Sunday Blessings

Just sitting here in the back yard with Bogie, Ducky, and Hubby, enjoying the fresh air and sunshine of a perfect Mother’s Day. πŸŒΌπŸŒ·πŸ’

Bogie is feeling more secure about his status in our lives, so he’s settling down faster in his crate at bedtime and when we have to leave the house without him.

Happiness is a Warm Puppy

Ducky is getting used to Bogie’s puppy energy. He wants to play almost constantly. It’s good for her…she’s starting to lose some of the weight she gained since the pandemic-induced lockdowns last year. And her waistline is becoming visible again.

Hi Mom!

And, while it’s a tough journey some days, hubby is dealing with the ups and downs of his dementia. And I do my best to take every day one moment at a time. Sometimes I’m successful at it, sometimes not so much. But having Ducky and Bogie around makes us both smile and laugh when we need it the most.

Playtime at the zoo.

All in all, life is good. Being grateful for what we have instead of resentful over what we don’t have helps keep the blues away. And having a community of faith like we have at St. Andrews Presbyterian a few miles from home helps us both keep things in perspective.

    I think Bogie is exactly what you and your family needed. I’m so glad Ducky is learning to enjoy him! I know getting Luke was the best thing for our two girls; he made them young again! β™₯

      Slowly. And sometimes 1 step back for every 2 forward. And all on Ducky’s terms. It’ll happen eventually. Meanwhile it’s a matter of giving her as much individual attention as I can and then some. These first few months are a challenge with Bogie’s teething. Even with a slew of chew toys laying around, he is a persistent little character. And those puppy teeth hurt sometimes. But we love him dearly. And Ducky’s coming around. 😍😍😍

    Happy Mother’s Day! And, love the updates. Except for the waistline, Lucy & Ducky still seem a lot a like (we think she’s got some Greyhound in her, so she’s thin as can be!).

    And, as always, all the best to hubby as well!
