A Change is Coming

I know I have made some personal changes lately by leaving my job of 18 years.  But, even with that being said I just feel that things are about to get very different.  For starters, I lost my cat and my dog and now only have one pet left...Ali, my cat.  Then at my new job the practice manager who was also the doctor's wife (they co-owned their vet clinic) died suddenly.  I hardly had a chance to know her.  My son picked up and moved to Texas for a girl and they are already talking marriage.  My mother in law has been having chest pains and although everything checked out okay, she still has a stress test to do which I think will be a miracle if she passes that.  I'm taking a dear friend of mine to see an oncologist today.  She has 5 kids and just found out she has multiple tumors on her ovaries. 

I don't know if it's all the loss lately but I just feel like I have been so lucky to have not had a lot of that in my life in the past and maybe my luck has run out a bit.  I know better than to worry, it's just a feeling things are changing, and will continue to change.  God, does indeed, work in mysterious ways.

How I am

Today is Wednesday.  It is my day off.  I'm missing Valentine as we would spend much of the day together.  Yesterday I broke down sobbing because I dropped a cheese ball on the floor!  Val would of got that.  Those things make me sad as corny as they sound.  I have decided to make a photo book of her for myself and each one of my kids.  Just going through ALL the pictures has made me feel better.  She had to have been the most photographed dog ever! I wish I was creative enough to write a book about her to share with the world- she was one that should be shared with the world, I know that.  

I appreciate all the thoughts and prayers that have been sent our way.  Jim and I feel so blessed to #1- have had her for so long and #2 to have such great friends and family that truely understand our pain.

Good-Bye Valentine

My best little Valentine went to heaven tonight.  She was 17 years & 7 months & 9 days old.  We were very blessed to have her in our lives as long as we did.  She will leave a void in our home and hearts.
