How very true.
I was having a major bad day......went outside for 10-15 mins and just rubbed and hugged Holly and things get clearer and I found the strength to handle the situation at least for that moment. I am glad I have her to help deal with major life hardships.
Funny thing was as I was leaning on her back and crying she put her head on my back and just stood that way for a couple mins.
now, ready for the next thought of the day...glad you started this.
