A Tough Week

This past week has been full of changes in our
lives and in our hearts.

We signed the papers on Tuesday selling our little farmette.



We put a lot of labor and love into this special little get-away.




I will admit, it was hard to hand the keys over to the new owner.

But we wished him lots of happy memories!

We had plenty of them there!


On Friday we said good-bye to our beloved beagle
Molly.


She was diagnosed with acute kidney failure last fall.
We were lucky to have had her in our lives for almost 9 years.


She was one of the most loyal dogs I have ever had.


Molly loved everyone she met.
And they always ended up loving her too!


I like to think most of her happiest memories were while traveling
in the camper with us.


Those two were buddies!

I know as much as we miss her, 
that little Shaggy dog will miss her the most.

Lots of tears were shed this week from sadness.

It will be hard to begin this coming week
knowing some things will never be the same.

Thankfully my heart is full of happy memories
to get me through this rough patch.

  16. Oh, your post makes me so sad. I can feel the pain of your loss, especially since I just lost my beloved chicken Sally the other day. I know that sounds crazy, but I love my chickens as much as my dog and certainly more than my cat. They have so much personality that surprised me so. I never expected them to crawl into my lap and into my heart like they did. Your Molly makes me sad all over again. I desperately need to cling to the Lord in these times of loss, because He is the only one who can comfort. Praying His peace rest on you too.

  17. Thank you so much Cindy for your kind words! Our pets, no matter what type, become members of the family when you spend so much time with them. Hugs to you on your loss of Sally!

  18. Awwwwww Liz....I'm so sorry for your loss. How we let ourselves fall in love with those pets? My sophiejane is 14 and going downhill. She's my best friend and fear the day when it comes. I will be a basket case. So I completely understand your sadness and hope the time will come soon where all you have are happy happy memories of your time together,
    Change is so hard. Hard to say goodbye to your lil house and your baby.
    But it will get better and change always brings about new challenges, which keep us young!
