I lay awake last night at a stupid hour thinking about my Daddy. I was also thinking about my friend Christiaan. And the paws of pup pals passed. About all of the guardian angels I have looking after me.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m really glad for their guidance and protection. I like knowing they are around me all the time.
Today though, more than a lot of other days of late, I would like even more if their arms were around me. Or I could bury my face in their fur and breathe in their paws.
As happens so often when you are thinking about something, an article came up on my social media feed about grief lasting a lifetime.
That has definitely been my experience to date. Some days the grief is like a gentle lapping of waves on the shore and other days it is more like a tsunami.
The trouble is, there is no tsunami warning system for grief.
I’m sending a huge virtual cuddle to anyone who is missing someone today. Whether those angels have two legs or four. I wish you enough to get through your day.
