Here is my wedding sampler. I am nearly done. I feel a very urgent need to get it done. you see, Thomas is failing quickly. He spent a few days in the hospital and came home Monday. He is down to 111 pounds, can no longer walk or hold himself upright. He can only whisper when he speaks and has no use of his left arm. He told Ma and the Chaplin today that he is ready to go home and see Jesus. You know, it takes a lot of courage to fight an illness but it takes a special courage and strength to know when to say "I no longer wish to fight, I am ready for my Homegoing." Please keep them in your prayers.
Meet Flash! he is a 3 month old bassett pup that lives next door! This boy is a character and a half! He is full of himself and loves to aggrevate Katie! I just love his deep bassett bark and he is such a cuddly little sweetheart!
Doesn't Katie look comfy? This was her today taking her mid morning nap! Something funny happened on our evening walk today! Jack decided we should take a shortcut home through the alley! BIG mistake. There was a duck in someones back yard. I thought it was a statue at first until it walked and quacked. She made a beeline for Katie and gave her a peck on the head! I about rolled on the ground laughing! The look on Katie's face was priceless and there was Jack trying to stay between the two of them. That duck followed us to the end of the alley trying her best to get another shot at that intruder! Katie kept wanting to stop, Jack kept telling her to get a move on and I was laughing until I cried! That duck stood there and stared at us until she was certain she had defended her turf and she waddled back to her yard! So that is our day today!
