A Broken Heart

I have nothing to post. I know it is VEGANMOFO, but my family dog died unexpectedly last night and I am a mess with nothing but sadness for my family and that dear dog in my heart.

Sorry.

I actually have to go to a damn work retreat right now. I really just want to be home with Kevin. Hopefully, by the weekend I will feel more in the frame of mind to get back to VEGANMOFO. Until then, please send little doggie love thoughts to my family.

I am so sorry about the loss of your pup. That has to be one of the hardest things to get through. Take your time and spend lots of time with Kevin. Don't worry about us - we'll still be here when you are feeling better. :-)

i'm sorry to hear of your loss. my pets are actually my first children and have been the family that my own parents could never be to me, so i feel you. in the jewish tradition we sit shiva-(hebrew for seven) when someone we love dies. this means we really take the time for a week to sit and wail, contemplate, and reflect on our memories of that loved one. during shiva, one's community brings the grieving one food and does whatever that person needs to effectively grieve. after the first week, a jew stays in shloshim-(hebrew for 30) and slowly adjusts to life back into our communities. there's more, but i just thought i'd share a mourning custom with you.

OMG I'm SO incredibly sorry. I know what it's like to suddenly lose that warmth that fills your soul. I know. Allow yourself the time to be sad. Allow yourself the time to reflect and don't push those feelings away. Take time to rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul, k? You have my prayers and thoughts! XO

Oh no! I'm so sorry! That's terrible. I'm so sorry for your loss! And it really blows that you have to go do something for work that you don't want to considering the circumstances. Hang in there! It'll get better in time. And your doggie will always be a cherished memory!
