Sorry that it has been a week since our last post. This past week has been a difficult one for our family and blogging was the furthest thing from my mind. On Friday, our family said goodbye to our beloved family pet, Simba.
I never had a pet growing up and I had no idea how much I would fall in love with Simba, or how much my heart would hurt to say goodbye. He was such a big part of our lives for over 13 years, and it’s going to take some time to heal for sure. But for now, I wait to hear his bark at the door, his excitement when we arrive home, his warm body curled up next to me, and his kisses. I realized again this week that when you choose to love, you also choose to allow your heart to be broken. We will forever miss you, Simba!
