Charlie Bear here. Mom Peep is back from her trip to Wisconsin to be with her family and to attend the funeral of little six-week-old Baby Hailey, Mom’s Great-Grandchild. She whispered in my ear that it was the hardest thing she has ever had to go through…to see the parents consumed with so much sadness and pain. She was so glad she was there to hug them, cry with them, listen to them, support them. That’s what family is for.
So now she’s back. She still gets misty and the tears still fall. I have a feeling that might be off and on for a very long while. Grief takes a long time and you all have to find your own way through the pain. I’m planning on loving Mom extra much as she takes it one day at a time.
There is something that will do Mom Peep a lot of good. She has a trip coming up with Dad next month. They planned it a long time ago. She also did an article for www.americanpetmagazine.com last year that is now out. In it, Mom talks about not only our CHARLIE BEAR book, but also about planning for the care of your pets when you go away.
See Page 11 in: http://www.americanpetmagazine.com/V2_Issue1.pdf and Page 14 for more on me (lol). P.S. It takes a while to load…but it’s worth it.
Did you make any plans yet for travel this year? You might want to read Mom’s article to find out how to feel at peace and reassured that your pets are well taken care.
So Happy New Year to everyone from me, Charlie Bear. Mom and I know that Baby Hailey is up in heaven with God, so we’re going to rejoice that she is by His side. So Mom Peep says Happy New Year too and hug all your loved ones tight, tight, tight.
