Much has already been written about these twenty new angels. So I'll just add this photo in their honor.
Despite the sadness in our hearts, we go on. We give extra smiles, hugs, and kisses to those we love. And receive the same from those who love us. We say I love you more often, reaffirming we're all still here. Reaffirming love does still exist.
It's the Christmas season for many of us. And for all of us, the new year of 2013 is just around the corner - a time for new beginnings.
As I've written this, the weather here has changed from drizzly gray to sunshine. I'll take that as a cue that it's time for me to perk up.
So I want to share a couple of photos of Shiner, the clown. He never fails to make me smile:
This is typical. He LOVES to have his tummy rubbed. I hope you can click on this photo and see it larger. He's half grinning. Please pardon other dog's nose - where one goes, so does the other.
Again, I hope you can make this larger. Can you see him looking up and grinning. He posed.
I'll see you Friday with an irreverent Top Ten. If I don't chicken out and change it before then.
