We are home safely from our cabin trip. It was so nice to have the time away to rest, relax and be together. We missed each of you, but you never left our hearts. After all, our hearts are always connected by paws!
For the most part, it was cloudy and rainy the first 4 days at the cabin….We know our precious Jazzi Sunshine Angel was working over time to let us know she was there. Often we caught a beautiful glimpse of the sun hidden behind the clouds………….we felt her presence at all times. You will see the pictures on my page. The last night there, Jazzi blessed us with the most incredible sunset (picture on her page)…as if she was saying...I am at peace. I live within all of you.
We have never traveled with CK before. He did very well and had a fun time. My Granny and Papa came and spent a couple of days with us, too. ti was such a great family time.
Mommy rested some and is still recovering from the flu. I rested as well. Got lots of frosty paws and pampering!
We rescued one dog and kitty while there. The animals seem to find mommy everywhere. They are in new loving homes in Oklahoma.
Our trip was much different than anticipated…the second day there, mommy received a phone call from one of her dearest friends. Mommy didn’t think too much when the call came in as they talk a lot. However, her friend was calling to let her know that her husband died. Mommy and dad were so shocked and saddened. Mommy’s friends’ husband had cancer, just like my daddy’s…..as a matter of fact, my daddy was his cancer buddy and huge supporter…..hit daddy really hard. I think Daddy was his hero, as I know he is ours.
Our precious friend’s death definitely changed the tone of the trip……….really put things in perspective. I caught mommy holding daddy tightly and saying, “thank God you are a live.” So, as all of you can imagine, the trip was different than expected. Our hearts are still heavy and with each minute of each day, we count our blessings…no matter how tough life can be. Mommy always says, we can’t change life, but we can continue to live life to the fullest and keep our hearts and minds appreciative and giving.
After much thought and really missing the sunshine, we realized why it was so cloudy and rainy, as our Jazzi Angel was working so hard to help our precious friend to heaven…………………once he arrived peacefully, she could light up our world with sunshine and healing love. She was right where she needed to be.
One more thing….to all those of you with cancer or who know someone with cancer….never give up hope and remember….
“WHAT CANCER CAN NOT DO
Cancer is so limited
It cannot cripple love
It cannot shatter hope
It cannot corral faith
It cannot eat away peace
It cannot kill friendship
It cannot shut out memories
It cannot silence courage
It cannot invade the soul
It cannot reduce eternal life
It cannot quench the spirit”
Golden hugs of love and appreciation, Sissy and family
