The good thing about winter is...
When I looked out the window on Wednesday, this is what I saw. I'm probably as sick of winter as the next person, but there is one thing that I like about it. Dark lipstick.

And one more thing, a favor that I'm asking of you... My little girl Scully (in the picture below) is almost 16 years old and is having some health problems. (The condensed version of this is to ask for prayers for her.) I first noticed that she was losing weight and drinking a lot. Since I just lost my cat Buddy to kidney disease in October, I was acutely aware that Scully was showing the same symptoms. The vet ran blood work and found her kidneys were starting to fail, but worse was her diagnosis of hyper thyroid disease. I started her on medicine then, and took her back this week to see how it's working. It does seem to be helping her thyroid, but she is still losing weight and has been coughing a lot. Follow up blood work shows that something is very wrong with her heart, among other things. She has been with me through relationship break ups, moving across the country twice, and so many other things. I am not even over Buddy's death, and the thought of losing my other girl so soon fills my eyes with tears. If you're a praying kind of person, could you say one for her? And if you could throw in one for my Dad's surgery this coming Wednesday (to remove a malignant tumor) that would be really great, too.
