I’m 24 years old and I’m blessed to not yet to have lost an immediate family member (a statistic I hope I didn’t just jinx by mentioning I️t) I’ve witnessed many friends lose parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts and uncles so I️t kind of felt stupid feeling so broken up about losing a pet. Tapping on the hourglass for more sand as I️f 13 years wasn’t enough. It’s been a tough week, but I know I have to acknowledge you in order to let you go.
There were times when I’d come home from school sad, feeling misunderstood and not having many friends and you were the only friend that I had. The only “person” who understood me. You loved me for no reason at all. Even when I didn’t realize the importance of getting a line up weekly🤦🏽♂️ (hairline looking like the Lincoln tunnel) And I loved you too. I spent the first 4 years of your life being severely allergic to you but I wasn’t going to let something as trivial as breathing come between us.
I could go on forever, but I’ll say in short, thank you for choosing me. Thank you for growing up with me. I’ll love you forever Bailey. ❤️
