Seeing Beauty on a Tragic Day


On this sad day, take a minute to hug those you love and take a look around to find the beauty which exists in our world.  


As you probably know, Sugar is donating one dollar for every post which joins this blog hop today in support of the Pet Area at the Homeless Shelter sponsored by Goose's mom's church.  As you probably know, many homeless people continue to live on the street or in camps because they don't want to part with their animal family members when they go into a shelter.  This Pet area is a pawsome answer to that problem, helping families get one step closer to the stability of a permanent home.    


On days like today, seeing the beauty in the world around us is most important.  


And don't forget to give your furry friends an extra hug tonight.

Love,

-Bart and Ruby
