My little guy looks for shadows everywhere, and is particularly fond of his own. He gets nearly irate when it can’t be found sometimes. Of course, he has yet to experience the darker side of shadows.
Anyway, this got me thinking why it is that shadows bring fear, and I think it’s because our eyes don’t see as well in the dark and as a species, we like to see what’s coming. I don’t know what’s coming at you, but I know you’re more than enough for the challenge.
Great pictures, wonderful sentiment. Give the VBD some muzzle kisses for me, please?
“Me, and my shaaaadow, strollin down the a-ven-ue, just me, [tap, tap, ta-tap] and my shaaaaadow not a soul to tell my troubles to. And when it’s twelve o’clock, we climb the stair, we never knock ’cause nobody’s there, just me [tap, tap, ta-tap] and my shaaaadow, all alone and feelin’ blue!”
Oh Susie dear, I hope you’re not feeling blue! Just so’s you know–you’re never alone! How are you doing today? Hugs and love!!!
Sweet Pea, you are a very good typer, and I completely understand what you wrote. Thank you for that lovely message 🙂
karen, believe it or not, I didn’t connect the two before you did 🙂 But, yea, it works, right?
jim, I think more evil lurks in the heart of the VBD. Still hoping to get my shins officially diagnosed. I’ll let you know 😉
august, that is an excellent idea. He’s been mooching here long enough!
traci, hi, sweetie. Was thinking of you over the weekend.
kranki, thank you, I flipped the little sucker. He didn’t mind. He said, “Do anything you want, just don’t crush my head.”
lilsis, you’re welcome to it. I changed it to public. I had to get releases from the dog and the ‘hog.
ern, mine, too. And it reminds me of the hymn, “Great is Thy Faithfulness.”
lynn, there is. I hope you see it soon. There is.
peaches, thank you, my friend, thinking of you, too.
amy, thank you; I was thinking of you over the weekend, too; actually thinking of the lady in the wheelchair, from your “set,” and laughing. Thank you.
MoDis, xoxoxo backatcha 🙂
sharkey, thanks, and when I look at the BIG picture, I already do have more light than shadows. Gotta keep seeing big.
ssnick, I’m glad it had meaning for you. Hope you’re doing OK.
Princess, that is so sweet. You make me feel special. Any more special and I’d need a helmet. I love you, too.
william, thanks. Through a series of miscommunications and poor scheduling, I have no results to speak of, and the New Rollogist is out of town until next week. I am assuming that no news is good news, because no news is what I have, for now.
nilbo, aw, I like that. Not only only hope. But hope.
eclectic, only for you, would I kiss a bad dog that I don’t like very much.
effie, I love it when you sing to me 🙂
bucky, my hedgehog is thoroughly buffed at the moment, but I will let you know when a fresh polishing is needed 🙂
Thank you, she 🙂 And you know, I may not be able to make a sound theological argument for this, but I do believe God’s ears perk up just a bit more when little ones pray. Please tell your nieces that you told me this, and that I thank them with my whole heart, and that I know their prayers will be answered.
