Extra Time

This is Digby Pancake.  If you had an extra hour today, what would you do with it?  What would you do with an extra hour if you could do anything?

What would I do with an extra hour of time?  I wouldn’t change a thing.  Not one thing.  I would want to live a normal day.

I would want to be with my family.  I would want to be me.  I would want to appreciate the every day moments.  And now, more than ever, I feel like I have extra time to do all the things.  All the ordinary, extraordinary things.

Yesterday was a hard day.  But not as hard as the last week and a half.  The sickness, the emotions, the dread just kept going.  I didn’t know if I could do it.  I didn’t know if I could get better.  I wanted to.  But my body did not want to.  And although the persons helped me as much as they could, I was hurting.

And they wanted to try another vet person.  And so we went to some nice people who said they wanted to help me.  And they did.  They listened.  They gave me medicine.  And pretty quickly, I was able to stand up.  And I could look out the window there.  And I wondered what I would do.  What I would do with this extra time that I did not think that I had.

I knew that without my family, and especially without my brother Brickle, I would not have wanted more time.  I knew that it was because of them I was trying.  It was because I knew that they needed me.  I couldn’t give up.  I could not.

And yet, when we got back in the truck to go home, all the emotions hit us all.  The extra time that we knew we had been given was more than a gift.  It was a miracle.  It was everything and anything I needed.

And even if my extra time would have been that car ride home with my brother in the back seat, I would have been happy with that.

They say to take one day at a time.

And I disagree.  I say one hour at a time.  Be thankful for what you have and who you have.  Be thankful for the little moments.  The big moments.  The moments you may think don’t matter.  Because I will tell you, they do matter.  I matter.  The effort the persons put in to making me feel better mattered.  Don’t listen when others tell you to give up or to give up on the ones you love.  Do what is in your heart to get that extra hour.  Whatever you have to do.

The blog will be back on Monday morning! Until then, we are going to rest and you can keep up with us on social media all throughout the day!  Thank you for some time for us to get stronger and better for you.
