Moxy, July 2007_ 17th November 2020

 Late this afternoon we lost our darling Moxy, I found him lying by the side of our street. He  was probably hit by a car, no marks, and his little face looked like it always did.

Our home is so quiet, time will heal.


Meanwhile, I am well and thank you all so much for your words, emails, comments and inspiration to get me motivated again.

 I think the stent surgery  was really successful,  but I have taken longer to feel fit and confident to go walking again.

I have been doing some sewing, a Quilt Along with blocks featuring seaside scenes, and for all of you in USA, the  Around The Block, with each 6 inch block featuring something special from each state. This will take so many weeks, and  will no doubt get finished  well into next year. For each of these, the designers have given some outstanding and amazing designs,  The seaside blocks need to be assembled  by mid December,

Quotation for today, 

" Love unconditionally,  and  remember the  happiness of earlier days"

Greetings from Jean

So sorry to hear about Moxy. It sounds like his death was quick and at least he didn't have to suffer from the accident. Small consolation, I know. Jean, glad to know your operation was a success and your body needs only time to recover. Meanwhile, your craft is a perfect pastime and I'm looking forward to seeing a picture of your sea themed quilt when finished. A wise quote!

Hello Jean
I am sorry for the loss of Moxy. Sending my prayers and yes time will heal. I wish you well too, back to feeling normal again. The quilting is nice way to pass the time and seaside scenes sounds lovely. Take care and stay safe! Enjoy your day and the week ahead.

Jean, so sorry to hear about Moxy and love the quote. Our pets are part of the family and it will take time to come to terms with. At least it sounds as though it was quick. Pleased to hear that your are feeling better since the "op". Take care.

Oh Jean. I am so very sorry. It must have been heartbreaking to find him. I know how you loved him and gave him a wonderful life.

I am glad to hear that the stent surgery was a success. That is such good news.

So sorry about Moxy. It is hard to loose our fur babies, they really are a bit of sunshine in our lives. Its been fun to see you in the QAL by the Sea, I think the blocks were a lot of fun.

I'm so sorry to hear about Moxy, but I am glad you noticed him and were not left to wonder what had happened to him. I'm also thrilled to hear that the stent surgery has you feeling better and that you are walking and enjoying quilt alongs. Sending you love.

Dear Jean I'm so sorry to read that Moxy has crossed the Rainbow Bridge, you will miss him terribly, the loss of our little four legged family members is always hard to bear.
I had been wondering what was happening with you after our cut short 'phone conversation a while ago, I'll call you over the next day or so.

Glad to see you post again, hope your recovery continues to go well. So sorry about Moxie, it is so hard to lose our furkids, especially in a sudden way. Hugs to you.

I'm so sorry about your Moxy. It's so hard to lose a beloved furry friend. I'm glad you are doing well, even if it takes time to get back to completely normal. Maybe at our age, we have to settle for something a little bit less. I just get so tired easily and have a difficult time accepting that as a new normal, but I'm trying.

Inger said...

Not sure if my comment reached you. I hope so.

Oh no, I am so very sorry to hear about Moxy. Glad to hear the surgery has gone well, but take time to take care of yourself too. I've been seeing your lovely seaside blocks on IG!

Tanya said...

Oh no! I hate hearing news like this about our pet family members. He had a good life with you and I hope his last hours exploring were fun. Please don't be too sad and lonely. It is hard to lose someone we love.

Oh Jean, so sorry about your little Moxy. Always so sad when we lose a furry family member. We've all been there so knows just what it feels like.
Yes, recovery can take a while, you have to give yourself rest and some pampering too. But I'm glad to hear you are doing some stitching. Nothing soothes better than that. Hugs to you from me!
