We Become Aware Of A Void When We Fill It

This is Peanut Butter Brickle. When we were hiking yesterday, I came across such a beautiful spot.

There was a tree and a stream and a hole filled with water so clear it didn’t look real.

It was wonderful. And even Fruitycake had a drink. It gave him more pep in his step.

Watching Fruitycake enjoy the water made me really think. I didn’t know who Fruitycake was just a short time ago. I didn’t know what was missing in my life. Sure. I knew Digby was missing from my side. And that has hurt worse than any pain I’ve ever felt. But I also didn’t know that the void left by Digby would be so deep. And forever.

When Digby first passed away, I tried to just breathe like the persons. Making it thru every day was a struggle. But as time went on, even though the pain didn’t get less, I tried to find some way to deal with it. I tried to fill it with many things. But what I needed was Fruitycake.

When we fill a void in our lives and we make it thru our days in a different way, we see how we have filled it. Fruitycake has made me want to try harder. He’s made life fun again. He’s made me realize that the holes in our life can never be filled in the same way when we lose someone. But we can fill it with something else to appreciate.

The hole with the clear water was refreshing. Just like Fruity.

When you open your heart to different ways of filling a void, there should be no guilt in that. There should be a way to be happy again. And you deserve that refreshment.

We are moving campsites this weekend and Monday to make our way to Williamsburg, Virginia for the month of August. See our event reminder below.

    Yes Brickle loosing someone like Digby will be one of the hardest things you will ever have to deal with. I have lost both my parents a best friend and then 3 beagle daughters it is hard for sure no one will replace them. Now as I sit here with my beagle Crystal I know , NO other dog will replace her. At 15.5 yrs young she is my BFF for sure. But when the time comes I will find another BFF to help ease the pain but my heart will still be broken 💔 from the ones that have gone to heaven and doggie heaven… enjoy each day with your people GP BP and of course Fruitycake. As you know Digby is there in spirit forever just like they are for me.
