Have you missed me?.............

 
Just thought I'd pop by to say Hi!
 
Still feeling raw and missing  (Shona) the bear  ** like crazy but trying to keep busy ... they say that time is a healer but I think we miss her more as the days go by (She passed over the Rainbow Bridge on the 11 Feb)
 
**(Sorry I have confused people a little with my Bear description .. Her name was Shona and she was our Teddy Bear/ Polar Bear and answered to many, many names .. different abbreviations of Shona, sometimes it was just B but she still answered to it .. hope I haven't confused people too much)
 
 
 

Wasn't she a beautiful girl.

I'm not into card making at the moment so I hope you like what I'm posting going forward.

Edited to add................

I must admit I seriously considered not posting anything again .. I feel sometimes that I'm talking to myself .. I want to take this opportunity to thank all my Followers who comment .. especially those who commented on my Heartbroken Post.

Sometimes you get the feeling that people only follow for the freebies or to copy ideas.

Sorry, you try not to let it bother you but I've got to be honest.
 
30/02/2013 - Further editing to add...............
 
I just want to say a big thank you to everyone who commented with such lovely messages .. I read a few with tears in my eyes and can sympathise with many of you who have had a pet pass on.
 
Many thanks again .. I appreciate each and every comment.
 
Many thanks for popping by.

Glad you felt like posting. Time does heal our hurts but going through the healing isn't always fun. Sure hope you have better days ahead and a peace that passes all understanding. Blessings to you :)

Pam said...

Yes, you have been missed! Time does heal and it will get better. Hugs to you {{{HUGS}}}

Lawren said...

You will get better. Glad to hear from you again.

Take care.

Suze said...

Thinking of you at this sad time. May you treasure all the beautiful memories that you have of her. Hugs from NZ, Suze.

Sorry to hear about your family member/best friend. In 2008 I lost my boxer due to cancer. I still miss her so much because she had been with me at the worst time of my life and she always knew when I needed her to be next to me to comfort me. It took me three years to get another companion. I have a new boxer. Her personality is kind of wild which is the opposite of my beloved Chopper but every now and then when I have rough days she does something that reminds me of Chopper. We pet owners are a crazy bunch but we understand each other. I hope that the days ahead get better for you. Prayers, Velma

Sometimes time doesn't heal, esp. when you lose a beloved pet, I know. It eases the pain some, but you can never forget. Wish prayers & wonderful thoughts of your beloved doggie.

Wish I could give you a big hug! Praying that each day is much brighter and for God to bring you comfort. When I got over the shock of losing one of my beloved cats that I had for fifteen years, I scrapbooked some pages on him, and it was so cathartic. It reminded me of all the good times, and how blessed I was to have had him as long as I did. (although it's never long enough.) I think God is caring for my babies now, as well as all the furbabies that pass over. Sorry this is so wordly; just wanted to let you know that we care!

We lost our boys over 10 yrs ago,beautiful golden retrievers.We still miss them but lovely memories help.

Linda said...

I am so sorry for your loss. very sorry. Allow yourself time to grieve, there is no time table. My daughter and I had a cat...Fluffy..die at age 19. 10 years ago. we still can get each other crying over the loss. If you have anyone to talk to about Bear, I mean ramble on and on about and laugh and tell stories of your beautiful fur baby and the funny and silly and whatever made you love your pup..well, take advantage of it! The pain will be tempered and less raw with time, but don't rush! My advice about the blog is this, take it or leave it, don't make any decisions while the pain is so raw. Do it if it gives you joy, don't if it causes more pain. You will know what is right for you when time is right. hugs and prayers and love to share your pain, Linda

Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for your lovely comments.

I have responded individually to some of you but I just wanted to Thank everyone else.

Sorry to hear about your lose. Time will heal. Just remember the precious memories. Your friend Beverly

Bunny said...

I'm not an animal owner, but my Mother is. Her dog is her life. It's her baby. I pray that God eases your pain and lets you remember the so many fun times you had with B. It takes some people a long time to get another pet but not my mid 80's mother. She went to an adoption shelter 3 days after her last pet died and brought home a scared, skinny, mistreated baby who has turned into a good companion. Things will get better.

Lynn (aka Lynnpenguin) said...

So sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved BEAR...I feel your pain as I have been there several times, most recently last October when we had to put our beloved dog Elly down...what a difficult time it...time does heal...but you must know/sense that BEAR is with you in your heart and thoughts. Take care...

Helen Dooley said...

Sorry for such a great loss, its hard ewhen you dont know where they are, im sending you big hugs and prayers! He is adorable!

Toni said...

So sorry for your loss. Just know that we all care.

Lenoria said...

