Holding life by the face

Well I might be a little bit country but this girl is just downright …

 Actually this is just Shannie and I having WAY too much fun at Hobby Lobby over the weekend.  We played… I mean shopped in that store for about 4 hours!  We were getting our supplies for our daisy chandelier. Which, we are now calling the teal swan ;). Shan help me pick all the colors, and the trim that we hot glued onto the shades. Honestly I don’t think I’m going to hang it anywhere right away. I think it's going to make a great prop for a photo shoot. And with different lighting it comes out so unique in shots.

It was a fun project to do together and I hope it will be a great memory for my sweet Granddaughter. 
As I was looking through shots I had taken of her this weekend I saw a glimpse of this young lady she is about to become.  Although she is still all little girl….when I see pictures like theses I pray to some degree she will always be just that, and that she will always find joy, wonder, and delight in the world that surrounds her. 

 Well with all the fun we had this weekend we did have a bit of a bummer Saturday night. Glory got me up about every hour wanting to go out because she was not feeling well.  She has never done anything like that so I was immediately concerned. Then Sunday morning she wouldn’t eat, which really had me worried.  But she was drinking so I felt we could wait it out a day. My vet is very close and open 24 hrs.  But thankfully she ate for me by Sunday evening and although she is not 100% yet she is better and we both got a much better night sleep last night.  So please say a prayer for Glory Peeps. She is such a sweet dog…and although she is technically still a foster.  We have really stopped trying to place her. She has just been through too much and to move her after being here for so long would just be cruel at her age. And well, we just love her.

Hold life by the face….and say, yes, I will take you, and yes, I will love you again. ~Ellen Bass

    1. Oh how blessed are you with 3 little princesses! Thank you for your kind thoughts for Glory. I'm giving her till tomorrow and if she isn't better it's off to the vet we go. She still just is right. :(

  2. I love the daisy chandelier! You have such a gift! Shannie is so beautiful, just like her grandma. I will pray that Glory feels better soon.
