's quote is from a great American poet, Edna Dean Proctor:

I think of the garden after the rain;
And hope to my heart comes singing,
'At morn the cherry-blooms will be white,
And the Easter bells be ringing!'

Happy Easter to you and those Golden girls. So pleased Lucy brings you both much joy.

These are sad confusing days but life does go on.
We fly to New York this week with out Grandchildren. Yes, I have concerns but believe in my heart that life is mapped out.

It was so sweet to see Ellie and Lucy again as snooze buddies. I miss those shots, they always made me smile. If only those humans who think differently could be so close and sharing. Life could be so simple if we let it.

What made you think to get her a pillow? It was obviously a hit.

Thanks for your comments, everyone.

Cheryl - Hope you have a safe journey and enjoy your visit.

Mary Lee - The bee pillow was sent to us along with other gifts from a WI friend. For some reason, Lucy seemed determined that the pillow was for her. So we gave it to her. She enjoyed it so much we bought two others with discounts from LL Bean.
