Waking up lonely

Okay, so that’s not technically true. I did wake up with two beautiful furry kids on my bed. Which is always lovely.

But this greeted me when I went into Bubba’s room:

waking up lonely

She had her first sleep over at her Aunty, Uncle and fuzzy cousin Barker’s house last night. And I slept like crap! I know she was safe and loved and sleeping soundly, but we weren’t under the same roof. Beary spent a lot of the night wondering where she was too. I couldn’t help but think again of those families in Connecticut waking up to empty beds this morning. It’s beyond awful.

I’m meeting my family in the city to look at the department store Christmas windows this morning – and I can’t wait to hold them close.

I try to perform one random act of kindness each day & think more people should learn a lesson in unconditional love & acceptance from our 4-legged furry friends. This is my journey to motherhood & beyond - single by chance, mother by choice.

    Oh, so sad. This so tugged my heart. I still miss my baby and she is away at college now. You will get used to her when she is not in the house, but… you will never really like it. I do not even want to imagine the unimaginable. Too many lives cut short. No, no, no, no, no. Sleep well in knowing that you will see your baby tomorrow. Hug her for all of us at DogDaz.

  3. I am sending you a big Bassa hug xx

  4. Enjoy all the lights and give Bubba an extra hug big today. It’s been a hard week.
