Mother's Day is a tough weekend for me, I will confess. Our own Mother passed away, of course, in 2006. Then at Mother's Day weekend 2007, I had to say good-bye to Augie, who literally meant the world to me. Last year, I had to say good-bye suddenly to Bid, who had my heart. Augie and Bid, I miss you both every single day. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of each of them. I've spent a quiet weekend thinking about all this. I am still so fortunate to have three good dogs and wonderful family and friends. So if I am not happy today, then when? That's the mantra in black and white.
Happy Mother's Day to all my adopted moms including to Chloe who presided over a fun brunch yesterday.
