Sad

No stamping today. I mentioned yesterday that we had some family stuff going on. Saturday my MIL had to spend a night in the emergency room due to an accidental fall and is now staying with us until she feels well enough to go back to her own house, and Sunday our bunny got very sick and today, after we took him to the vet, things are not looking too good. Basically, unless we have a miracle, I don't expect him to make it through the night. He's almost 8 years old and he's lived a good life, so we knew that this day would be coming sooner or later, but it stil hurts to lose a member of the family, even if it's only a furry little one.

So it's been a rough weekend and week so far and, needless to say, stamping has not been anywhere near the top of the things to do. If you have some spare positive thoughts or energy as you're reading this, perhaps you might consider directing them our way -- seems like just about now we could use them.

Diane, my heart goes out to you. I know how attached you are to Stew. We always know our little furry children will not live forever, but it still hurts like Hades to loose them. Take care, my friend. Trina

Loss of a 'fur baby' is a very heart-wrenching thing...and only those who love pets, can understand your loss. Sending you strength and hugs.

There is no way t explain how the loss of a furry friend can hurt, unless you have been there yourself. I have and it hurts so very much! My thoughts are with you ! Sandy in NH (Supplies arrived just as you said).

Hi Diane,

Sending some soothing thoughts your way. I am grateful that your MIL wasn't seriously injured and that you did have 8 fun years with your bunny. But it is tough to lose them and I'm sad for your family. We'd be lost without our kitties, they are a big part of our life.

So sorry about your little furry one, Diane. We have lost several over many years and those that are gone still bring tears. One of my favorite sayings in hard times is an old proverb, "A misty morning does not signify a cloudy day." I hope this is true in the case of your MIL - I'm sure adjusting is difficult for everyone right now. Peace to you, your family, and soon peace for the little one.
