The Loss of a Friend

 On December 11th, 2021, we lost our Bear. It's hard to believe that 5 months has passed already. There is still way too much space in our house without him. Eventually, we will adopt another dog to help fill that void in our life. My husband and I are nearly empty-nesters, and the house is too quiet. Going for a walk seems pointless without our best friend. I can take walks with my husband but walking by myself is still unbearable. I'm at the point in my grieving where I no longer forget that he's gone. Thinking of him brings on an overwhelming wave of grief, but it's not quite as bad as it was, and I can even, once in awhile, remember him and smile. Having lost several animals during my life, I know I'm on the right path in my grieving process, and that eventually all that will be left is the wonderful memories.


 I wanted to drop in and wave hello to all of you out there who are still following my blog.  I have been going through a difficult time in my life and rarely think of blogging, although it's an extremely supportive community.  At least,  my small audience is. One of the things I have been doing to make myself feel better is art journaling. I was skeptical at first,  but it has turned out to be one of the most enjoyable parts of my day.  Have any of you ever tried it, and what are your thoughts? 

My Bedroom

 Yes, I have become a bit of a princess over these past few years. I not only have my own bedroom,  it's the master room and ensuite. I need to be surrounded by beauty to feel a sense of safety, comfort and joy. So, I am very particular with what goes into my rooms. You don't see them in the photos,  but my cats are both sleeping, one on my legs, the other right beside me.
