Hi everyone. First, let me again thank everyone who has shared their thoughts and prayers for my FIL. So far so good. He is doing well at home and we are optimistic that things are turning for the better. We will know more in the New Year and I shall update you all then.
While I feel very blessed to share that good news with you, I am sad to report that today was a very hard day for me. Today, my husband and I had to have our dear cat, Tuna Boy, put to sleep. A companion for longer than our marriage, he has been all over the country with us and a dear part of our family for nearly sixteen years. I have no doubt that we made the loving choice today but it was a difficult and painful one only exasperated by having to explain to our two children why their beloved pet had to leave them. I know that I am not unique to such a loss but it is a profound one.
I beg indulgence from my kind bloggers so overdue in their thanks as I postpone my anticipated celebratory post. I have not forgotten you and I look forward to being in a much better frame of mind to share my appreciation. For the moment, I am going to take a little time to process this not-so-little loss.
