Farewell to a Friend Hello to a New One

No goodbyes, just farewell., still it's sad to think that in a friend would be gone for certain amount of distance away from Tucson Az, to California for a year or so.


One of the joys of being a Filipino is the ability to start a friendship in a very short amount of time. I guess we they got it from deep familiarity of family ties. Cyren (the girl beside me) was my very first close friend when I moved here in Tucson. I first met her at Copper Mountain Church 2 weeks after we just moved. I found out we were living in the same apartment complex, which was a tremendous blessing.

They are such a lovely couple!
She now leaves to California to live with her sister and work as a nurse while her hubby goes to Afghanistan for deployment as an aircraft mechanic for the military. We will miss them immensely.


 One friend goes, but another one comes. We came home with a gift after my friend Cyren's farewell party. Our other friend needed to find a home for this cute little bundle of joy. She asked us if we would like to keep him. Her husband is blind and suffering from illness, one of them is dementia. She couldn't keep up with her chores.
This dog has taken over my computer. Oh cmon!! Make your own facebook account! Geez!

We decided to keep him since we have been looking for a dog suitable for hubby's health concerns and also as a form of charity for our friend. This way, she could see him anytime she wants.


 He is a lovable dog, smart and sweet. Only a minimal training was needed.

  2. Good Evening Myric Sweetie...
    Oh what a beautiful share this evening. I am so tickled to
    see your friends. Sorry to hear they are moving, but they
    will never be far from your heart. That is what is most lovely
    about memories, we carry them forever and nobody can take them
    away.

    Your new fur baby is just gorgeous. He will be such great company
    for you. How nice that your friend can still visit him and you
    can see that he gets the proper care and attention. What a beautiful
    act of love.

    Thank you for sharing sweet one. I so enjoyed my visit this evening.
    I hope you have a glorious weekend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
