I’ve really been missing this little guy lately. Over the weekend I had a dream that he was still with us. He was still sick, but wrapped in my arms and what Joy it was to feel his weight against me. I think daughter detected my missing him and has been sleeping with a stuff Boston Terrier since we returned.
Then I came across this quote from the always amazing Anne Lamott:
“You will lose someone you can’t live without,and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly—that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp.”
― Anne Lamott
She is so completely, totally right.
