A Personal Pause or Maybe Paws?
I had planned to post the next photo of Glorious Spring's progress today, but I hope you'll forgive my taking a brief pause in this blog about cross stitch designs to pay tribute to two of my biggest and best inspirations.
My first design, Northern Nights, featured two large dogs howling at the winter moon. They represented our two Anatolian Shepherd boys, Zach and his son, Jubal.
Before I finished stitching the model of Northen Nights last December, Zach died making the piece even more meaningful to Terry and I.
Today, Jubal died. We are so thankful to the Lord for the years we had with both of these great sweet protectors and while neither will ever be forgotten, a certain sampler has become extra special to us.
We hope someday in Glory to once again throw balls for two big golden balls of love -
