One more goodbye

My blog has always been about "sharing".  Sharing ..not just what I create..but my everyday life.. and my family.  I've shared my pups often, and I'm sure by that .. you know how much I love them and how important a part of our family they are .  That's why even tho I don't want to share another sad thing here on my blog...  I have to.. because it's what's going on in my life right now.    Yesterday our sweet Aly pup went to heaven.   She was by my side for 13 years.. and was the sweetest, kindest most gentle dog ever! I loved her beyond words.  Lots of loss in our lives right now, big holes.    



 It's hard to even talk about these past two weeks right now.   But I know life has to go on.. and getting back into a routine will help me stop dwelling on the sadness.  So... I'm doing this post all on it's own.. and then tomorrow I will moved on to sharing creative stuff again. Sometimes I feel like I've cried all I can cry.  I couldn't sleep last night , so I got up and worked on some things. Actually it was really therapeutic.  Sometimes just throwing yourself back into things and keeping your mind busy is best. 

Thanks for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers, and thanks for letting me share my life stuff ( happy and sad) with you here.    You have no idea how much your words have comforted me these past couple of weeks especially.  Thanks friends!

Vicki, I am so sorry. You have really had a lot to handle lately, but then it seems sometimes that that's how it is. Everything at once. Even when we think nothing else could possibly happen. You are in my prayers.

So terribly sorry to hear about your sweet dog. It's not fair that their lives pass so fleetingly. Take care of yourself, xoxox.

Oh Vicki, I am so so very sorry... I know how much you loved Aly. I am keeping you close to my heart and in my thoughts right now. Please know your friends care so much. Aly is romping in heaven... I hope that image/thought comforts you. I know it does help me when I recall beloved pets who have passed away. BIG Gentle ((HUGZ))~ Ali in NS

I'm so sorry for your losses, Vicki...but at least you know your mom will have company...you always said how much the dogs loved her, so I'm sure Ally just knew she was needed elsewhere...my thoughts and prayers are with you and your wonderful family...

Loretta said...

My heart aches for you and you are in my prayers. We have no children, but our Bart Dog (now a little over 10, who came to us about age 4yrs) is our kid. We can't imagine life without him! I cried for you too! Take care.

Hello Vicki,

I have not read your blog for a few months....I opened up the e-mail today....
My heart goes out to you and your family,
I have always enjoyed seeing your photos with your mom and family year round and holidays and your dog.

I love reading your blog...and it is totally understandable.
I have never meet you but love your work.
Take Care.
Ann

I went through the same thing when my little Presley went over the Rainbow Bridge. Our pets will be waiting - strong and happy for us and they know how much you love them. Sending you love and prayers. God bless.

Vicki, I don't know you personally but have followed your blog and you have helped me with Glimmer Mist, my heart is heavy with you and as I try to process things I thought of you. I lost my Dad Wednesday and can only say I am sorry for your broken heart. May you be full of happy memories.

Sunfairy said...

Sweet Vicki, you've certainly had more than your share of heartache lately. I wish I had the words that could bring you some comfort and ease. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers every day. Your friends are always here for you, in any way we can help.
Warmest hugs honey

Oh, Vicki....so sad to hear this! You are surely walking through the valley right now, and I pray that God will just wrap his arms around you and comfort you as only He can. You are in my thoughts, and I pray that after this dark night, the dawning will be especially brilliant for you. Hugs.....

You are in my thoughts my sweet and dear friend.

Linda said...

I'm so sorry... it's such a loss. We lost our beloved Charley two years ago the 31st and I would still cry if I let myself. A dog is such a blessing.... cherish the memories....

Bless your heart. I can't imagine 2 harder losses - and within such a short period. I often joke that I like my dogs better than I like my kids, so I know how those hairy creatures can steal your heart. I'm so glad you've been able to work on crafty things and found it comforting.

<3, Doris

Vicki, I am so sorry about all of your losses. I bet your mom and your fur baby are up in Heaven with their revived spirits playing with each other. Prayers for you and all of your family.

Toni K said...

So sorry for your losses. Sometimes life is hard. Tomorrow will be a better day. Hugs.

Diana said...

I'm so sorry for your loss. Our pets are family. My heart really aches for all that you are going through. I am so sorry about your precious mom and fur baby. I wish I could give you a big hug.

Dear Friend, My heart aches for you. I have not lost my parents so I don't know the immense pain of that. However, our little mini pin went to heaven last January and I still get teary eyed and sad at times. I wonder if Aly knew it was time because your mom went ahead to prepare a place for them both since they were so close. Thank you for sharing them with all of us. <3, Annette
