Puppies Behind Bars! I’ve donated to their program several times in lieu of family gifts because my parents love dogs and the military (PBB specifically trains for veterans).
Love hearing this, Elizabeth! Thank you for your kind donations. :)
I like this message. But with the photo that accompanies the “4 Things of Beauty” I think it should be “5 Things of Beauty”—the clay figure in the photo is so precious.
Ah, thank you LuAnn – I’ll pass along to the artist, Bee. ;)

I was having a horrible day, feeling the heft of the bad days that come with borderline personality and mood swings. I was seething at the world and myself and then I read about dying in Amsterdam with no next of kin and somehow, my heart and my eyes well up.
Thank you Erin, Your words continue to be a beacon of hope to me, time and again.
Love to you, Fathima — I wish you moments of wellness this weekend. Thank you for your kind note!
