Last night I found Maggie curled up with what I thought was her bedtime story book but it turned out to be Mom's medical encyclopedia. I asked her what she was doing with that and she said she was a missing hearing from her friend, "puddles" and was starting to worry that she was just a figment of her imagination and we really didn't spend fun times with her nor pip. So she decided since puddles is a nurse to come up with some dreaded disease and post it so nurse puddles would come over and take care of her. She decided on scurvy cos she never eats green beans, or lots of fruit like I do. I think that is fitting. She hopes that nurse puddles reads about her illness.
On another note Mom and I was a talkin last night about friends and how they make the world go round. Since we started to blog it has opened up a big world of people who love all kinds of animals just like us, and people who understand our hearts cos their hearts are similar. When Sammer and Trudie went to live at the rainbow bridge friends left us heartfelt posts, and it helped us make it through our grief. In our everyday world about 3 people actually said anything to us, which was okay cos we have all of you guys. A friend isn't always a mirror imagine of you and they may handle things different from you, but they are still our friend. Helping a friend understand why they feel the way they do, is sometimes a challenge but its just part of our job. Sometimes you want to kick your friends to the curb, but if you do that you usually both end up throwing something very valuable to you away. Words sometimes get said out of context and words get said that hurt people. Friendship can be a lousy job sometimes, but someone has to do it AND you never know when you might a friend. Sometimes its easier not to ever have friends cos you don't have to deal with their problems, or issues, or griping or whining, ......but what a sad sad world we would live in if we always kept our heart closed cos it easier that way.
"Never leave a friend behind. Friends are all we have to get us through this
life--and they are the only things from this world that we could hope to see in
the next.” Dean Koontz
