Tears of joy and sadness

November 19, 2011

Last night, I finished my novella, 19,200 words with a tearful ending. (Tearful for me anyway.) The joy of typing “the end” put a smile on my face, and a copy is now printed and in my husband’s in box. He gets the first read, before the four authors get together to finalize any changes, then off it goes to the editor!

Now it’s back to either Mystical Connections or Passion’s Promise – or maybe both, one is in the polishing stage, the other only has seven chapters written … so depending on my mood each day, I can choose to create or edit! Sounds like the PLAN.

So, where do the tears of sadness come in? Our son had to put his 13 year-old Husky down. Fallon was the most beautiful red husky, with sweet, loving caramel eyes. She gave PAW endlessly, her sweet disposition making everyone who met her fall in love.

It was the right decision, her hips and health have declined since Feb., but we’ll all miss her terribly. There is a hole in our hearts that we have to say goodbye.

Rest in peace, Fallon. We loved you very much <3

The good part is we are there for each other, we can grieve together. We can hug as we share the wonderful memories of her. She’ll continue to live in our hearts.

Tears of joy, tears of sadness mingle into today … until next time,

Hugs, Christine

  1. Isn’t it amazing how animals can slip so deeply into our hearts? They never want a thing, love us for who we are and refuse see our flaws. Perfect friends if you ask me! I grieve with you. On the bright side . . . . Congrats on finishing up your novella! Bravo Christine! 🙂

  2. Thanks Lisa. It is bittersweet that they both happened on the same day. Fallon is now running around with all the other puppy-angels, maybe she even found Taco and Tequila to play with … 🙂

  3. Thanks V – Bittersweet, too, that I just sold Passion’s Race as Fallon was the inspiration for CJ Fallon … she’ll be remembered forever!
