After four weeks where exuberance, dancing and barking dominated most of the learning time and sometimes it felt like we were trying to harness a whirlwind. On Monday night Charlee graduated from her management class. She did it so well the room erupted into applause. Everything she had been taught (when we did not even think she was listening), she accomplished with such skill and grace, I was personally overwhelmed. We just want to love and care for her but if we can also adequately control her, its a real bonus. We will keep working with her.
Well done Charlee! Even the other dogs were AMAZED. (particularly the big ones who were either frightened by her or desired to ‘take her out!’.
A mid-week greeting of love.
Blessings and Grace to all.
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
