A Blink Of An Eye

This is Peanut Butter Brickle. The last few weeks have brought so many unexpected happenings. One morning, we were planning to get on a ship to that Italy place and went to a vet to make sure I was healthy.

But by the end of the day, concerns about my health overshadowed any country. And no ship for us. At least for now.

It’s been hard not to worry. And in fact, it’s been impossible not to worry. But eventually you have to move past all of the facts and make decisions with your heart.

In a blink of an eye, life can change.

You are on one path and you take a wrong turn. Sometimes its because of nothing under our control. And its easy to get frustrated and upset. But I know that doesn’t help. Even when another dog decided he didn’t like me at the dog beach yesterday and knocked me to the ground. After the persons helped me, it still took me awhile to get my bearings and to get up. I didn’t see it coming. It happened in the blink of an eye. And I felt so overwhelmed. Sure seems like everything is difficult right now.

Fruitycake seemed to run for the hills when the dog came after me. Yes. I know that there are not hills in this Florida place. But he ran there. In a blink of an eye he was gone. And that’s how some individuals deal with problems in life.

Running away may be our first response. Believe me, I don’t want to have surgery. I don’t want to be in pain. I don’t want to have any of this. But I also can’t ignore it. I have to face it and I have to be strong.

The persons have one more vet to speak with today in order to see if I can have the type of treatment they want for me. If we can’t get that determined, we will be driving to that California place to see my vet there. And in a hurry.

In a blink of an eye, decisions have to be made. Because time waits for no one. Not even me.

But I’ve been thru things in my life that have made me who I am. And who I am is one that wants to be here. And wants to go on more adventures in good health. Don’t discount my abilities based on my age. I am Brickle. I am me. I am determined.

I am counting on you to encourage me. Kind words can help in a blink of an eye.