Hi Suze,
I have never visited your site before but I just had to send you my heartfelt sympathy over the loss of your beautiful little family member. I hope you feel better soon but I know from experience that it takes time. It is just hard to put into words.

Diane said...

My deepest sympathies to you & your family in this very sad time. My heart aches with yours.

May your heart heal & the bright memories you carry keep her alive in your heart.

Swimmom said...

I"m so sorry about the loss of your cute little pup. I was never a pet owner growing up; we only just adopted a dog under 2 years ago, when my oldest child was going off to college, and my youngest was just into high school. So while the dog was "for the kids", guess who's home most of the time with the pooch? Well, it's true what they say - it doesn't take long for our pets to become part of the family and I can't imagine our home without her. My heart goes out to you; know that you are in my thoughts and that I know you will feel a little better every day and be left with only happy memories.

Pat Kinkaid said...

There is nothing more painful than losing a loved one, and only time can heal your heart. The pain will go away, the love...never.

~ginny said...

Oh my gosh... I have a lump in my throat - I so feel your pain! When ever I lose one of my babies - and I have lost many over the years - we bury them and I read this excerpt from The Once Again Prince:

"We who choose to surround
ourselves with lives even more
temporary than our own,
live within a fragile circle,
easily and often breached.
Yet we still would live no other way.
We cherish memory as the only
certain immortality, never fully
understanding the necessary plan."

From The Once Again Prince
By Irving Townsend

I hope that can give you a little peace of mind as it does for me.
Thinking of you and your Bear!

Edwina said...

I know how you feel about your pet. Bear was the name my brother gave his dog when he brought it home. He still misses him. I lost my Mittens 2 weeks ago. I still look for her every time I go into the living room. I can still here he meow. My heart broke losing her, but I found crafting helped me cope with the lost. I hope you can feel encouraged and keep going on. Make something in memory of your bear. it will help. Edwina Brown

Misty said...

grandma's joy dqheart said...

our pets take a special place in our hearts and when they leave that spot stays empty. wishing you and yours will enjoy the memories bear has left with you and may time heal your wounds.

Linda said...

I would have to say I agree with Pat K...our furbabies are very special as they love us unconditionally (except my 2 cats who think I am their slave or a really bad harpy mother). We had to put our baby Shivers down a year ago and that was super hard. Thinking of you!!!

Donna said...

So sorry for your loss! Pet s can be very close to us and we miss them as much if not more. I hope that time will help you remember the good times!

patti said...

So sorry for your loss! I know how hard a time this is so remember all the time you had with her and smile!!

Diana said...

So sorry 4 your loss. I know how you feel, I had to put down my cat that I had 4 11yrs.

Jenn Borjeson said...

I am so very sorry for your loss. I understand completely - we have kitties that we simply adore, and they have about 20 names each... :) There is something special about a pet that you are attached to. Sending you a big hug. xo

Averil said...

My first visit to your blog. Have just read this post and your last one, and wanted to tell you that I understand so much of what you are going through and feeling. Said goodbye to my darling Amber(my second Rough Collie)just over a year ago. She was 15 too.Time does make it easier, so hang in there and remember all the funny things she did. Hugs. Averil xxx

Elaine Brown said...

They become our little girls. There unconditional love stays with us even when they are gone. She would want you to smile, laugh and continue to love. I know, how special this little ones are in our lives; but mostly I know she would want you to continue to be happy. Keep strong, Laugh often, and remember the good times. Elaine

sue said...

So sorry to hear of your loss. We were never doggy people until our children flew the nest. We have 2 poodles who are the best thing ever. I am all tearful writing this as I can feel your pain and dread the time when we will be without our special family members.
I send you my love and thoughts.

Mama Bear Stonich's Craft Blog said...

i'm sorry for your loss of Bear. may your memories of Bear give you comfort.

Flaming Junebug said...

I have just found your blog and can understand what you are going through. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

sweetpea1030 said...

I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your little doggie. We got our little man when he was a puppy and lost him after 17 years. The grief is real and you should allow yourself to grieve.

Think about the reason you blog. It should be something you do for you, whether anybody else reads it or not.

I started my blog to have a place to discuss coloring. My coloring has improve. I had to re-evaluate what I wanted to do from here on. Now, along with inspiring others to color, I have decided to give away some of my colorings on my blog. Will I be disappointed if nobody wants them? Sure I will. Since the purpose for my blog is to inspire and share coloring, I may have to re-evaluate the purpose.

I'm sorry I'm so long, but I read about so many folks being disappointed by the amount of page views or the lack of comments. Even if folks come for the freebies, isn't that why you're posting them in the first place?

