El Camino de “Angel Puppy”

Bling Bling is her name

Bling, Bling arrived in my life,

June 26, 2022

Her birthday is

April 27, 2022

She was 8 weeks old

when I picked her up

in Quarryville, PA

at 5:00 am

and we traveled 20 hours

together to Florida in

her doggy car seat.

What an Adventure!!!

Pawfect in every way…

A Bundle of unconditional Love

A Social Magnet

Bling Bling

loves the beach

she runs up to those on the beach

who need a dose of love…

So why would I want to get a puppy?

I am 71 years old and if Bling Bling lives to be 18,

I would be 89 years old…

When I shared with someone that I was thinking of getting a dog,

this person wagged her tongue and said the following,

“How foolish for you to get a puppy at your age,

Your dog will out live you”

I have news for her and everyone else,

I plan on staying healthy and

living until at least 100.

My aunt Mary lived to 103

To sit around and wait to die is crazy…

Spiritual Lesson: Life and death is in the power of our words. Think before you speak.

I have been in a deep depression and wallowing in self-pity because I am getting older and I am alone and praying that maybe I will meet a good, decent man to share the rest of my life with… So far, the right man has not arrived.

Her negative words discouraging me from getting a puppy were piercing like this quote says. Thank God I did not listen to her…

Another wise person entered my path and encouraged me to follow my heart. I am so glad I did…

I did try several times and met some crazy people, however, I just need to keep trying…

This is me…I am a little too scared to reach out and try to meet someone. Sometimes it appears better to isolate than take a risk of rejection or come face to face with crazies.

I have a high standard which I am not willing to lower just for the sake of companionship…

This is going to have to be a God pick…

Until that time, I just need to accept being alone and make the best of it…

I am so happy for those of you that have found

the love of your life

and close friends who care about you

and check up on you.

When I started my recovery journey

September 9, 1989

I met several people who came along side of me

and nurtured me

and loved me

until I could love myself.

Thirty three years later most all of these

people have passed on and are hopefully waiting for me

in heaven…

Others have pulled away because of other life issues and do not take time to call or visit…

Others are on mood-altering substances, which are given out like candy to senior citizens…

How do I start over again and make new friends?

So what role does this puppy play in my spiritual life?

I have come to realize after being with my puppy for several weeks

that I had closed off my ability to love

and closed the door on allowing others to care about me.

This unconditional love of Bling, Bling

is opening up my heart of Love…again…

Her unconditional puppy love is slowly bringing me out of my depression. I am realizing that I need to accept those gifts of love in the past and let them go and open up the door of my spirit and heart to the possibility of new friendships and possibility of a new loving relationship. My heart’s desire needs to be refueled…

I got upset when several of my girlfriends confronted me with the fact that their husbands will not allow me to bring my puppy with me into their home, even if I had her in a cage.

Now, this is unique to me because if I come to PA again,

I will have to bring my puppy.

That means I will not be able to visit them…

At first I got very angry…

All my issues of the past

in regards to a husband who would act the same way…

take a stand on an issue and have the final word.

I got so angry that my friends did not have the courage

to take a stand and

just allow their husbands have the final say.

I have to forgive them and move on…

I will not have a relationship with someone again

who does not care about what makes me happy.

I walked the beach for hours and not one person spoke to me

When I am walking with Bling Bling,

people stop and smile and pet her

They smile at her name

They smile as they pet her

They sometimes start up a conversation

I have met several women which I plan to go to lunch with

and maybe stop at some second hand shops…

Life is looking up

I walk about 2 miles in the morning and 2 miles in the evening

on the beach and in the water with Bling Bling

It is hard to take pictures but I will try to get some.

I am slowing breaking free of the depression and sadness.

Bling Bling is really my camino angel puppy…

She is such a blessing in my life…

If any of you have a room that I can stay in with my puppy

when I come to PA again,

please let me know…

Best thing I ever did was get this bundle of

unconditional love.

Happy, Joyous and Free. Enjoying life and retirement. Oct 5, 202, I completed the FEl Camino de Santiago de Frances, over 550 miles, beginning August 15, 2021 in St-Jean-Pied-De-Port, France and ending in Santiago and walked through the Holy Door. I am 70 year young. Read about some of my adventures. I have a close relationship with my Higher Power, whom I choose to call God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Spiritual growth and enlightenment are my priorities in life. Please jump on the spiritual soul train with me as I walk and try to practice a spiritual way of life. Esther Mae

  1. My dear dear darling friend and sister šŸ˜˜

    Please know that you and Bling -Bling are most certainly welcome in my home to stay for as long as you want. You will have the downstairs to come and go freely and the upstairs to cook and join my family. Jim is on board; he didnā€™t blink an eye. We are preparing your bedroom now. Picking out a light color of paint this weekend. God is good and loves us so! Much love and Godā€™s joy be with you,
