Sarah's Angel

This little angel has traveled with me for 12 years. My friend Sarah in Santa Barbara made the angel for me and had discarded it because she said the color was all wrong. When I saw the angel, I begged her to let me have this one, exactly as it was. Last week a visitor in my house accidentally dropped the angel and it broke into four pieces. With a little Elmer's glue, I was able to reassemble my fellow traveler, good as new. I'm not sure what it is about this little angel that I find so appealing, maybe it's because Sarah had such a gentle soul and she is the one who made it. The angel sits in my studio and watches over my pugs and I every day. It has moved with me five times and knew my souldog Buddy and my Angel Wiggles, too. Now it watches over Annie, Howard and Java as they nap at my feet. It's small, but I'm a firm believer that even a little angel dust can be a very good thing...

How shocking it must have been to see your angel lying in pieces on the floor. I'm so glad you were able to fix it Nancy!

Sarah is obviously her own worst critic.

That is a wonderful angel. You must have been heartbroken when it broke into pieces. We are so glad you were able to fix it. Mom likes angels too. She says that the pugs who came before are our angels. I like that thought, that they are looking out for us.
