It’s been such a difficult “changing of seasons” this year... punctuated by the saddest goodbye to my baby, my angel. My dear Pasquale. 😔 It’s been almost one month and I’m still feeling lost... in agony and emptiness. Slowly picking up the pieces... Today, I was listening to a book on @audible_com, and the author was reflecting about the loss of her dog. She said “I loved him so much it scared me.” That is exactly how I felt about sweet P. ❤️ He was my happy place. My light. My heart and soul. I understand that the void can never be filled and healing will take a lifetime... but making room in my life for new joy is important. And, even though I was reluctant at first, I reconsidered when someone reached out recently looking to re-home a little guinea pig. This is Gnocchi - a three year old Abysnnian piggy. A brother for Lucca. And a new light in my life. 🌟 ...Our world will never be the same as it was, but it can still be good.
