Life ~

We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, 
charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that
 we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open...

Yesterday was one of those days you did not want to end.  It was 
perfect, showing you exactly what it is everyone talks about when they 
say how great the weather is in Missouri.  If we can have repeats
 of today everyday, this would be close to heaven.

I come home and all I want to do is sit outside and enjoy
 the weather.  I never really do this in Florida, not because we do not 
have some great weather and beautiful days, but here it's just 
so peaceful and quiet.  I do enjoy these moments.

While Sniff sleeps soundly, Arvid is busy doing what Arvid does, 
I enjoy a few alone moments with myself.  Lately I have been thinking 
very much of Brutus.  It always breaks my heart and makes me want 
even more alone time.  Sniff is never ignored.  He is a joy and all love,
 but my heart and my soul were ripped apart the day Brutus died.

When Shadow comes into the picture I block it. 
 As much as I can.  I still can't deal with it, and every time I think 
of the dryer back in our apartment in Florida I have a minor panic attack.
  I want to throw it away and never see it again, but we didn't.

Yesterday my friend's kitty of 13 years died.  Her Pete is no 
longer with her.  Heartbroken is mild to express what one goes 
through. You see our fur babies are more than pets. They are our perfect companions and they never have fewer than four feet.

Wishing everyone a good day.  Sometimes life dishes out more 
than you think you can handle, but then you prove to life and to 
everyone that there is no such thing as "more than you can handle."  
Sometimes I just wish life was a bit more fair to all of us.

Sometimes losing a pet is more painful than losing a human because
 in the case of the pet, you were not pretending to love it...
