|Dear Diary, (October 1999)|
where to start? October took
off running and we never really caught our breath. Highlights: being best
woman at my baby sister's wedding
(is anyone going to send me pictures so I can put them on the web?)
adoration of my young cousins and time with my nieces
along a Michigan lake amidst fall color so glorious it brought tears (thanks
little brother, for the van and camper loan)
the challenge of new responsibilities
the birth of baby Isabel.
Life often mixes pleasure with pain, birth with death. Missi and Angel died in October leaving me with great memories and a profound sense of loss. I was blessed to know them. The pony boys are thriving. Peek is in a new foster home in Carmel Valley training to pull a cart. And lucky Tony was adopted by a terrific local vet.
