Explore Three Dogs in a Garden

I'm sending you over to Three Dogs in a Garden to read a short piece I wrote.

After you have checked that out, spend some time exploring other posts on Jennifer's blog. She's an artist / designer and a gardener, and you will be wowed by her photos and the choice of design elements that she explores.

Many of you already know her -- she has a well deserved wide following. But if this is your first visit to her site, you are in for a treat as you wander through her beautiful posts.

Thanks for clicking over to read today's post on her blog.
And thanks, Jennifer, for hosting my story!

  6. I really love your story. I left a comment on Jennifer's site, as well. I love how touching but unsappy it was. Your husband was probably laughing the whole time. :o)

  10. Your story was very touching, Laurrie. I could feel the shock that you were in, the grief, and the time shift of every moment seeming to last forever. The ending was a surprise - but that's how it is when we're grieving - we need a bit of comic relief.

  11. Laurrie I read your story and didn't know before then how young your boys were. That must have been very hard.

    Just like horses to throw a monkey wrench into things. ;) In fact I think horses are more closely related to monkeys than not.
