It's kind of tough trying to celebrate Mother's Day a few months after your Mother passed away. It's hard enough to celebrate Mother's Day when one of your children is in Africa and the other one is in California. What made Mother's Day a great day despite everything was celebrating with Socrates and Lexi. In a very real sense, they are my kids, too!
Many people may have seen these photos before, but in honor of my Mother's Day, I am displaying them once again. After all, who could resist these two cuties?
Socrates is my golden boy. He is my magical, miraculous dog who transformed my universe the first time I saw him. Socrates was adopted from Mutts4Rescue in Louisiana. An angel called April brought him into my world, and for that gift Tom and I will be forever grateful.
Our little love, Lexi, is a bundle of pure joy. I defy anyone to watch her for more than a minute without falling in love with her. She is funny, smart, sweet, and overflowing with kisses and cuddles. Lexi is from Beaumont, Texas, and we have Cindy and Kate to thank for completing our family so perfectly.
They both love to run and play the day away, but when they get home they're as good as gold. We are well and truly blessed!
