Because it’s always easier to bear the pain ourselves, than to watch those we love suffer.
I always say I have it easy being the sick one. While it’s no fun being in pain, and dealing with chronic illness, I would take this any day over watching Scotty suffer. He often has the raw end of the deal, having to hold my hand, without being able to help me feel better.
If it were you, which side of the bargain would you choose?
I missed posting yesterday.
Normally I’d be beating myself up over “failing” #NaBloPoMo, but I’m trying to cut myself some slack. Yesterday was a rare weekday off for my fiance. We were hoping to go to the coast, but circumstances kept us closer to home. So we wandered around a few thrift stores and took our doggy to run around the dog park.
Seeing our shy little guy continue to open up more and more was worth so much to my soul. It’s a wonderful feeling to know he’s feeling safer with us each day. It’s such a blessing to be able to give him this life of love, in light of the struggles in his past.
So here are some photos of my little doggy to make you smile.
