Our darling little Gypsy passed over the Rainbow Bridge today. I am pretty sure that right about now she is letting all the others there know that The Queen Has Arrived =^..^=
We are at such a loss. She was with us for 18 and a half years and filled such a huge place in our lives. She felt it her duty to keep me company, no matter what I was doing. Always a faithful companion and ready at a moment's notice for a snuggle in my lap.
There are so many things I'm sure I will not know how to do alone now..... drinking my tea in the quiet time with the Lord each morning with Gypsy in my lap.... winding down at the end of the day, watching a favorite show on TV with Gypsy in my lap.... watching the Panthers play football on Sunday afternoons with Gypsy at my side as I stitched.... she was even an excellent traveler!
I think the hardest thing for me will be when the Spring finally arrives. She and I are always so excited to be able to get outside again. We sit on the side porch in the early morning hours and welcome the warmth, grateful for the passing of winter and our enforced captivity inside. I sip my tea and talk with the Lord, she sits beside me and listens, ever watchful for birds and intruder neighborhood cats, sniffing the air in appreciation. We sit in companionable silence and watch the world come alive. I'm sure I will have no idea how to do that alone this year.....
She may have loved my stash almost as much as I do!!!
I am glad our sweet girl is no longer in pain or suffering, but we miss her terribly.....
Hugs & Blessings!
