*:: JLB turns 10! ::*
Jennylovesbenny turns 10 this month!
The last couple of years has been a difficult time for me and my family and it's been a huge struggle to work on JLB...and almost a year after losing my beloved Walter, we lost Benny too. I've not been able to blog about it until now and yes, Benny is how "JennyLovesBenny" came about. :)
JLB was no longer a bright and happy place for me, instead it filled me with sorrow and pain. I've often felt it was time to say good bye and pack away my mohair but at the same time, I found it difficult to let go as for 8 years, it had given me such happiness and joy and plenty of memories with my beautiful furry babies.
Your lovely emails and letters also helped me to keep going, taking one day at a time with baby steps each step of the way and for that I'll like to say a BIG "THANK YOU" to you all for your amazing love and support!
Now, JLB is 10 this month and I can't believe my bear journey has lasted 10 years and WOW its been an awesome ride! :D
I hope JLB will always brighten your days and bring smiles and happiness to you. THANK YOU for your Likes on FB, for taking the time to read what I write and for your lovely emails and comments and most of all, again for your amazing support.
