Let us put by some hour of every day for holy things...

Think on th' eternal home,
The Saviour left for you;
Think on the Lord most holy, come
To dwell with hearts untrue:
So shall ye tread untired His pastoral ways,
And in the darkness sing your carol of high praise.

--from Keble's The Christian Year, Thoughts in Verse

Parting Is Such Sweet Sorrow

I'm both excited and a bit sad to report that one of my girls is taking off for sunnier climes. Yes, my Sleepy New Mom poodle cozy and her puppy have been purchased and are on their way to a new life in California. In case you missed her debut a couple of weeks ago, here she is:

I dedicate her portrait and the following song to all the sleep-deprived new parents out there. Hang in there! After a while you get used to feeling like one of the walking dead. I should know; I'm a veteran mom.

I took a few last photographs of her before packing her in a box and shipping her off; she's truly one-of-a-kind, and she'll have a soft spot in my heart always. 

Time for a last "group hug" or two before breaking up the old gang...

I suppose this blog post is a strong indication that I really do need to get a life. 

Ah, well. I'm easily entertained.

She's leaving home. Bye-bye!
