Last day of April thoughts….Earth Day

How can you not love a lab?

This is how I felt in September of 2018.

With the addition of a new dog ‘in need’ that I firmly believe, Gerry sent to me..I don’t feel this way so much more.

I’m relieved.  Thank you, boy. ~ love, Mom

“It’s been a long year since you’ve been gone
I’ve been alone here, I’ve grown old
Fall to pieces, I’m falling
Fell to pieces and I’m still falling
Every time I’m falling down
All alone I fall to pieces….”     Velvet Revolver    (copy/cut/ paste for video)

About danielle

I am a rescue mom and school teacher. Gerry came to me from Texas, after he "failed" as a hunting dog. He had NOT had an easy life. I was three years divorced, and we saved each other. Last week I learned he has osteosarcoma. Our world feels upside down...while everyone else is right side up.

    I’m glad you’re “relieved”….that means the healing has begun. It doesn’t mean you love and miss Gerry any less. (I know you know this without me telling you). I felt guilty when we brought Grizzly into our lives – and I loved him – but I also felt I “shouldn’t” love him….I felt that I was letting go of Nitro, and I didn’t want to do that. Our boys are gone, but never forgotten, and we are lucky to have found a different love.

    Exactly! How can you not love a lab?! What a lovely, lovely picture of your sweetie.

    Grief has so many peaks and valleys. Personally, I’ve found beauty in the process. There’s a depth within myself that I never knew existed. If life is all about dancing in the rain, it doesn’t matter whether we’re tap dancing through the puddles or just rocking on the porch, just as long as we dance.

    (((hugs))). Soooooo gorgeous. You’re right, Labs are irresistible!

    Healing is such a confusing time. We try to fill the hole in our heart by bringing in another pup who needs our love, yet guilt strikes us at the most unexpected moments. It’s when we can manage those sudden bad days without falling to pieces that we know we are on the right path. You’ve made it, you are there. xoxo
