Our sweet friend, Bo from Blinks 'N Winks from Brown-eyes did just that a little over a year ago. We were all shocked when Bo made an abrupt exit from Blogland....we have missed her....but she is so very thankful that she heard God's voice and listened. The real gift in listening...was more precious time with her love.....Sonny.
It is with a heavy heart that I let you know that this past week, on Thursday morning, Bo discovered her wonderful husband of 41 years passed away in his sleep, leaving her and this life. It was a shock, he was doing well....no warning.
Many of Bo's friends I know share in this great loss and sadness with Bo and if you would, remember Bo in your prayers during this difficult time.
Bo's husband, Sonny was one of the sweetest souls I have had the pleasure to meet. He welcomed my husband and I into their home and we felt instantly we had known him forever. A avid gardener and what a thrill it was for him to share his love of gardening with me on a tour of his yard. I will never see an azalea plant blooming that I won't think of Sonny from now on. This world will miss "Sunny" he was like a ray of sunshine.
If you would like to send a card or note to Bo, you can mail it directly to me and I will get them to her, as I am not sure I should put her address online....I hope Bo does not mind me sharing this sad news with you all today, I know you love Bo as much as I do and want to be able to pray for her and let her know you care.
The lesson is simple....said by Bo herself....."it is only a reminder to treasure every moment that you two share on this earth" .....because you just never know.
