Bee, whose site is now private, is hosting this series and I’m going with a poem I wrote for Hubby in 2019.
He’s been my rock since we met, and I would not have come through my cancer so well without his love and support.
I watch you sleep.
So tired, so drained,
You’ve aged ten years in as many days.
Breathing deep and slow,
Your face relaxed,
But concern etched in every line.
We share our pain and ills
You and I,
What is felt by one
Is sensed by the other.
Knowing you are there
Watching over me.
Rest is key,
However hard that may be
I know I must surrender.
So tired, so drained,
I watch you sleep,
I will get well.
I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
Oh this is absolutely lovely.
You’re welcome 😉
❤️ need a love button for this one, a like button doesn’t do it justice.
I remember when I wrote it Fransi. He was exhausted after several restless nights because of my surgery.
I can relate Di.i know how exhausted he must have been — physically, mentally and emotionally.
Such beautiful words. ♥️. I can fully relate 🕯and hope both of you are well 🤩. Thanks for taking part 🙋♀️🐝
Thanks Bee. Yes, we are OK and currently enjoying sunny weather!.
btw, I’ve put your link in now
Glad you are ok and have sunny weather. We had some much needed sun too but I used the day to sort out our front room and do some early spring cleaning 🤗🙋♀️🐝
Oh! So beautiful 💜💞
