I wish I could say that smiles were already coming so naturally to me…but these photos were taken before our little family – once again – experienced a loss last Wednesday.
My husband and I have had to say good-bye to three of our fur-babies within the past four months; and unfortunately, the grief doesn’t get any easier with “practice.” Once more, there’ve been a lot of tears…and a lot of memories of Badger (and Griffin and Flora, too) revisited.
But, almost imperceptibly, the sorrow does ease. After all, we have Wolfie to love…and we are already putting out feelers for other ferrets that are looking for a new home.
Would life be easier – and sometimes less heartbreaking – without the inclusion of four-legged family members?? It likely would be…but even in the afterglow of this sadness, I’m not yet willing to give it a try.
