Its busy here, as I try to get through each day, keeping on top of all that needs to be done, mothering, cooking, cleaning, college, exams, working and sewing. My sewing machine has not been put in its case since our return from the beach, the cooker seems to be permanently on and slowly the house is starting to get sorted, all to the rhythm of the washing machine.Is there finally light at the end of the tunnel, to the array of disasters that have fallen at my feet OR have I just started to be able to deal with it better?
I am thankful to my eldest son who had a talk with me, one that would make the heart strings of any mother feel a little tug. He had a bad day, so did I, it was just me and him on the sofa with a drink and cookie, 'Mom' he said and continued to say - your sad, your stressed, Mom I am sad, so sad... we made a pact together, we would help each other out and we made a plan, part of that plan has been simmering for over two years, when Dad left the boys begged me for a puppy, it was hard to say no to them, however we talked, researched and planned. Now the plan has been put into action...
Introducing to you the new Dotty Red family member. The funniest, cuddliest, happiest little pup I have ever had the pleasure to meet, this is ROSY! Within days Rosy has settled in and it already feels like we have always had her. She is indeed a bundle of joy and an absolute tonic to my little family. She is the responsibility of the children and already they are doing their puppy duties well and I am so proud of them.
Rosy is a confidence building, family restoring and trying to make things better pup, its a lot to put on such a little creature. However Rosy by name Rosy by nature, she is bringing a ray of light into my children's lives that I have seen fade at times.
I know this bundle of joy won't replace the loss they feel in their hearts, the change of lifestyle won't go back to weekends by the beach in our pad by the sea and exciting adventures in their camper van, but she offers new plans, a new way of living and a whole lot of cuddles and smiles.
Welcome dear Rosy to our family, I hope your heart will be filled with joy, your feet prancing with mischief and your eyes see the love that is within these walls and that you will always feel a part of it.
