It Helps

It’s a little before 6 a.m. and I have been reading through the latest posts for about an hour, and posting a response or two.
Heart rending, and I’m not sure it’s the best start to a day, but right now here comes 42 kg of Rottweiler to tell me she’s going to help me through. If only I could train her to make me a cup of tea.

Morning Edwin, let's hope you, the Rottweiler and your other canine sweetheart, have a pleasant walk today, once the sun has risen. Oh for a cup of tea, lovingly prepared! It made such a good start to the day, kind regards, x

I've just made my morning cup of tea. But oh yes, what I wouldn't give to have it lovingly prepared and brought up to me with the words "morning darling". Damn it! I miss him...xx

I have a cat who has determinedly helped me through this

Ack, the board ate half my post. Aren't pets tremendous? I said that I call my kitty, Punkin, my little bereavement angel. She's been the saving grace of mornings that are otherwise very ordinary to wake up in. My Ken wasn't a fan of cats but I know he would be happy for me to have 19 if they make me happy. I have four; the average widow has six so I'm working my way up :)

Yes ,i have my dog,called Maggie,She was my husband's dog really,she was so well behaved for him,and he treat her like a queen,she listened to his every word,on the day he passed,she knew,she was acting very strangely for hours,my daughter said,i was at the hospital at the time.When i got back she had been sitting staring out the window and crying all that time. I am thankful i have her,she keeps me on my toes,and she is company x
