See Ya March!

March was quite a tumultuous month for the BIiss family.  I don't ever like to wish the time away as every day is a gift from God and time is so precious with each passing year, but I'd be lying if I said April couldn't have come soon enough this year.  Aside from losing our precious dog Chloe last weekend, we had more than our share of drama - family, school, health - of which I will spare you the gory details.  And on this first day of April, I'm celebrating.  I skipped the gym this morning and decided instead to throw open the windows, 

enjoy the fresh air, 

listen to the birds chirp,

 and sip some hot coffee while I get back to bloggy business.  

The pity party is over.  March is over.  Spring is in the air.

Thanks to each and every one of you for your kind and thoughtful words during this difficult week.  You are all SO special to me and SO important to me and your prayers and concern meant more to me than you will ever know.
God Bless You all!!!
Have a very, very Blessed Easter.  God is GOOD!!!

You made me think of the song/scripture (which I can't get out of my head now) "Morning by morning, new mercies I see"... Prayin' April will be absolutely glorious for ya.

Oh Kim..before I left your site (because I've been away from blogging for about 9 days) I discovered this entry. I'm sitting here crying like a ninnie. I'm so truly sorry for your loss.

We lost our 15 year old cocker spaniel last year, and I couldn't even speak for 3 whole days. I prayed and prayed and cried and cried.

Didn't mean to get so carried away. But I truly know how a heart aches when losing the special gifts our pets bring us.

This was such a beautiful tribute to sweet Chloe. The garden was such a splendid expression of love. We placed Azure (our babyboy) under our largest blooming pear tree in the back yard. It's so comforting knowing he's there.

I wish there were something more I could say to lessen your loss. But right now, I can't breath through all these tears.

Blessings to you sweet friend, and your entire family, Terri
