FUTURE FOCUS

This week-end has been spent finishing past items and now focusing on the future.

Yesterday my hubby and MIL made a return trip to Cleveland where she lived before moving to Illinois in April. The purpose was to visit my FIL's grave. His stone that they designed was put into place and it was important to make the trip for the peace of mind in putting things to rest. I know the day sucked for both of them as it is now approaching the 1 year anniversary of the cancer diagnosis and the subsequent 5 weeks of hell watching my FIL die. That is now behind us and it is time to focus ahead.

Today I am taking my MIL to a dog rescue. She is very lonely living alone and wants a companion. I tried to give her one of my 3 dogs but they were all homesick for us. So today -we will go see if there is a furry friend for her. Hopefully I will update this later today with a photo. I want to make this as fun and exciting for her as I can.

The sun is shining and I feel someone is smiling down on us.

Dear Waddler,

I'm sorry to hear about your MIL's loneliness but happy to hear that one less rescue dog will continue to be lonely.....That is a really wonderful thing to do!

Have you been to www.petfinder.com? My schnauzer girls came from there.

Best wishes for the right companion animal to be located for MIL!

I wish my mother would consider putting up a fence in her backyard so that she could have a dog again.

The trip to Cleveland is important and good for your hubby to make the trek. The symbols are critical.

Good for you.
