Let's Make It A Good Day...

Don't forget that you are human.  It's OK to have a meltdown. Just don't 
unpack and live there.  Cry it out and then refocus on where you are headed...

It's a gloomy looking day here in Chicago.  I'm sure it's the start of fall. 

Even so, the city is always beautiful.  Today our usual walk is not looking so good.
Yesterday we also had a similar day, but even so we managed to get out just for a little.
Now I am starting to miss Florida.  I want to go home where Brutus and Shadow await.

Liliana still has Shadow's ashes.  I want to go and get them from her.  I have 
been thinking a lot about it lately and it's just a need to do right now thing.

Sniff is doing great.  He just like Brutus and Shadow did loves it anywhere we are.
I continue to pick him up a little everyday.  He is still no happy with it, but I am able to 
hold him just a bit longer every time.  One day I will be able to hold him hopefully
 often and for long periods like I did with Brutus.  Arvid stopped picking Sniff 
up from almost since we got him because Sniff just scratched to get away,
 but just the other day Arvid picked him up and I saw him smile.  
Was not for long, but maybe it's the start of more to come.

Wishing you all a good day.  Some days are better than others.  I know we all have 
them. I know one day everything is gonna be alright.  Just like Bob Marley said.

I'm a strong person, but every once in a while, I would like someone to 
take my hand and tell me that everything's going to be alright...
