and then....sun

after a long grey day
the sun slipped
below the clouds as she went to wake up the rest of the world
and gave us a smile before she went on her way.
it seemed a much longer sunset than usual,
it made the fields a honey gold and long shadows across the grass
and so
my Bella & I sat together
and let it soak in
the thankful heart
...will find, in every hour,
some heavenly blessings
Henry Ward Beecher

My goodness, Bella sure is a beauty!
Roxy want's to Play.
Roxy says,"boy oh boy, Bella sure has a lot of space to run"
When I told her about Bella's pool, she says she may like to try it.(giggle)
She asked, "is it much like a bath??"
I'm so glad I got to see your Bella.

Sunny Smiles,

What gorgeous photos, Christe". Bella looks so sweet. I never knew that you had a dog. Is she a golden retriever? I don't have a dog, but if I did decide to get one, this would be my choice too. They are so sweet. Thanks for showing her too.
Love to you
