You guys are the best.
I was so afraid to write about Bear and what’s going on and you all were right there for me. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for your kind words and support. I feel a giant virtual hug from all corners of the world. THANK YOU.
One thing I have definitely learned is that sometimes you just have to be sad. That’s not something I’ve ever been good at recognizing (always look on the bright side of life!), but it’s part of life. The other night, Bear had had a major accident (like, all over the house) right before dinner. I got the kids settled at the table for dinner, cleaned up the mess, then sat down at the table and started bawling. I lost it.
I apologized to the kids; I didn’t want them to see me in this state. But instead of being completely freaked out by my losing it, they yelled, “GROUP HUG!” and embraced me as tightly as they could.
Today, I’m feeling the group hug from all of you. Thank you for that. I can’t express how much I truly, deeply appreciate it.
Thank you, too, for sharing your stories of loss and of dealing with old dogs and pets. It does help to know I’m not alone in going through this with Bear and our family.
Y’all are simply the best. Thank you. Big love to all of you. xoxo
