My Life Scripture

Philippians 4:4-7 (ESV English Standard Version) Holy Bible
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let the reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds through Christ Jesus.

Hello, from Jekyll island, Georgia!

Sunrise on Jekyll Island, Georgia!
One of the Crown Jewels of Georgia!

I am spending this week on Jekyll Island with my sister.  We are sprucing up their Villa at "Villas By The Sea" getting it ready for the coming season!

Today is a very emotional day for me!

I am visiting one of the most beautiful places on earth and I just found out that my darling daughter is planning a birthday day dinner for my 60th birthday!

However, we have had to put our 10 year old Rat Terrier furbaby to sleep this morning.
He had serious health issues that would involve extensive hospital stay, meds, tests, and over all 'stuff'.  He was in pain without much relief in sight. 
Maxwell has lived a full life and has been a joy to me.
I will miss Maxwell.
Goodbye, my little one!

Hi Carolyn!! I so missed seeing you this past weekend in Woodstock, but glad to see that you were visiting one of the most serene places I know of. So sorry to hear about the loss of your pet.

So very sorry for the loss of your Maxwell :(. I do hope that you have a good birthday celebration, though. I'm sure Max will be looking down and would hope that his mommy have a good time even without him. We had to put our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel two years ago due to old age too and it was very tough because he was my "first born". Much love to you!

I am sure that if Maxwell could do it all over again, he would choose you as a family! I know how you feel, I LOVE my animals! We are blessed to have them and in the end, privileged to make the right decision on their behalf. xxx
