God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen.
--Reinhold Niebuhr
"Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But, if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything."

I know it’s been several days and people that don’t love pets have no idea of why I’m still sad. But, I had such a hard time going home last night. I walked in the house with Bandit like always and the first thing I did without even thinking was yell for Jake and reach over to open a package of Wet Food for Bandit.

Half way through reaching for the cat food I realized that Jake wasn’t there…he wouldn’t be coming to go potty. Then last night every time I sat down I expected him to crawl up on the couch with me and rub his cold nose on my arm to get me to pet him. It’s the little every day things that are the hardest to deal with the routines that are no longer part of the my life.

I’m sorry for another down post it’s just hard to let go.

Now lets get to the good news! I’ve talked to Erin and she’s feeling much better. She said she’s still really tired but otherwise not to bad. So at least one good thing came out of this weekend.

Tomorrow is Friday for me. I head to Scrappink weekend on Thursday. I think my cold is about broke up. Still a little cough and some stuffy nose but it’s much better also.

I so need to get stuff packed up. I’ve done almost nothing to get ready. I have my scrap stuff packed but realize I forgot some things so I think I need to pull it out and double check.

I want to say a very special thanks to all of my friends at The Shaker Box, CI and LPS for all the love and understanding that you have provided me this week. Love and Hugs to all of you.

God Bless,

Jane

I know it is hard to loose a beloved pet. I will be praying for you during this time of "adjustment". He was a part of your life for a very long time.
