I just wanted to let you know why I have been missing-in-action in regards to visiting your blogs and following up on the links for Mailbox Monday. I barely feel strong enough to post this..but I need to honor Bruce's life and by doing this I guess I'm admitting to myself that he is gone from this world. On Monday evening Bruce died doing what he loved the most...running around the yard and chasing his pal Lily and our stupid Razor. But this time we had a small wagon attached to the Razor and Bruce ran behind it and the wagon ran him over. To say that it was devastating to witness is an understatement. I'm working really hard to get his final moments out of my memory, but I need to remember that I was the last voice and hands he felt and take some sort of comfort in that. Bruce was my first ever dog that just belonged to me. He's been my sidekick for 8 years and over that course of time he showed me what unconditional love was really about. He knew when I was sad and gave me comfort. He loved to play with his monkey and putting Lily in her place on a daily basis. My husband, son, Lily (our other dog) and myself are lost without Bruce right now. Nothing feels right. My morning routine isn't right. The quietness of my house is not right. That's what killing me the most right now...the damn quiet. So, I'm taking a break right now. The reviews that I posted this week were done last week. I guess God knew what he had planned for me when he made me feel like I should get ahead of the game huh? I'll try really hard to visit everyone on Mailbox Monday next week...and I will post for that because I know that I need to try to get back to the 'new' normal. However, I can't say when I will be by visiting your lovely blogs. Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog and always giving me support throughout the three years that I've been blogging. Many of you are familiar with Bruce and know what he meant to me. Your kindness is what will help me and my family heal.
