Mom said we have to be very gentle with it and treat it reverently, but said that yes, before she finds the perfect place to display it, we could see it. Here is a collage of me checking it out:
Me, Stormy, admiring the cross Riley and Star's mom made
Isn't it stunning?!!? I was VERY interested in it (I wonder if Star and Riley helped her with all that intricate beadwork?), as you can tell. Then I read the card their mom made, too, and it has a hymn on it that sings, "God will take care of you!" The whole thing was just so very touching and all of us just totally treasure the cross and card - but most of all what they represent.
Mom says my expression here says it all
...then let Dave take a turn seeing it. Since he's Mom's Guide Dog for the Color Blind and spends a lot of time in the Studio, he has a great appreciation for the time and talent it took Star and Riley's mom to create this!
"Stormy, when you're done, may I see it, please?"
He really is a well-mannered pup, isn't he? I think it's part of that whole "Texas gentleman" thing. Here's a collage of him admiring the cross:

I'm not sure, but I think he might have said a prayer or two over it!
Thank you again, Riley and Star's mom! It is so beautiful! Mom and we love it!
