Unconditional Love ???

We have heard of "Unconditional Love"
from out pets.....well my Mika
is living proof !!! Oh what have I done...
my thoughts were... To keep her Little feet dry...
Mika humored me by walking around
house wondering what her Mommy did
to her.....I didn't think dogs I mean
my little girl could put on a sad face...
as you can tell SHE HAS A SAD FACE....
...I am happy to say
I returned the shoes today !!!!!!
I'm sorry Mika...
Mommy loves you very much ...
I just lost my mind for a moment !!!

Life has so many changes...some good some bad.....but the loss of my Mom for me was life changing... I miss her everyday.....I wish I could say my Mom had a easy life....My father died at the age of 37 and my Mom had to raise 3 children on her own.....and that was no easy Mom was a very strong willed woman and we did butt heads on many occasions through out my life.....but bottom line she was my Mom and I loved her with all my Mom and I had some great talks over a nice cup of tea over the years.....shared a few secrets here and there.....I am very proud to say a lot of who I am today is because of my Mom......Mom, I miss you and my heart feels your loss everyday.
Mom and her very loved great grandchildren

I miss you Mom !!!!

Me my Mom and my beautiful girls....

A chapter of my life is now closed...the loss of my Mom has left me with memories that will make me laugh and cry....but a piece of my heart will feel her loss forever!!!!
"I love you Mom"
Thank You for letting me share a little bit of my life today with you.

that store).....and I really like my new is very comfy too !!!!!!
I sit in the front window during the day and let my Mom and Dad know
when someone is passing by or coming to the front door....I kinda get excited
and bark....I'm glad I have something comfy to sit on....
My Mom is really nice...she made this spot for me right in the front
window..she had some really cute stuff here but she moved it just for me...
I really love my Mom.....(and I know she really loves me too)
I think I hear someone coming...just a second and let me look.....
