It’s been a while since I wrote in my blog. A lot has happened.  My Mom passed away on October 6th.   I have been a bit frozen since then.   Then, about two weeks ago our sweet dog Logan, our lovely black and white whippet, was diagnosed with lymphoma.  It crushed us to the core to hear we may only have another few months with him.

Our precious Logan. Then, just a week after the  diagnosis,  we rushed him to the emergency vet at 5:30 a.m. on the same Sunday morning of Kobe Bryant’s tragic plane crash,  and said goodbye to our sweet boy less than 20 minutes later.   It was surreal.   What happened?  It’s still hard to believe.  And, I am slowly accepting that my dear mother isn’t here.  The shock has passed, or has it?  The high octane chocolate candy bars I bought for her still sit in the pantry.   Her pictures sit in boxes in our home office.   I cannot touch them.   And, my mom’s lovely smile remains in my heart.  Nothing can take that away.  I am blessed to have sweet memories.    And, I am beginning to accept the circle of life.   Ouch, life is so fragile.  In the blink of an eye everything can change.    Mom’s death wasn’t expected.   It was a stroke, a terrible awful stroke that took her life.

You never know what’s around the corner do you?   Enjoy the day, it is the only day we have.  Today I will enjoy it.   I hope you will too.
