This past week has had quite a few ups & downs . All just natural life events but all lumped close together.
My moms best friend passed away. Her name was Barb & I have so many early memories of her. She owned a dog named Willie. He was always outside chained to his doghouse. The kids in the neighbourhood were scared of him because if he got loose he was known to bite . He never bit me :) Sometimes he would sit on the front steps of my house with me, I wished he was mine.
Barb would pick me up every Sunday to take me to church. I was about 6 at the time. My mom bought me a special "church hat" to wear. After church we would all go for pancakes.
Barb had 2 daughters & her younger one Suzanne babysat us. She was very strict. Later when Suzanne had kids I babysat for her.
2 days after Barb passed away my mom's friends sister died. I didn't know her but felt bad for my mom.
I got a phone call this morning that my sister is going to have to put her dog to sleep today She is in kidney failure & has been having seizures all night :(
She is probably gone now, & I'm sad.
Yesterday afternoon I was at a baby shower. My friend Jaime had a baby boy 6 weeks ago. He is adorable .
Life goes on, nothing we can do about it. Sometimes bad stuff, but thankfully lots of good stuff to balance it all out.
