Home to heartbreak

Back from wonderful trip to Maryland Sheep and Wool with my wonderful friend JenniethePotter where we hooked up with more wonderful old friends Amy and Heather and I met even more wonderful new friends Gretchen and Aisha and Lara.

Wish I could wax rhapsodic about the trip, but a lot of the wonderful came to a crashing halt when my husband had to put our older dog to sleep after a bizarre and very rapid illness. (stomach acid in lungs = very, very bad.) And I was still in Maryland. Yeah. For those keeping track, this was bang on 1 year and 1 month after Willy had to be put down while we were vacationing as a family in Florida. Don't even know what to think about it all. Anger. Pain. Hurt. Huge vortex of all 3 surrounded by a cloud of SAD.

Oh sweet Emma. I miss you. Miss you. Miss you.

I don't even know what to say other than my thoughts are with you and your family. Losing a beloved family member is heart breaking. I will keep you in my thoughts.

I went to your blog this morning after reading your wonderful article about Julia Vaconsin in the latest Interweave Crochet Magazine. Now I want to express my deepest sympathies on the loss of your magnificent Emma. I'm so sorry. ~ Mary Shooshan
