Mistakes, Regrets and Blessings

Where to start?

I moved to Cyprus in May to start a better life, 6 months in and it turns out to be my biggest mistake. 😦

Too much has gone on but in a nutshell. Loui didn’t fare well with the flight, he was traumatised by it and it took him nearly two months to get over it., we had a heatwave not seen in 30yrs that killed two people. My feet and legs swelled for two months and I couldn’t walk. I witnessed a man burn in a house fire, he died a week later. Finding part time work here is impossible. I started fostering kittens for a charity in July and that’s been a journey in itself. Will try blog about that another time.  I’ve been ripped off several times and my family have not bothered to visit me at all.

Then the final straw was when my Loui got run over and has ended up paralysed. 😢

You can read the details here and there is a link at the bottom on there to a FB page for him where I update on his progress.

Blessings

You might be wondering how in all of this can u find anything to be grateful for?

I have met some amazing people along the way, without them, I could have never got through any of it.

The outpouring of help and support with Loui has been astounding. My friends in the UK have all contributed to Louis vet bills and check up on me most days to see how I am coping. People who I’ve only known as a name on FB have been so supportive too, not just financially but more importantly  (to me) with their prayers, positive words, advice and love.

To say I’m grateful doesn’t even cover it. Since being here I’ve been thrust into a deeper solitude than I had in UK because here I don’t have the beautiful countryside around me where we went daily to connect with nature and my many spirit allies there.

When you feel all alone and all these wonderful souls reach out to you, you realise that when you hit rock bottom there are people out there to break your fall.

That there are still genuinely caring people left on the world. It gives me hope, not just for me and my situation but for the human race as a whole.

Now my dilemma is do I stay or do I go?

Once Loui is healed I will decide but for now I’m just trying to get by each day as it comes.

Please hold us in your thoughts and hold the vision of Loui walking and healthy again.

Thank you. ❤

Puppy Love

Looking for some pics to share with a friend today and found this pic of Loui that I stole from the advert where I first saw and fell in love with him.

I was looking for a Husky pup, when this little face popped up and I instantly fell in love. Rang the guy at 11pm!!

My friend Lea and I went to pick him up from Lancashire and was greeted by a psycho dog, running round in circles, lunging at my face and biting my nose.

 With heavy heart I said I couldnt take him, as I really needed a companion but when his owner told us that he had been re-homed three times already and they brought him back,  I had to take him. My heart broke for him and his crazy ways.  

He was 8months old when I got him and from being a puppy had spent 8-10hrs a day locked in the kitchen while his owners were at work. Hence his separation anxiety and high stress levels.

Its been a long road with him this past 5yrs, however, he has turned into a beautiful soul.  He still has ‘issues’ but then dont we humans too?

After my Jasper went, I didnt think I would ever bond with another dog like that. But Loui is my saviour, if it werent for him id probably still be completely crippled and totally disconnected from my beloved Gaia.

Not sure who rescued who that day but we were meant to find each other ❤

Giant Hog Weed growing from the bank by the Canal.  These are very poisonous, so if you see one DO NOT touch it.  They grow over 6ft tall and tower over their 4-5 ft relatives.

Watching these plants made me see the beauty inside even the most feared, that they hold lightness, and it reaffirmed to me that ALL life is Sacred!

They made me smile and feel joyous inside as they waved their arm in the air, ‘like they just don’t care’.  Dancing and rejoicing this thing called life, their fall from grace as winter strips them of their bounty, yet still rejoicing as they dance with their relatives in the waters of life.

Arms stretched high, caressing the wind as she carries their song to up to creator.  While they bounce along to the rhythm of their beat, connected to our mother and to father sun.

What a beautiful sight it was to see, we stood and watched for a good while before heading on our way, with a little song in my heart and a new beat in my feet.


Many Blessings
