This morning I was staying in bed taking it easy since I over did yesterday and I'm feeling it now. Huge blogging nerd that I am, I grabbed my laptop as soon as I woke up to see what was going on out in cyber space. I checked my email, some news, Olympic updates, and of course my friends blog entries. As I typed a comment to a fellow blogger it occurred to me that my left hand was heavy and not working very well. This is what I saw! Look who love's me:
A canine's loyalty and affection is the most comforting thing ever! This little pup has been with us for most of our infertility journey...well, we got her several months after we learned it was going to be a long, hard road. She was our first baby, really. We raised her together since she was 9 weeks old. It has given us an outlet to express some parental love and nurturing. Even though she's just a puppy, it was something to hold and love while we've waited.
So this morning while she lovingly rested her sleepy head on my hand I was reminded of all the times she loved me when I needed it most. She never said the wrong things like, "just try to stress about it," or "at least you are still young." She let me feel whatever I wanted to feel, and she never judged me for a moment. She didn't try to solve my problems, and she never grew tired of me. She was the perfect companion in those dark hours.
So this post is goes out to all the dogs (and cats) who are helping us along the way. Your love is priceless!!
Thank you Puppies!!!!
