When Love Shows Up In Unexpected Ways
My dog Bernie came into my life right before I got really sick. I didn’t know at the time how much I was going to need him in the coming years. When my health started to decline, he was right there every step of the way. Helping me get up, offering support, and simply being next to me when I couldn’t do anything but lay there. As the years went by and my health improved, Bernie continued to be a source of constant support, friendship and love. There were many times he was all I had and I will forever be grateful for his presence in my life.
Yesterday was the first major neurological event I’ve had since saying goodbye to my best friend. His absence glaring as I struggled alone, missing him so much it hurt. I slept most of the day but kept finding his green ball next to or under me no matter how many times I moved it away. Every squeak reminding me of him.
That ball has been on my bed for months, never once finding its way to me until yesterday. Until I needed a reminder that Bernie will always be with me. He will always be by my side supporting me. That I am never alone. I realized that his ball being next to or under me was not a coincidence. That when I wished for his presence, he was there. Showing me through a ball that he loved and would make me laugh when he pressed his goofy sweet face on top of it to make it squeak. Showing me that our love lives on and that sometimes love shows up in unexpected ways
