This is Peanut Butter Brickle. I’ve lived many days. It’s more than just being alive many days. I’ve enjoyed my life so far. And I am looking forward to more days to come. Yes. Even the surgery day next week. Because there is a purpose to it. Just like I have a purpose. Just like you have a purpose.
I realized this yesterday at the vet person office. There we were. Talking about what to do with the lump monster. Talking about getting better and talking about how Fruitycake was being fruity.
I felt kind of rushed. Like questions were being answered. But everything was happening too fast. It’s like everyone wanted the visit over with quick. And although I understand that persons have to get things done, I am not sure they realize how they look. How they sound. They just. Rush. When will you realize that there truly is no hurry? There truly is not.
Being alive is something to be grateful for. But are you living? Or just going thru the motions?
I know I’ve talked about this before. But it’s important. When will you realize what you’re rushing towards will be there when you get there? Can’t you enjoy the journey?
I’m nervous about the surgery day next week. Yes. But I want to enjoy my days. I don’t want to worry more by not getting it taken care of. I want the persons to realize when us dogs and furkids are going thru something like this, we need you to slow down. We need you to ask questions you want to ask. We need you to respect each other in front of us. We need you to be our voice. We count on you to live.
So know this. I’m excited to feel better. Because we’ve taken the time to make sure it was the right decision. Treat your life the same way. Following your heart and get on the path to feeling better. Your destination has always been waiting for you.
