Today I am F-I-V-E!!!
May’s comment: Every year when I celebrate Darcy’s birthday, I do clock in my head she’s a year closer to leaving me – but I stop myself from wallowing in such a sad thought!!! Their shorter lives than ours is a part of the contract of owning a pet. So acceptance of the fact and living in the moment can only make the most of it!!! Let not one second be lost in celebrating not her birthday but her and our being together! SAVOUR every moment and give THANKS for what we have been blessed with.
Someday the inevitable will happen. Till death us do part, as they say. But whoever goes first (you never know!), she has taught me, made a better person out of me. And the love we have for each other lives on – when the body gives up.
They say people don’t change. Well, I sure did! Maybe it’s called “changing” but I think there’s a lot of goodness in us that dogs bring out.
A friend shared this with me the other day …
