Thank you everyone so much for your thoughtful comments on our loss. Yesterday was a difficult day...to say the least. Even when you know it's coming, that doesn't make it any easier. But I appreciate your cyber hugs immensely. My quilting den will never be the same....I won't have a companion sitting on the sewing table batting my thread as I sew. I suppose I'll have to bribe Emmitt to ride 'shotgun' beside me as I sew, though his chunky self won't be very comfortable up on the sewing table. Perhaps a comfy bed beside my chair will work. I better keep the MilkBone treats handy!
Today....I'm going to begin looking forward...
Maybe that will take my mind off of the fact that we are in for frigid temps...high winds...and dangerous wind chills over the next couple of days. I still think I would rather have multiple feet of snow in a storm instead of the cold. BRRRRRR. We had about 6" of snow yesterday....and today....as the day goes on, the cold becomes a bit unbearable.
So I'll look forward to Spring...to lilacs...to sunshine....and happy days!
Stay safe and warm wherever you are!
