I was standing face-to-whisker with Lily!
There's no 'sill' under that window ~ Lily is literally hanging by her claws! (real good for the Screen)!
This is Lily's usual method of letting me know that she wants to come in the house.
After 12 days with my Beautiful Baby Girl back home, it was time to say good-bye once again. I must confess, I went through several days of profound sadness. It's so hard letting her go so far away and not knowing when I'll see her again! But, I know that she's chosen a good path and I'm very proud of her (as I am of all three of my kids). I'll be here, when she wants to come visit "the farm" and at least now, we can stay in touch through phone calls and e-mail. I do know that she checks my blog frequently, to see what I've been up to...
..."We miss you, Katie! Mom says you're going to make the world a safer place. Thank you!!!"
