This is Fruitycake. I know for a fact that absence makes the heart grow fonder. When I don’t have food in front of me I sure love it more.
But I especially know that Boy Person in an under appreciated part of our pack. I am just being honest. Dogs can do that. It’s all we know how to do. I also know how to steal his pillow.
And since I haven’t been in this family as long as Brickle I see things a little different. I don’t see the history. I see the now. And the now says our family needs to appreciate him more. Because he does a lot for us. And when he’s not here, things just are not the same.
Boy Person has always been captain of the ship. Or the RV.
He has to make a lot of decisions for us. He watches out for us. He serves us ice water at call. He’s the best barktender.
But his presence is what I miss most. Just knowing he is here means everything. And I can’t wait to see him when he gets back. But today he has something to do if he makes it to that Italy place. Yes. He has been thru a lot the last two days. Flight mishaps. Train mishaps. No room mishaps. So. Many. Problems. We’ve been wanting to help but not knowing how.
But Brickle says our persons always figure out a way. Always. He says that life is worth living and even when problems happen, it doesn’t make you give up. It makes you stronger. It makes you feel alive.
Absence makes the heart grow fonder and the love grow bigger. Never take the ones for granted in your life that would leave a hole if they were gone. Look at others in your family with new eyes. And see how much they truly bring to your life.
