Happy Mother's Day. Here's a repost from a couple of years ago that still remains so true. My mom is still amazing at 82 and Sunny was renamed Pepper and is a joy to her owner and definitely won the puppy lottery when she was placed in my moms loving care. xo, Patty
I was reminded first hand this year of what a mother should be...
As we watched my father deteriorate over the last few months of his life, we were blessed by the
presence of my mom. She never wavered in her care for my dad. She never wanted credit for how she gave unselfishly. She never lost sight of how her five grown children were hurting. If you tried to tell her she was amazing, she would tell you that she was only doing what anyone would do. I wish that were true...but I know better.
When my dad passed away we knew that this woman who was so used to giving to and caring for someone would get lonely...and bored.
We were trying to think of the perfect gift for her this Mother's Day and (after getting her approval) we think we did.
Isn't she adorable? She has been living with me for the last month while my mom tied up some loose ends and stayed a while with my sister in Texas. It was my job to house break her...(well, almost).
Happy Mother's Day, mom.
Just a few things you should know before you take her home.
She likes privacy to do her business...so if you smell something funny, check the corners of your house.
She likes furry slippers and dirty socks.
She is not shy about telling you when it's time to eat.
She likes napping...(she will fit right in at your house).
She will steal your heart.
She will always have a home at Lemon Lane Cottage, just like you.
