A bittersweet day

Today would have been Dave's mom's 91st birthday.  We were so happy to be in Penticton last year to celebrate her 90th and we all expected that she would celebrate lots more birthdays.  Little did we know that in a little over a month she would be gone.

Four years ago we went to Davenloch Collies to pick up Duffy, and it was an extra special day, as it was Mom's birthday too! It's still a very special day, but this year it's tinged with sadness.

This doesn't take away from the joy and love that I feel today and everyday when I look at our Duffy.  He has changed my life in extraordinary ways and he continues to change my life. I might just write a post about that this long weekend.

                                             Happy Birthday Mom-I love you. XOXO

We never know from one day to the next - the best we can do is truly appreciate the ones we love everyday.

Birthdays and new puppies ~ good memories though and the pain goes away after a while so the happy ones stay.


Yes, they change our lives so very much.
