Hello; I hope 2019 is bringing a bright a fresh new beginning for everyone. We had a lovely week week last week with warm and delightful days but this week began with a cold, foggy drizzle and while it is a little depressing I've a little taste of spring last week so I am holding on to that.
I haven't posted in a while and the reason is that while we had a close and sweet family Christmas; we also had some sorrows. Our beloved little Rocky left us the night before Christmas Eve. There was no warning, he just seemed to have a stoke in my lap and a sad little goodbye. Needless to say we were all heart broken. Our sweet little four pound baby filled our hearts with love in abundance and we miss him more than I can say.
The day after Christmas my sister in law passed away. We were all shocked and heart broken. She had remarried to a wonderful man and we were very happy for them both; they had many years together but she was still part of my family much like my own sister and we will miss her and it is heart breaking to let her go.
Less than two weeks after Christmas, my Daughter and Grand daughter's baby Jasper left us. He was only three and a half years old and in perfect health or so we thought. He was running and jumped to catch a piece of paper carried by the wind and feel dead. It seems he had a genetic heart problem that had not been detected. My dear daughter and grand daughters were devastated, just as we were losing Rocky.
And so we move on, sadly but thankful for the time, love and sweet memories that we have and we look to spring with the light of hope and new beginnings.
