There are times in our lives that overwhelm us and the best way to heal is to grow quiet.
Some of you may remember that husband had his shoulder replaced on the cusp of the new year, then not long after my mother fell. It was during these challenges that Lacy began getting sick off and on as well.
We did our best with everyone. Michael is doing well and has great moth in and strength back. Mother, after hospitals, rehab and another hospitalization is healthy and back at home with her little daschund "Fritz" awaiting her 94ht. birthday on June 3rd!
But . . . try as we did with our hearts, souls and lovely vet, Lacy kept getting weaker and sicker.
She was at minimum 15.5 years old and could have been up to 17 ~ She was a rescue so we never knew her true birthday.
She was not always an easy dog. She was very protective of us and our home, but once in her "fold" ~ she loved you.
We will give our hearts to another ~ Lacy would want us to share "her" home as she knew is was a good, happy and safe one. She knows too, that a furry face and little paws will soak up the tears and help us heal.
In her honor we will plant a pink dogwood tree in the garden.
Peace, Our dear one . . .
When life is stressful, creativity does not come easily and often not at all.
I have managed to enjoy my teaching events. The From Our Hands Creative was amazing in it's new local and another teaching event with a stitcher's guild was lovely.
It was good for me to get out of a "too quiet" house and not think sad thoughts.
I am working together back on track in the studio and hope to bring to life a few spring pieces.
I'm an optimist at heart, so I know the sadness will subside and as it does a bit of creativity will emerge.
As in the garden , a bit of sunshine would help things along!
My hope is to have new offerings for you in a few weeks.
