Since I recently read Mindy Kaling’s book, this little quote has stuck with me, and it applies to this week so well. Ever since I found out that we would be saying goodbye to Lucy, I have a hard time thinking about anything else. Just simple conversation about anything else takes some serious effort.
The truth is that seeing how much she’s in pain is breaking my heart. The medicine doesn’t seem to do much anymore. And she’ll only get worse if we don’t say goodbye tomorrow.
Still, I’ve been trying to spend the last few days somewhat normally, because life has to go on, right? And there’s nothing I can do except get in extra snuggles, try to keep her as comfortable as I can, and keep myself going. I’ve cried, and I’ll cry some more. But there’s a limit, isn’t there? At some point I have to do something else, because the world won’t stop when Lucy does. Luckily, the most I have to do this week is smile while I see random people at the store, and possibly when I see some friends this weekend. If we smile, we feel happier, right?
