Then Comes the Rain..........


Sweet book illustrated by Beatrix Potter

My visit to the doctor went well. I believe I am on the mend. Its much quieter in my home without the barking voice of little Duke that I have lived with for the past fourteen years. Its a change and it is different,but I will get use to it. All is well!
We got a good bit of rainfall yesterday,it was so needed,and I am so thankful for it. I received a package in the mail today from a sweet blogging friend. It is going to add some cheerfulness and color to my home. I will let you guess what it might be,and reveal it to you later in another post ,but at least one of  you already know...that would be the sender of such gift :)  Hope your weekend is wonderful.....blessings

Dear Shelley,

I am so sorry to hear about your beloved Duke's passing. It's so hard losing animals that are such a part of the family, isn't it? The hardest part for me is that I remember all the other animals that I've had that died, and the grief is compounded.

I am glad that you are on the mend; how sweet to receive a surprise in the mail!

Love,

Marqueta

I'm so sorry to hear about Duke...but I'm glad to hear that you're on the mend both physically and emotionally.
Glad to hear you got some rain too! We've had rain for almost daily for over two weeks. Sure wish I could share it with those who need it!
I'm looking forward to you revealing your special mail surprise!

Hi Shelley,

I like you new header! Very nice!

That is great your Doctor appointment went well. Blessings for continued healing.

I understand the quiet of a home when a pet has left... it is very hard not to feel it is empty without them and be overwhelmed with the memories. I am also experiences that right now and am saying prayers for both of us to be comforted and filled with the presence of Jesus to help us through. With time we will feel better until then... just know you are loved.

Love,
