Isn’t it amazing how much our hearts and bodies (sometimes), can take? The heart is very resilient. Even though it probably has been broken many times, it continues to beat.

Whether it was from that first love in high school, or that relationship during/after college that you ‘thought’ would be forever or even trouble in your marriage. But the worst kind is losing a loved one to death. I would rather be shot in the leg than to have to ever go through any more of those. However, the heart mends, some. It goes from a break to a small crack, but we still feel it daily anyway. 



And as far as our bodies go... stress, nervousness, etc. We make decisions every day, mostly small, but still decisions. Then bigger ones like should I change jobs, do I “need” a new car, should I try out a different insurance (don’t get me started). Or the major ones... am I really sick, should I have that surgery, ugh! We all fall into one of these categories, and it most likely makes you have a “bad” day. Well, I had a bad day a couple of weeks ago. I had just picked up another prescription from our vet for my sweet Sophie. On this particular day, we were not sure if she was going to get better or not. I had also just learned that my husband was going to have to have yet, another surgery. So my mind was occupied. 

And as always, hug yourself AND everyone you love! Much love to all until next time.
