Lots of Thank Yous!
I've started a hundred times to write a Thank You here and i've never been so paralyzed by the idea of "being at a loss for words" but I have been. There are so many thank yous i'd like to give, for most i'd like to be able to come there in person and give hugs, and i'm so afraid I won't have words to do them justice or I might forget some very special person or moment. Chances are, if you read this, I have something to thank you for
My last few months, dealing with Mollies diagnosis, illness and losing her, have been heart breaking. She was a very special girl to us all and not with us nearly long enough. But, without Pets.ca and all you wonderful people, i'm not sure we would have had such joy in the last few months we spend together and, really, i'm not sure I would have been able to keep a smile on my face for her. Now that she is gone, I know her memories live on with all of you and her life will always be remembered with a smile.
You have all given me the perfect words, the most wonderful advice, caring thoughts, and welcomed me like a life long friend even when i've not been contributing much.
OK... feel my arms reaching out and giving you a huge hug, now, smile, and sigh, knowing you have made more of a difference in a human's and a few doggies and kitties lives than you will ever be fully able to know .
I'm sure i've missed someone :sad:
I hadn't checked my mail much after Molly was gone (we used to walk to the mail together every Saturday) but when I did I couldn't believe what I almost missed there:
(the inscription on the back says "may Molly always be your shadow on the beach")
Now... HOW DO YOU SAY THANK YOU FOR THOSE?????
I think I need to get my road trip in order, to deliver a few hugs personally
