A serious SUNday sharing -
Saturday morning PF breakfast -
No PF but I liked the colors -
Saturday evening -
Even Lady PF was bowing her head -
We had some seriously special SUNrise and SUNsets a few days ago -
This was incredible as the skEYE appeared to pull a blanket over the hills -
Multiple shots for the BlackBerry was choosing different settings -
My Facebook feed gave a hint at the reason - a long time blog pal - so long I can't begin to recall how long we had 'known' each other - and her Rhodesian Ridgeback Sheba - had been killed in an accident in Niger -I found this one on Esther's blog - one of the comments on the post was quite telling - and hopefully prophetic for Esther -

Aww, Esther, this is such a sweet picture! I think there will be dogs in heaven.
Who would have thought when Esther shared this picture of Baghera - who got his wings on August 01, 2015 that Esther would just a few days later get hers -
She loved not only horses - but dogs - and people - and family - and life - and love - and TRYING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE - which she and her family did -
Esther spent much of her time in Niger - bringing hope and love to those she touched - along with her family's EDEN FOUNDATION -
As I tried to gather material in an attempt to pay Esther a tribute - albeit a small one - I found THIS BLOG POST which shares more about her - it also includes links to her FB page and to the EDEN FOUNDATION - her work is evidenced by the smiles in the shot of her surrounded by some of her "kids" from Niger -
Yep, still stunned - it will be sad not to have her FB messages - especially the greetings Sheba and she would send for our birthday/gotcha days - so very wrong to lose someone so determined to make a difference -
She did leave this world a better place - all of us can only hope to have an impact like Esther did -
Please make sure to hug someone today!

BTW, Khyra will probably have something to say about how I went to The GKP for half a shift today - she should know that I'll do what I can to make it up to her!
