Lucy has been gone over a week and I still cry. Not as much, but I do. I walked in the house a few days ago and put the trash can on the table so Lucy would not get it. I woke up from my nap listening for her barking as she could always tell I was awake. I really miss her. Lucy was spoiled.
I am not sure but I think when you are human childless, you build up this love and you just want to share it. That's probably why I adore my nieces and nephews and why I loved my Lucy. Lucy got a new boney (bone) every time I went to the store. She loved doggie day care and had some cool friends there. She loved it when you put a blanket on you and she would jump on it. I loved her ears and if you scratched them the right way, she would make this funny noise
This is not a Lucy blog but more of my random thoughts. Lucy was our friend. Do you know sometimes when you hear the same thing over and over and over and then there is one time you hear it differently? Well I have been hearing and studying the fact that happiness is based on circumstances and that joy goes much deeper than that. I am not going to allow circumstances steal my joy. Lots of things I do not like will happen in my life. But I have to have faith that God knows the whole picture and what I am not seeing is that it will all work out in the end. I am sure of this. Lots of sad stuff has been going on. Lots of things are stressing me out. If you know me, then you know I am a bit paranoid and I worry about everything. But my God gives me a sense of peace that truly can only come from him and my joy is pretty deep.
I am starting to think that Lucy was placed in our lives so I could shower her with love as we wait for LynnMarie to come home. I am thankful we had her for almost 2 and half years. She definitely has a permanent place in my heart.
Thanks to Tymm and Laura and Don and Be for the encouraging cards and to all my blogging friends who sent emails. We both appreciate them and are thankful to know others know how we felt.
