I love that most about her...she is so devoted to her little tree house cottage.
I have been fortunate enough to find other books while out and about at thrift shops over the years as well.
So all that being said, I have many good books to keep me company for a very long time to come, but going back to the image I posted at the top...with all my many good books, my dog Jessie....and everything else surrounding me here in my humble mobile cottage....I do feel very lonesome from time to time! Even with my children and grandchildren close enough to call and one of them could be here within minutes....still, ever so often...I get that old lonesome feeling. If you live by yourself ....then maybe you can understand what I am trying to convey. Its kinda hard after you have had a full household for many years then one by one they go away until you are left alone! Sometimes one may feel...what is the use to cook for one, I will just snack. You eat alone...whatever you do ...you do it alone! At other times..I have felt...its great...having nobody to care for...just myself. I eat when I want to...get up when I want...go to bed when I want to...nobody....just me , myself and I, but I sometimes get lonely :) As I stated in my previous post...I am in a different season of my life...which takes adjustments...that I understand :) And truly in a sense...I do know that I am never truly alone...nor ever forsaken, to be sure. Christ promised to never leave us, and he never will! I am still grieving the loss of my little friend too....he was my companion...more than I realized before. I must think " Happy Thoughts "...count my blessings...fight the feelings of depression I suffer at times. I have not lost my hope...no, not I! I am looking forward to Autumn and cooler days....thoughts of the upcoming holidays...fun times indeed....and lots of cold winter nights...suggled sound in my bed...reading a very good book.

Why art thou castdown, Oh my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God. Psalms 43: 5
I pray you have a very blessed Lord's day tomorrow...Shelley
