And this is why I haven’t completely given up on the human race

Since little Bubba passed I have received sympathy cards from people with the kind of personal note in it that tells you they truly do understand what a well-loved pet can mean to your life. And one wonderful couple… thank you Joanie and Paul… even made donations in her honor to animal charities. And then, out of the clear blue comes a package from my cousin with a giant Hershey’s bar in it to comfort me in my loss and remind me of the amazing aunts and uncles who surrounded us as we grew up. My heart is still sad at Bubba’a loss but the sadness is tempered with the joy of knowing that there are still some pretty wonderful people in my life.
