This is Peanut Butter Brickle. When my heart feels love, it is one of the strongest emotions in the world. It’s been hard to let my heart feel for awhile. Because when I lose someone or something, that feeling is the worst in the world.
You may not know that a bed, a small bed, could bring up all of these complicated feelings. But it did. And so did Fruitycake. You see, Fruitycake loves his small bed. It keeps him off of the ground. And he just loves being up on things.
I particularly have never cared for anything that makes me feel unsteady. The older I get, the more I am careful about falling. I don’t want to fall at all.
And so I didn’t even think of trying the small bed. Until Fruitycake told me that it was wonderful. Until Fruitycake told me that I was welcome to try it out. And I appreciated the gesture. It made me feel that love in my heart again. It made me feel all the feelings in the world again.
I figured that if Fruitycake loved something as much as that bed, but he loved me even more, the small bed was a sign.
A sign that opening my heart again would be worth it. And so I tried out the bed. And it was definitely small. Real small.
But now that I love the small bed, the persons are going to need to buy another one. But one not so small for me.
Fruitycake has been one of the best parts of my whole life.
And even though he came many years into my life, just like the small bed, I didn’t know I needed him so much.
