Vintage Cigar Box Labels

I'm amazed that I still knew how to upload images,
after being away from blogland for so long ...

I've really missed visiting everyone
and seeing all of the wonderful creations
that all of you talented ladies do ...

The stories from your lives have
been greatly missed as well ...

Unfortunately, for me, problems
with several of my health issues
have pretty much kept me
down most of this Summer ...


Then last Tuesday we said good-bye
to our precious little ferret, Spice ...
She'd been very sick with
adrenal gland disease and
we made many trips
back 'n forth to the Vet ...

We all did everything in
our power to help her,
and she fought a good fight ...
Many tears were shed as Spice
crossed over the Rainbow Bridge ...

Many of you know how
heartbreaking it is when one of
our fur-babies passes away ...
As with all of our pets,
Spice brought such joy to our hearts ...
She's missed by us, terribly ...

I'd like to say Thank-You to
everyone that visited and left
messages and prayers for me ...
and for the sweet emails, too ...
I'm still moving slow and that's not likely to change ...
Please know that I'm truly
looking forward to visiting ...
it's just going to take a bit longer to do than I'd like ...

It's my hope and prayer that
everyone's doing well and
enjoying the Summer ...

God bless ...

Until another time ... Pearl

Hi Pearl,
I'm glad to see you're back in blog land. I'm so sorry to hear about Spice. My thoughts and prayers are with you, I know what a difficult time you're having. Spice had a wonderful home though, something to be very happy about giving to her and lots of l-o-v-e, of course, too!
