Our lives today??

Late night grocery run and I’m only inside for 30 minutes. He was sitting on the bench outside when I went in, and still there when I came back out. Put my groceries in the car, glance over at him and as I drive out, I roll down the window, lean out and ask, “Do…

Spring has sprung…

Well, it’s that time again, and it seems to me that it literally jumped out at us from nowhere!! One minute it’s cold and drippy and miserable and the next…everything is blooming!!
