Family Faces

I spent the greater part of the weekend getting to know a new family member. Her name is Tiger Lily -- the new little sister to our first Westie, Liberty Belle.

Liberty spent the first two hours pretending the new puppy wasn't there.

Lily spent the first two hours doing a meerkat imitation, popping up every chance she got to get a glimpse of the great big world to which she was suddenly exposed.

I'd forgotten how much care a new puppy took, so I got extremely little done that I'd planned to do. That's okay. It gave me a chance to enjoy a rainy day yesterday, totally guilt-free. Smile.

And how are your family faces today? I hadn't seen this quotation before, but really liked it. Family is so very important to me, as I'm sure it is to you. Hope you can use today's quotation.

On another note, thanks so much to those of you who've left such kind comments the past week. That's more encouraging than you know.

Blessings,
Melanie

Loved the comparison of the new puppy to a meerkat, too funny. I wish you luck with her. Our new puppy is now 9 months old and basically over the puppy stage, thank goodness!! Thank you for all your beautiful artwork and quotes, I love them.
