The village & sweet memories
Having lunch or dinner in my favorite village restaurant.. is always so relaxing. I have mentioned to you all before, that my dear friend Dita ownes it. There is always something going on and village news to have a little gossip about. I am off there again for lunch today. After lunch, when the restaurant is closed, we sit on the sofas with the cool breeze coming from the fan and the open windows and drink a refreshing iced tea, catching up on family news.
Sweet memories here.. Like the Australian aborigines.. once someone has passed they dont say their name ever again. Here is a photo of my dearest Bonita.. her back to the photo.. She went on a walk about. this monday. She always comes back.. she never wonders far. This time, she never came back. Its been very hard for me, to even think about her. I just cannot believe she is gone. My vet said, that sometimes, dogs do that when they want to die. I have prayed to our dear Lord, that he watches over her and that she has not suffered in anyway. She was my sweet loving rescue dog.. the house is empty.. her brothers know she is gone. I mention her name, and they look out the window.
The laws of nature, can be so cruel. I really thought that she would come back. She was going on for 9...as some of you will have read my post about her..she was cruelly treated by the hunters. She was blind in one eye and partially in the other. She is missed, and I loved her very much and she went without nothing. God bless her.
