Thank You!

Shelby
We just wanted to say thank you to everyone for your thoughtful condolences.    Sarge was so loved by all of us.   He is certainly missed.

   In spite of the winter weather Shelby and I continue to take our daily walks.    The fields are painted white.  Gray skies cloud the view.   The bare tree branches  reach high seeking hope that the sun will shine again.

So it is with me.

My sweet mom has been  hospitalized for a broken back (sacroiliac).  Unable to walk or move she has been bed fast since January 1st.  We thought a week ago things were improving when they moved her to a rehab center.  Unfortunately there were complications and she had to return to the hospital.  

Some of you have personally emailed me and are praying for her.    Thank you.    Your prayers and thoughts are so appreciated.  For certain it is what changes the course of things.

 "The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective."  James 5:16b (NIV)

"Looking Up"


Bless each of you for taking time to visit and "look up".


Hugs 

Debbie

  9. What a difficult beginning to the year. I didn't know about your mom and I hope that ultimately, things will get better for her. Maybe just slow improvement bit by bit.

    Shelby looks right at home in that snow! I am going to stop complaining about the fog and dampness that we have had recently. Look at your snow!

    Take care of yourself and keep going. You can do it!

  23. Bonjour ma chère amie,

    Un petit billet rempli de tristesse.
    Je comprends ce que vous pouvez ressentir avec la perte de votre très beau toutou. J'ai vécu plusieurs fois cette situation. Nos amis à quatre pattes ont une place dans notre vie qui n'est pas celle d'un animal mais d'un membre à part entière de la famille et lorsqu'ils partent au ciel ils laissent un grand vide.

    En ce qui concerne votre maman, je lui souhaite un prompt rétablissement.
    Aujourd'hui lorsque j'allumerai mes petites bougies, je penserai fort à vous.
    Prenez bien soin de vous...

    Gros bisous ♡ ☼ ♡

  24. Dear Debbie,
    Thank you so much for taking time to visit, and leaving such sweet words. What a good name you have suggested.. I don't know how I will choose one when he is finished.. Maybe then I will know..
    Jasper... Oh he did not have surgery, but in there for a few days for tests, and to keep perfectly still. It was his back again, and now has an enlarged liver. He seems to be improving at home now.. Very difficult to keep him still, especially when he is feeling better... But he ends up laying on my lap when I work.. So this is good..
    Blessings,
    Penny

  25. I love the photo of the snowy field. Looks like where I live, too. I admire you for getting out there and walking! Brrr! I hope your mom isn't feeling too much pain, that must be so difficult for her, and for you too. I'll be thinking positive thoughts for you. I'm glad you have Shelby, she looks like a good companion.

  26. I am so sorry I missed this. Your dear doggy friend. My heart is with you, it always hurts so much to loose these wonderful family members. They win us over with their faithfulness, companionship and joyful love of life. They are irreplaceable and always remain in our memories of those we loved and lost.

  27. Hi again Debbie. I'm sad for all the rough times you've been going through lately. I will continue to pray and think good and healing thoughts for you and your family. Your beautiful Shelby will help you through this too. I love the last photo you posted of Shelby looking up and his and Sarge's toys lying on the ground. Brings a tear to my eye as animals are so innocent.

  28. Shelby's such a gorgeous girl. Best wishes and hope your mom feels better soon.

  29. Oh Debbie, I'm sorry I didn't see this sooner. I am very sorry to hear your sad news and the loss of your Sarge. I know the huge hole our dear furry loved ones make when they leave us.

    Sending you special hugs and prayers for consolation and comfort.
