“You are led through your lifetime by the inner learning creature, the playful spiritual being that is your real self.
Don't turn away from possible futures before you're certain you don't have anything to learn from them.”

Ch, ch, ch, changes . . .

Well, it seems like here in Wisconsin we skipped over spring and went straight into summer. The temperatures have been in the high 70s and low 80s. It is so nice to wake up in the morning to the sound of birds singing!

On a sad note, our dog Shelby was diagnosed with bladder cancer back in September and he has progressively been getting worse. So we made the difficult and heartbreaking decision to let him go. I can't tell you how much my heart aches . . . if you've ever been in this situation you know all too well the pain and heartache of having made such a decision. I am most grateful to my friend Marsha for suggesting a veterinarian that came to our home. Shelby was able to pass over in the peace and comfort of his own home. As difficult as it was, it was also peaceful and I know we did the best we could for him. I'll always miss his physical presence, but I feel he is still with me in spirit. He is now with our Teddy over the Rainbow Bridge having a ball! Rest in Peace, beloved and loyal friend and companion.

I started my Volunteer position with Agrace HospiceCare last week and have been assigned to two lovely people. Although I've only had a few visits, I have to say that I'm looking forward to my visits next week and in the weeks to follow. And I learned how to play Kings in the Corners! What fun!

And lastly, I'm moving my Reiki practice, Loving Heart Reiki, LLC, from the Harbor Wellness Center to a new space in Madison above the Duncan Edward salon. In order to provide a more relaxing, tranquil and peaceful experience for my clients, I feel this move is necessary and I'm looking forward to the change.

So, it's been a heartbreaking, life changing, moving forward kind of month, but this I know for sure, time heals and change happens . . .

Oh Dear Tereza, my heart aches for you ... there are no words for the pain of losing such a loving family member ... I don't know why the Goddess gives them such short lives ... I wish they could be hear all though the years we are here. It's so nice to see your a Hospice volunteer. Believe me it makes such a difference ... we've had three family members on hospice and it was so comforting.

Happiness and Comfort to you.

I am so sorry to know you are hurting - I know about giving a loved companion back to God. You are brave and You are a super blessing. My heart sends you hugs.

I know that sounds trite and shallow, it is not meant that way . . It is meant with all the healing compassion I can offer . . my heart resonates with yours . .

Love & Love, Healing to Your Heart,-g-

Hi Tereza,
I feel I have to send love your way. It's so heartbreaking when we realise it's time to let a beloved pet go, but they live on in our hearts forever.
Your blog always inspires me; I hope you'll soon be able to remember your beloved pet with happiness rather than tears.

Oh Tereza, my heart goes out to you. Your dear Shelby. It was time, and you were so loving to help along the process, and in your home too! That is so wonderful. May Shelby and Teddy have plenty of good fun!
