Quick Update

As many of you know Pumpkin finally lost his battle with his illness and left my side on April 20th.
I will always miss him and there is a huge empty place in my heart since that day! Till we meet again little buddy!

Then on May 3rd I had a terrible car accident in which I miraculously was unscathed but the other person involved died at the hospital. It was a horrible experience and I thank the Lord that the memory of that day is fading.

Although the car is drivable the cost to repair the frame and add two new doors is too costly for me so I had to buy another used car that seems so far to be running well (fingers crossed)!
I had always prided myself on my spotless driving record so being involved in a collision that resulted in a death kept me awake nights trying to reconstruct what had happened and was there any way I could have avoided the accident. But like so many things in life no matter how many times I questioned my memory I could not find any answers.

I hope life has been quieter for all of you?

I would be remiss if I didn't mention 2 ladies who lifted me from this dark place.
Many thank yous to Angela @
for the beautiful scriptures you sent to me, it lifted my heart dear friend!

And to Maggie@
who wrote me a lovely and heartfelt  email that meant a lot to me!

So many wonderful people are on Blogger and I am grateful each day to have met you all, you have become so dear to me!

So here's to a better tomorrow and happier times this summer. I look forward to celebrating some of the good times this year with you all!

Love always

  1. Ooh dear Tina, I am saddened to read of both of these events, and the heartache it has caused you.
    Little Pumpkin was so sweet, I know only too well, how it leaves an empty spot in your heart.

    It was tragic that the other driver passed away in the wreck, how horrendous for you. I hope that as the days pass, those memories will be easier to cope with.
    Hugs to you,

  2. Tina, i am so glad you weren't injured in the accident, and sad that the other driver passed away.It must have been an awful time for you.
    It is heart-breaking when a beloved furry family member leaves us, but I'm sure your sweet Pumpkin had a happy life with you. Hugs and blessings

  3. Tina,
    I'm stunned and so grateful that you are ok. What a horrible experience you have come through, my friend. There are no words for what you went through and for what you are dealing with.

    I am sending you my best wishes that these losses will fade a bit so you may deal with them better. Please know I am thinking of you and if you need a chat, I'm here.

    Much love and concern,

  4. I'm so sorry. We are thinking of you.


  5. Oh Tina, I've missed your blog and wish I'd stopped by earlier. I am so, so sorry about the loss of your precious Pumpkin. I so hope that you are finding comfort in your memories that can never be taken away and in knowing you will see him again some day.

    I am sending my prayers that you are able to find peace in all that has been happening in your life. Please remember that there are those like me who care about you, and hope you find the comfort in knowing that you are being thought of. Take care my friend!!
