Thank you all so very much for your kind thoughts and words about our loss of Benson. I am still rather overwhelmed with it and am coping with it far less well than I ever would have expected.
I can't bear to look at his picture yet, but seeing his sister dog was OK was a help. She isn't herself, but she wasn't as distraught as I feared she might be so that is good.
Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you and I felt the need, or want, to blog, but I don't really have anything to say. I thought that if I sat at the computer and started to write something might come, but it isn't. So I will go and get on with some work. Thank goodness for work. I have done quite a bit of working over the last few days to keep myself occupied.
I just went to see if I could find a quote from one of the Rosamunde Pilcher books about being worried and polishing the silver, because at the end of the day, you are still worried, but the silver is clean.
I have been like that. Still upset, but at least I have got some work done. Couldn't find that quote/excerpt, but I did find this quote though.
“It was good, and nothing good is truly lost. It stays part of a person, becomes part of their character. So part of you goes everywhere with me. And part of me is yours, forever”
― Rosamunde Pilcher,
It has bought the greatest lump to my throat and I am holding back the tears, but it says it all.
Sorry about this. I just had to write it and share it. I will try blogging again in a few days. In the meantime, I will keep on working and I will see if I can find that excerpt from the book.
No podcast this week, I don't think I can face it and I don't think you would want to look at me either. We will save each other from that.
Thank you all again so very very much. I cannot say what your kindness means, only that it means so very much and touches my heart greatly.
See you all again soon. I hope that all is well with you.
