|Me and the Mr. on a Cub Scout trip to San Francisco|
My posts have been few and far between, but I wanted to pop in here and say hello to all of you. I'm still here! I've been blessed with so many subbing jobs, and we've been keeping busy with Cub Scout activities, family gatherings, the regular day-to-day things, and some things that just break my heart.
On February 15, we had to put down our beloved cat of 19 years. Bear had been sick since right before Christmas, and just when I thought he was doing better, he took a turn for the worse. It was tough watching him struggle, and it was heartbreaking to even think about putting him down. He was having difficulty walking, in addition to being very underweight, dehydrated, and anemic. His body was basically shutting down. The vet said it was time to let him go, because he would only suffer and continue to get worse. :::sigh:::
It was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do, but I also felt peace in the decision. He had lived a good, long life. I'm so blessed that I was able to spend almost 20 years with this handsome guy. He will truly be missed.

I pray that you all have been doing well, and I look forward to getting some new blog posts here for you soon. Take care and be blessed! Hugs, Michelle
