    Sheli- Learning to be present and living in the moment didn’t come naturally for me. I tend to worry and think ahead. Alex changed that. She’s in my heart now and forever. I know you feel the same about your precious Lexi. It’s a beautiful, open love- unconditional…

    Eliza- It’s so hard…. Everyone handles it differently. For me this was truly a turning point for me in learning to live in the present. I am by nature someone who worries ifI’m not looking and planning ahead. When it came to Alex I forced myself to stop. I spent as much time as possible with her. Put her in my lap and talked her. Wrote about her.
    Prayers and love to you and your family…
    Tossing Glitter!!! xoxo

    Pam- So happy you all came and were able to me Alex. When learning about about her illness Kelly was one of the first that I was able to tell. She told me I didn’t have to worry about it that day- Alex and I had time. Her words triggered my decision for living in the moment. Because of those months are crystal clear in my mind and alive in my heart. I’m grateful….

    Thank you for reading and supporting my Farm Stories. Love you…

So poignant. (I lost my 14 year old Shih-tzu last summer.). Beautiful expression. Your writing puts us right there. Keep it up.

OK – at least 75% of your stories make me cry. Maybe that’s because I can identify with the feelings. XOXO <3

    Linda- Perhaps because my father forbade me to cry? I embrace my tears almost as much as my laughter. It’s who I am… It’s who you are too. It’s who we all are if we allow.

Kleenex out and being used. I do feel your pain. Had my last baby until about 4 years ago for 13 years. Sammie, a 3.5lb., coal black, although at the end she was grey around her face, Pomeranian. I was divorced she was on my lap or by my side at all times. Her joints got so they would dislocate, even during the night, She would yelp and cry in pain. I would have to get up and massage them back into place. Then I noticed her eyes were getting more and more cloudy. She began running into things and falling….she had gone blind. I knew the time was near and she was suffering so bad but I couldn’t let go of my constant companion. Finally I called all the family and everyone of them came over at the same time to see her one last time. The Grandkids weren’t told that that was the last time they were going to see her…She had been with me longer than they had and loved her like their own…..but I know they knew. They would talk about her not acting like “She felt good anymore.” She didn’t and she looked so sad and in misery all the time. The next day I took her to the vet and held her while he sent her to the other side. I haven’t been able to get another one since, and probably won’t…I don’t think I can go thru the inevitable again. That was right before I lost Mom to compound the pain. She can’t be replaced with another companion, that was as good a companion as she was. No more than I can replace my precious Mother. I’m in no way comparing the loss of my precious Mama to an animal but I never had a pet that I was any closer to. I know you and Jeff loved Alex in the same way…..glad you were able to go on. I just don’t feel I can do it again, I have had so much lose in my life of ones I have loved, pets and human, I, at this time, don’t feel I can set myself up for another loss. The Grandkids still talk about her and not a day goes by that I don’t miss her…. like Mom. I know there truly is no comparison but she was so very special to not just me but our whole family. Thank you for sharing your story about your precious Alex. Great writing, such a sad story, almost all your stories I can relate to in one way or another. You are keeping the Kleenex corporation in business. It is a soothing thought of Alex and Sammie health and happy, chasing each other around doggie Heaven. I love you! XOXO <3

    Kathy- They are devoted through our good times and bad-Unconditional love. So much we learn through their devotion. Many can’t understand why we feel the way we do towards them and thats okay- because those of us who do understand are so very blessed to have known and experienced such open and beautiful love.

    Thank you Kathy for your support throughout my life and with my Farm Stories.
    Love you
    xoxo

Eddie, such a beautiful girl and a beautiful well written story. The tears are falling from my eyes as I remember your call telling me of her sickness. You were in such pain and heartache. There was nothing I could do or say to console you. When you write your story, it is like reliving it again.In my eyes mind I can see it happening all over. What a great talent you have been given. Love you…Mom

Mom- Sadly it’s something we all have shared. I remember I had literally just hung up the phone when you called me- I was in such a state I probably would have never called anyone so was grateful when you did. God was looking out…
Thank you for reading and supporting Farm Stories…
Love you…