Hang in there. Just think about why you blog. If it's a chore then maybe you shouldn't blog but find something else that brings you peace of mind and heart.

Claudia said...

I'm so so sorry for your loss... yes, time does heal, but it take a long TIME. You will never forget you little angel, but time will make it easier to remember the fun and love that filled your life while she was here with you. God Bless.

Cazann49 said...

I'm so sorry for the loss of your beautiful companion. I know it takes a long time to heal, but when you reflect on the wonderful life she had with you, she was truly loved,so she was blessed to have such a caring mummy. In this sometimes cruel world, it is heartwarming to know that someone looked after their pet companions as Jehovah intended them to do, to take care and love them. I hope your pain eases soon. Just remember what a lovely life she had with you, and in time you will be able to smile again when you think about her...xxx

G-ma said...

Guess I was a little confused...when you stated you missing your friend...I thought she had run off (wish that was the case). Reading comments I realized what happen. I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved pet. I am taking care of my son's dog while they're in Korea and will truly miss her when they come home to claim her. And I have lost my friend, Cindy (a Chow-Chow) and miss her as she was my protector. Time does heal, and memories are wonderful ..... God bless.

Ardilla said...

The first weeks are the hardeest, but them time heals!
I send a big hug just to comfort you :)

Gopi said...

Sending you gentle hugs and lots of love from myself and my dog Khushi.

I came across your page today via free digital stamps.

I saw Shona's name, and wanted to share that in India, it has a few different meanings, such as "beautiful" and "beloved." I thought it fit Shona's picture, and your relationship with Shona, just perfectly.

I hope time only fills your heart with beautiful memories.

xoxo!

Alicia Baldwin said...

I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful furry family member. I know how devastating it can be to lose one of our babies so my heart goes out to you at this time! May time pass quickly to turn your pain into loving memories of days gone past! *Hugs*

Planetsusie said...

I have just popped over from the Free digital stamps site and I want to send you a huge virtual hug. I am so so sorry about your gorgeous dog Shona - she was certainly a beauty. We lost our furry babies last year, (cats though). Ebony died from cancer on Jan 6 and Misty had a stroke and died on 12 Feb. I think she missed her best pal myself. It still hurts now but not so much, I can remember things they both did and laugh instead of cry so it does honestly get better - a little bit at a time.

Big hugs to you.

Love Sue Pxxx

Jennifer Scull said...

I am so very sorry to hear about your special family member..... because they really are more than a pet - they are a part of the family and a part of our hearts. sending a big hug across the internet.

Vicky Gould said...

Those of us who have pets can feel your pain. They are our babies and we will miss them forever. What a little beauty she was....keep the good memories.

Scrapcat 1 said...

I am so sorry you have lost your beloved little bear, it does get better with time and you will be able to relive the happy times again, but I understand how you feel at the moment. Take care Tracy

Laura Catherine said...

So sorry to hear your sad news. Your and tours are in my thoughts. Love and best wishes.

Leah said...

You are right.. Bear was a beautiful baby. We lost our Zeus and Angel in the same year ( 3 years ago) and time does heal the pain, but the memories get to remain. On of my fondest memories of our Angel was running down the road pulling our youngest son on his skate board. She was his best friend. They were together from the time he was 5 until he was 20, And Zeus as a great dane was the kindest dog I have ever loved.

God be with you in your time of healing.
Leah

Em's Thoughts said...

So sorry to hear about Shona. I know how hard it is to lose a pet that is like family. I pray God will strengthen you and heal your heart.

Chris said...

So Sorry your little one went over the bridge. My little oddie went over 12 years ago and I still miss him everyday. I feel him in bed with me at night. I now have a Dexter and love him to bits. But still can feel Oddie in my bed.

You and yours will be in my doggy prayers.

PashaCou said...

I am so sorry for your loss, I know that sounds trite but I have lost my 3 dogs in the last 5 years to old age, arthitis, and liver disease. Just remember the good times and visit her. I still go out to the graves to visit and talk to them. When you are ready you will know the dog for you when you see it and he/she will help with the pain immensly. My Pookie has been a huge help. I will keep you in my prayers.
Hugs,

Keep It Sweet and Simple said...

Hello there, Suze
I haven't visited before, but I saw your sad news on 'free digi stamps' and had to pop over.
So sorry for your loss - you must be truly heartbroken. Your Shona was a real cutie and you must miss her like crazy.
I know if my Suzie is out at the groomers, even for just an afternoon, I feel like a spare part - just hanging around for her to come and round me up again!
I know it must be hard for you to think of the wonderful times you spent together, but I hope the pain eases for you soon.
(hugs) Caroline xxx
