Roller's Phiosophical Friday: Memories

Memories are funny old things.  They can be good and bad all at once.  FH and I have been sharing memories of those that we are no longer lucky enough to have here present in our lives, we must make do with memories.  Those memories are what makes loss hard but manageable, such contradictions?

Every year about this time we spare thoughts for those we have lost and one very special person in particular.  That person will never leave our hearts for he will always be remembered. 
 
Everyone loses someone that is dear to them and we send you our thoughts too, we understand the pain of loss.  No words can heal of this we are sure but ask FH and she'll share with you the secret to heal a sad heart. 

Walk in to nature, look in to the sky, sit and reflect with a memory or two and let my Muleteers lend some healing care to you.  Roller sends his snuffles, a soft muzzle to blow dry your tears. 


Next will be The Mini who will place his furry head on your shoulder for a scratch before he lets a neighbray out and makes your smile come out!


Then there will be Dragon goofing at her best, watch her kick up those heels and gallop, that's what this girl does best, but then she'll stop and stare and give you 'the ears,' maybe a head rub and silence is more her style today. 

 
And finally there'll be kitty, that mighty Queen she is, full of purrs and head butts and ample heaps of love!


Hope your weekend is full of happy memories!
 
You will never be forgotten, not even for a day, for in my heart and mind, forever you will stay.

  3. Darling Roller, what a lovely philosophical thought and very timely - my father passed away on 11 September 2009 so I have been thinking about him even more than usual this week. The passage of time helps to diminish the acute pain of loss but, as you say, the memories remain. I could not agree more that engagement with nature and a cuddle with a furry friend really helps! We are visiting Hillside Sanctuary in West Runton, Norfolk this weekend and I am looking forward to lots of cuddles. I wish that I could cuddle you and all the Muleteers too!!
    Sending you cuddles through the air
    Lots of love and kisses, Judy in Cambridge

    1. Dear Judy, We hope you enjoy your visit to Hillside, we have heard it is a magical place and certainly a good place for a cuddle or two to balance any sadness. We send our thanks for the cuddles, they were delivered immediately by a very willing FH!

      We send you snuffles and cuddles and a wish for reminiscing with happy memories.

      Love The Muleteers xxxx

  4. My darling Roller, you made me teary. So true, Nature brings respite. I look at the sky, the clouds, the moon. I look at the earth, the ant trail, the flowers, the fallen leaves. A Hummingbird brushes my head, Dragonfly pauses on my foot, Blue Heron flies above. Coyote passes nearby and Owl hoots a crepuscular song. I add to these all your lovely cuddles, eau de pony, velvety muzzles and knowing eyes and this is what comforts my bereaved heart.

    Love you all, my precious friends.

    2. Our Dearest Carmen, we are sorry to bring tears and hope that we also evoked some wonderful memories, we understand how painful they can still be. Spending time in nature is the best way to help heal although we know there is pain that will never truly leave... beauty and gentleness may take it farther away for a while at least. We send snuffles, eau de pony and gentle nudges to you our dear friend and a wish for happy memories to bring a smile to your face this day.

      With Love - Your Muleteers xxxx

      p.s. Our FH sends you hugs back too, she truly appreciated your words.
