Rambling On… 25 October 2019
In the last newsletter I told you all how I’ve been struggling and I’m glad to say I feel much better even though I’m a bit sad and upset that Toby passed away on Monday.
We all knew it was inevitable but that doesn’t make the loss of a family member any easier. He was with us for just over 15 years and wasn’t just a pet. As I’ve already said, he was part of our family.
Even though it was a difficult decision to make to have him put down, we know it was for the best. He was in constant pain and struggling with his dementia. A lot of the time he had no idea where he was or what he was doing. He was having more and more “toilet accidents” in the house but when he had one in his bed and he didn’t even wake up, we knew it was time.
He is back with his sister now and I know that he and Tasha are watching over us all from above.
For the last for days I’ve been constantly looking for him and I’ve nearly even gone to feed him once or twice.
The other day I swear I heard him tap his nails on the glass for me to let him outside. #Sigh. Sniff#
It’s going to take us all a bit of time to stop looking for him, but he’ll be forever in our memories and in our hearts just like his sister is.
I’d like to thank Janice W. from Canada and Carol C. for your thoughts and support and letting me know that you’re both there for me while I was ill and if I needed someone to talk to.
Although I haven’t replied to you via email, I wasn’t ignoring you, I was just struggling day to day on my own. I really appreciate you both reaching out to me and will never forget your kindness.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart. xxoo
I hope you all have a great weekend.
Stay safe, happy and healthy.
Love Becca Van xxoo
What Have I Been Writing?
Would you believe I’ve just finished writing Slick Rock 27: Survivors and am about to submit my story to Siren BookStrand for possible publication?
I know right, I didn’t think I’d finish before the end of the month since when I started, I was already behind. #Phew#
I really hope BookStrand decide to publish my book. I’m crossing my fingers and toes.
