...you know make something so you would never forget those special
pets who brought years of joy to your life.
As I was thinking of a new GINGHAM ( RBD) ottoman,
I could not think of any other colour but YELLOW...
It represents the warmth that came into our lives when we first brought
T-cup and Sumatra into our HOME and HEARTS.
I also kept thinking when we had to let Sumatra go far too soon, that
despite the weeks of caring for her, "I would do it all over again".
And then just a few short months later we had to let T-cup go...
and then again the "I" became "WE"
"for you, we would do it all over again"..
Gosh this time last year, Sumo and Monchat were not even born
yet, we were not even thinking of more pets...
And then suddenly before we were prepared ( and by the way
you are never prepared, never)
our lives changed....
David and T-cup were very close....it has been so hard for him..
My incredible macho guy, misses her dearly. I see tears in his eyes
when he tells me how working out every morning is just not the same
without T-cup joining him... She used to sit by the gym and watch him
till he was done...30 minutes every morning for years,
they had a morning DATE.
Funny thing for 2 weeks now , Sumo has been joining him every morning...
Somehow T-cup got a message to him to help him out a little...
I have noted how close they have become and that makes my heart smile!
Sumatra, well my sweet Sumatra, this day I shall never forget-
it was spring and I was sitting on the top step and she came over and just
looked at me and closed her eyes and just smiled...Glad that I was spending
time with her as she was enjoying the first of many days of warmth -she loved the garden...
I still miss her terribly... I really never thought I could love so much...
A big reason why I wanted to have something in our bedroom by the bed,
an ottoman that greets you from the door...a perfect stepping spot
for the Riot Boys as they join us every morning and night for play time...
And here we are a few months later and we have these RIOT BOYS...
total JOY, love, laughter and many smiles to erase many of the tears
that still stain our cheeks..
They were funny today, as I was finishing up the last of the stitches,
both of them wanted to try it out...
Of course being that they can be pretty dramatic, I asked them if they could
turn away as it they were filled with emotion!!!
Of course they obliged, they just kill me with laughter at times
they seem to know what I am saying....
Here is Sumo trying to find the perfect spot...his tail between his legs lol
And then Monchat wanted to play too....I am telling you they are so smart......lol
Presently, I am working on something else GINGHAM
a lilac piece actually...I sit here and view our home
and there is gingham everywhere, not too much
but accents of it....and HOME is a place where
we find warmth and comfort.....and GINGHAM somehow
brings me such comfort...
My they have changed....they were only 3-4 months old
next week, Sumo will be 11 months and Monchat 10 months old..
feels like they have been here forever..
Do hope you are enjoying your SUMMER and
you are stitching your passion and bringing it to LIFE!
