One of the most touching things ever.

Good morning friends.  This post has been a while in the writing.  Today seemed the right time.  As many of you know I lost my precious puggle Keelie this past March. After her death it seemed my life went on a downhill spiral.  I received so many cards and emails from my blogger friends and truthfully it helped me through this time.  Several weeks ago I received a package in the mail.  I certainly was not expecting anything.  Of course I opened it right in the post office. (Yes I peek at presents under the tree also).  I broke down in tears.  Dee Dee from d design had drawn this incredible image of my Keelie and sent it to me.  You can look on my side bar to see other pictures of her.
I cannot recall anyone ever doing anything so kind and touching.  She sent a beautiful card as well and it took me a while to get the strength to read it.  When my niece arrived she noticed this incredible framed work of art on my nightstand and said Aunt Nette, who did this?  Keelie's eyes are just perfect.  I told her the story and pulled out the card.  We lay in bed together and she read the touching card to me. We lay there for hours crying and laughing with stories of loved ones that are so longer here with us. 
My dear friend DeeDee, thank you so much.  Your kindness and thoughtfulness shows through in every post you write.  This touching act will never be forgotten by me and my precious Keelie sits proudly on my nightstand.  I simply do not have the words to express the honor I feel to know a woman such as yourself.

Thank you everyone for reading my ramblings, I am humbled that so many would do the kind things that I have enjoyed over the past months.  And Dee Dee, love and blessings to you always.

  13. I never dreamed in my life that some of the best friends I will ever have will be people I will never meet in person. When my life hit the skids three years ago, and I felt like I was going to go insane...bloggers kept me strong. When I felt like I was alone, I was not because the blogging community held me up and lifted my spirits.
    That is a wonderful gift...she is a very thoughtful friend.
    I often think to myself...it is so wonderful to have the ability to reach out to others the way we do with our blogs...I know I have found inspiration and so much fellowship through my blog!
    thanks for your visit today, I have enjoyed mine to your blog too!

  15. Hi Jeanette,
    The drawing is absolutely beautiful! Having it must be a great comfort to you. I'm sorry for your loss, but very glad you have such loving, supportive friends in Blogland. You give what you get, and your warm, caring spirit obviously radiates to everyone who has the good fortune to know you.

    Warmest regards,

  16. My dear friend, I am so behind the times lately since my surgery in April that I have to apologize. I am so saddened by your loss of Keelie! And, we too, lost our beautiful Carrie sheltie at the end of June. Those beautiful dogs will be with us in spirit forever...but the loss is deep and terrible. Time does heal somewhat but it is difficult and sad. As you know we now have a sweet little sheltie puppy named Betsy Belle and she keeps us so busy we don't have time to think too much about our losses.
    Sending you love and friendship this evening, dear Jeanette.
