Like a Feather in the Wind (Day 8)

"Yes, you can lose somebody overnight. 
Yes, your whole life can 
be turned upside down. 
Life is short. It can come and go 
like a feather in the wind."
~Shania Twain

The past month was a tough one for me. I'm not very good at handling loss. On August 8th, I lost my beloved 34 year old horse, Rudy overnight. It was a shock and a relief because I assume he went quickly in the night and I didn't have to see him suffer or make any heart wrenching decisions. He came into my life 33 years ago and was never anything but a wonderful pleasure and an amazing gift. He left this world and my life gracefully and I am so very thankful to God that he went quickly and hopefully painlessly. My grief is finally starting to lessen and the tears are coming on less frequently. The gaping hole in my life and the stronghold he has on my heart will always remain. The way to truly appreciate something is to realize it may be lost, so I'm trying harder everyday to be thankful and appreciate all the wonderful memories we shared and all blessings I have in my daily life.
