Over the last few days, your tributes to Penny, and your
sweet words to me, have made me smile. Your overwhelming
support has meant so much to me. It is so good to know we can
lean on one another through the good, but also the bad.
These past few days have been very hard, yet my pain
eases each day, little by little.
I feel Penny is with me, and will continue to help me along
this process of grief. There is no explanation as to why are best
friends are taken from us. Whether they are old or young, it is
hard to understand. What we must remember, is that they were,
and are a gift, and we should be thankful for everyday
we had with them.
Penny went too soon, but she brought so much joy to all of us.
I would never have been the same without her, and I will not
be the same now that she is gone. But, I will carry on her
spirit, and her beefy sexiness for
as long as I live.
Penny was with me these past five years through so much,
and she brought me so much joy, even when I was feeling down.
Seeing your pugs pay tribute to Penny, especially
with the whipped cream, is helping me remember
the joy I felt when she was here. It lets me
know it is okay to smile, although my
sadness is great.
I was outside tonight, and saw a handful of shooting stars.
I think it was Penny and some of her new friends.
I know you will stick by me, even though Penny is no longer here.
I will continue to blog, although my writing will turn in
a new direction, as it is just me right now.
I know I will honor Penny by continuing to blog, and eventually
adopt a rescue dog. She would want me to give a wonderful
home to another fur child, just as I did for her.
When the time is right, I will know. And we will
embark on a whole new chapter together.
Until that time comes, I will continue
to read your words, and see what
you are up to.
