trying for happy

Momy and Dady have been staying with Maw Maw at night. So we see them some in the evenings and in the mornings when they come home to get ready for work. We live walking distance so they are close but not in bed with us however we Promise we have been keeping the bed comfortable for them while they are gone.
We arent sure how long this arraingement is going to last but we know its important for Maw Maw to be comfortable and happy right now and that sleeps are good for her.
So we are trying to be happy.

**a word from Momy**
Things here are ok ... while its different my dad had the shit happens attitude and taught me that ... shit happens, pick up where I left off and keep on moving ... think of me, remember me but dont be sad about it. while thats hard to do ... somehow Im doing it.

My dad was only 60, he had no health issues so obviously his sudden death was a shock. He had worked that day and even came to the fire house for a cookout Monday evening, he was fine, laughing, joking and eating hotdogs. The ER doctor seems to think he had a massive heart attack in his sleep, he never felt a thing, never had a pain, there was no suffering, he was just gone. He looked very peaceful laying in his bed, in his usual position - not knowing how long he had been that way Shon and I did CPR anyway until the medics arrived. I know he had not planned to leave us - we had too many plans, too many things and projects to get done and we had just planted a huge garden ... sometimes all the planning isnt enough ... but as dad would say ... shit happens and this is definately shitty ... but I cant go back in time and change it the only option I have is to pick up where he left off and keep on moving.

Thank you to you all for the purrs and head-butts, hugs and kisses, thoughts and messages. I truly do appreciate them. While I dont "know" any of you - its really great to have the support and kindness.


  1. That is a lot for your Momy to have to deal with, but I know you will help purr her to the right place. Hugs from all of us.

  2. I am sorry for the loss of your daddy. It hurts and will for a long time. It's hard when you are close and there is so much more you want to do together. I will pray for you.

  3. Continued purrs, Light and hugs from all of us.

  4. I don't know what is harder, a slow painful decline or a sudden unexpected loss. We are very sorry for the your loss. I think all of us would agree there is never enough time and you always want just one more day and one more and....sending your healing purrs.


  5. Purrs and prayers for your Momy and Dady. Losing someone unexpectedly is so hard for those left behind but so much better for those who leave.

  6. I know how this hurts, but be happy that he was not sick for a long time. It was sad but a blessing to see my Dad go. He had suffered for months. My Mom has been sick but was improving when she set up in bed declared she was dying and did. Quick, and with my sister and brother in law holding her hands!

    It will take time to heal. Work the garden and harvest his love.

  7. We are very sorry for the sudden loss of your dad. Yes, things happen but they still hurt. Sending a hug, purrs and tail wags.

  8. We are very sorry for your loss. Sending you our best thoughts and biggest, sweetest purrs. And thank you for stopping by our blog the other day, visiting and leaving us a comment. It is nice to meet you all and we love your pictures of the fawn that was in your yard, very precious.
