      I love it!!!! :)  It's amazing and VERY meaningful.  And I've a soft spot for purple.  It's my favorite color.

    3. Hope of Morning

      Hope of Morning

      Mine too!    Not totally sure about the font. What do you think?

    4. Capulet

      Capulet

      Hmmm.  Personally, I like it.  But if you're not so sure about the font, you can always have the word written in different fonts and see if any of the others 'pop' better.  The butterfly though, you should definitely keep.  It's beautifully drawn!

  3. It's pretty amazing how even after so much elapsed time, things STILL remain ingrained into you.  

    Blog forthcoming, soon as I can figure out how to best explain today's epiphany. :blink:

      Hugs are ok BLT :hug: thank u I appreciate them, having a crappy time right now.

    4. Capulet

      Capulet

      @LuthienTinuviel - hugs always welcome!  And I hope so, too...  

      It just seems that so many of us are struggling in so many different ways right now - this highly optimistic, yet powerful statement, I believe, is safe to hold onto as we all work at figuring out what's next for each of us.  :throb:  Hang in there, friend.

  5. Our boy has stopped eating and has showed that he is unable to continue the fight.  He has been a true warrior and has hung on for a month following losing function of his hind legs - and someone wise did say that extra time he gave us was truly a gift.  But - he's now telling us he is exhausted and we've had to make the most heartbreaking decision we've ever thought possible - our sweet Dexter will be making his way over the Rainbow Bridge tomorrow.  I am absolutely devastated.  Pocket riders appreciated for the next 24 hours as we prepare to say goodbye to the most lovable and faithful fur-baby we've ever had.

    He's such a good boy.  We're so in love.  😍

    He's making himself at home and keeping me covered in doggy kisses and lots of cuddles!  

    My heart is happy. ❤️

      Thank you, everyone.  It was a tough night without having to get up and check on him to make sure he's had some water/food and had gone to the bathroom, etc, something I've been doing relentlessly for the last month.  

      I miss him SO much, already.  

      Thanking you all for your love and support. :throb:

  9. It really was an accident...and let me add that if he was still mad about that EMPTY chair rolling over his tail....he definitely got me back with interest, because he clawed and bit my leg in ADDITION to splitting my charger into two!

      Hi @Kmkz, @Free2Fly, @MeBeMary, @Field8, @Hoping8 

      THANK YOU guys for your kind words and messages and for sitting with me last night.  

      I do NOT ask for help often. I'm not used to doing so.  In the past, I was taught and 'conditioned' to deal with my emotions and moods differently.  Whenever I feel these 'emotional overloads,' this (untrue) feeling of sharing being equivalent to showing weakness kicks in and I am usually quicker/more likely to suck it up and let it sit and fester instead.  But this is not happening anymore; part of my personal growth process is to (slowly) learn to allow others to be able to offer comfort, advice or support when needed.  More often than not, healing is a grueling uphill battle, and it's too easy to forget that there are others who are on that same hike.  Slowly, I am discovering the benefits of allowing others to stand behind me and give that encouraging push here and there - I WILL keep climbing and I WILL make it to the top of this hill, eventually.  

      I'd also like to shout out to a couple of others not listed here who also took the time out of their evening to reach out and talk to me.  You guys have NO idea how much it helped to know that you were there.  Thank you, too. :throb:

      I'm feeling a little less unsettled and more coherent today.  I did manage to sleep for a little while, too, so the headache has lessened although it's not completely gone, yet.  I'm going to respond to a couple of PMs, soak in the bath and will be back later. 

      Love,
      Cap

  11. Continued good vibes needed, please, for our cat, who has lost all function of his hind legs and is unable to walk.  Still, he is a fighter and has been surprising us day after day with his strength and will to keep going.  Although his prognosis is not good, he is calling all the shots, and he's not finished, yet.  He is looking especially handsome today, so both he and his Mama are accepting hugs and positivity!  :throb:

      I've an unlimited supply of hugs - it's amazing how much of a difference they can make for someone.  So - continuing to dish 'em out upon request - and yes, I'd LOVE some in return.  Thanks, all.  I'm so grateful for my AS family.

  19. Saturday's message:  It's OKAY!

    - to make mistakes
    - to have bad days
    - to be less than perfect
    - to do what's best for you
    - to be yourself

    Hoping everyone's having a good weekend.

    Love to you all!  :throb:

    3. Capulet

      Capulet

      YES, @snmls - I like that, too.  Hugs or 'wraps' are always better received when they're offered with a 'can I?' first. :)

  21. Normally I hate the rain.  It's gloomy, it's murky, it's depressing.  But today, I welcome it - it's given me a chance to reconnect with myself a little bit.  Not in a bad way, though.  It's just me, by myself, alone.  Without interruptions.  

    Let God cry today so  that I don't have to.

    Anyone else?

      Where's the thumbs-up button?  I guess we don't have one, here.  But yes, agreed - I needed some quiet, today!  Hope you are doing well, @pattyr.

      pattyr

      Thanks, @Capulet.  I am doing okay, taking some comfort in some food, and reading AS to feel not alone.  Not raining where I am, but kind of grey out, has a bit of that feeling.  I  hope you are doing well too.

    4. Capulet

      Capulet

      Yes.  I feel productive, I had the time today to do some writing that I'd been otherwise delaying and procrastinating on.  I also did my fair share of reading/connecting with others.  Keeps the mind busy.

      I feel good having done do.  Thank you for checking in. :) 

  22. All treats, no tricks!  If candy's not your thing, then consider your bag filled with lots of love, support and well wishes from me to you - Happy and safe Halloween to all. :)44896261_975134109362256_7955678904335728640_n.jpg

  24. Salem is here to say hello.  He is modeling one of my hand-made SAAM bands - yes, I did take it off after this picture was taken as it's not a 'regulation' collar, but here's our boy's contribution to the observance of Sexual Assault Awareness Month!  Teal is a nice color on him, isn't it?

      Thank you.  It is hard for me to see people post about relationships with their mothers on facebook when I have never had a good relationship with my mom.

      Thank you so much for posting this. I have such mixed feelings about this day. One because I do not have a great relationship with my mom and two because due to my abuse I may never have kids.
