It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

When a big white dog turns up unexpectedly in their front yard, Kix and Emilia immediately want to adopt him. They name the dog Sam, and even though their parents say they can't take him in, it isn't long before Sam becomes a part of the family. But when Sam's original owner comes looking for him, Kix realizes that deciding where Sam belongs is anything but simple.

Wow, that would be a hard thing to go through. Now I want to know who ends up with the dog.
