You guys— honestly. I can’t thank you enough for your sweet comments, prayers, emails and phone calls today. You have been so gracious and loving, and Reason #2 so appreciates it all. [I sort of do, too!]
For those of you wondering, Bernie is fine and well and begins his anti-seizure medication tomorrow morning. He’s currently sleeping soundly on my feet, just where he belongs.
I don’t normally get personal here, but I really feel the need to share how blessed I was today. Although it wasn’t your typical birthday, between the emergency vet clinics, the pharmacies, the family vet and my annual dental check-up, I couldn’t help but feel as if this was a true birthday celebration. Nothing fancy, no parties or balloons. Just Husband and I driving around town trying to figure out what the next step is.
And isn’t that so fitting? Life is about the next steps, the ups and downs, and the in-betweens. Throw a few dentist appointments and a trip to the E.R. and you’ve got yourself a pretty well-lived life.
I can’t think of a better way to turn 25.
