Letter to my Daughter – April 2013

Dear Daughter,
While we did some fun things this month (Winter Fair and the petting zoo and dog show, Easter Egg hunts), we also had some sad times.  This month you lost one of your best friends.  K was a good dog and she loved you so much.  She would sleep with you at night to “keep the monsters away”.  Every day after school, K would greet you at the door, tail wagging, and you would run over and give her a big hug.  She was your buddy.  When we told you K was gone and wouldn’t be coming back, I think you understood on some level.  But you were really sad that she wouldn’t be able to sleep in your room anymore.  That night, you took a picture of her down from your wall and put it beside your bed so she would be close to you.  Even though it’s been several weeks now, you still talk about K.  Sometimes you miss her, sometimes you don’t.  But you still sleep with that picture of her beside your bed at night so she can watch over you while you sleep. 🙂
Every day may not be good… But there’s something good in every day“.
