That is just one of the truths that I have learned over the years. Sometimes life is hard. But I have also learned the incredible truth that God is good. It doesn't always FEEL good, however!!!
We have been walking through a difficult few weeks. (Hence the blogging absence - Well, that and the fact that our internet provider informed us they can no longer provide service for us unless a couple of large trees come down on the property down the road. This probably would have happened in the storm that hit our town Friday had we been located a mile North of where we are).
But we are coming through on the other side. Through it all, Sophie has been a source of laughter and licks. (Laughter ALWAYS appreciated; licks not so much!!) She has decided she is a hammock dog. It took a bit for her to get the hang of it, but once she did, she was hooked!!
She let K know how much she appreciated helping her transition from 'non-hammock' dog to 'hammock dog'. Oh yeah, can't you just feel the love?
Sophie is also busy keeping watch over Sumo, who is almost aging before our eyes. We've spent more time just loving on him; brushing him and taking him on an occasional walk up the road. (Still one of the highlights of his life).
It's corn season in more ways than one. I am looking forward to my first sweet corn of the season, as I was unable to eat any last year due to the absence of my front tooth. I can't wait for my first bite!!! It is also nearing the beginning of 'detasseling' season. If you are not from Iowa (or another state that grows corn), detasseling is the thrilling work of walking up rows of corn and pulling the tassels off the top of the stalks. Yep. It's not real exciting, but it pays well, and for A that is important as he has not been able to land a summer job. Will keep him busy for the next 3-4 weeks.
Well, gotta run. Busy day.
Until Next Time...
