Yesterday’s controversies of the 2019 marches – The Women’s March and The March for Life are still reverberating today.

As a woman and a Christian, I am pro-choice, which is not to say I favor abortion. My decisions are between God and myself. Not all circumstances are the same. My clarity with decisions rest in His peace.

While some would like us to look away from the chaos and corruption of the world and imagine the world is rosy instead, evil lurks. Yes, there is too much negativity in the world. Yes, we should not add to it. But let our voices not be silenced to the evil that lurks where it wants to stay hidden among the leaves ready to hurt the vulnerable.

Yes, there is beauty in the world. It reigns at the top of the stem.

When you are inside in Michigan and all I can think about are sunny days at my lake – Lake Michigan.

Our country, the United States of America is currently distressed right now with our government’s shutdown from the showdown between the U.S. Administration and the U.S. Congress. With a new set of fresh faces and the indomitable will of the American people, I believe good will conquer evil.

This morning’s photo from my friend, Julie reflects that no matter what America is always on guard protecting its people and shores with or without a wall. We stand to adhere to our democratic principles. We honor our military, government workers, and all who continue to serve and work without pay while our leaders struggle with decency and honor.

last whisper, a tribute

This is a difficult post. My friends Tom and Jeanae have rescued and fostered hundreds of senior pets over the years. Their hearts are bigger than their bodies combined. They help these beloved dogs find new homes, and many times, they help them live possibly their best lives unfortunately near the end of their lives. And with each one that crosses the rainbow bridge, it does not get any easier; but with an abundance of love and dignity they walk them to the gate.

The Last Whisper

I am crying for my dear friends at yet another loss, Sidney. But I assure them, that all the pups they have loved and cared for will be there in perfect health and wagging their whole bodies to greet them one day.

P.S. His full name is actually, “Sidney James aka Chocolate Coconut Bon Bon Bunny aka Practically Perfect Puppy aka Baby Boo.” Who could not love that face and the entire name!!
