a year later....

Saturday, December 22, 2012

I haven't written a blog since last Dec 22nd..... my heart broke on the day my baby Winston died...... not a day goes by that I don't miss my little one...... that I don't think about him...... or wish I had him back with me again....... I didn't know then that within a few weeks his fur-brother, Indy would also die on his 13th birthday.....

A lot has happened in 2012...... I did adopt 3 new fur-children.... I couldn't live alone without a dog or 3....... and I know my sons would have wanted me to save other doggies that needed homes....... I've grown to love them and their differences.......

2 weeks ago I lost my brother-in-law to his fight from cancer..... the stem cell transplant just never worked and for most of this year it was efforts to keep him a little bit longer...... but he was tired and wanted to go home to be with Jesus...... we miss him but know he no longer suffers from such a horrible disease.......

I hope for me and my family some relief from hardships in 2013....... I'm not saying we are asking for anything just don't give us any more trials to bare in the year to come......

    Suz, I could feel myself 'choking up' as I read your blog!
    My heart still aches for Eddie 09/28/12.
    I try to reason with myself that he is at rest. Not
    having to go through lung taps and edema to where
    it was less than a week from one spell to another!
    Know that we are here for you!

    I am praying for a great year for your Suz. I am with you on wanting a happy trial free year. I am looking forward to the New Year and like you, praying it is better than the previous.
