Marci (our resident yogi) is joining us today with another heartwarming post. Thanks for sharing your heart with us once again Marci.
Every yogi has a teacher. You don’t always know it when you first
meet that person, but eventually it becomes an obvious, undeniable fact
that this is the person that knows what you are meant to learn. I am
fortunate that my teacher happens to have a facebook page and today, she
posted the following
Accepting things as they are is not a passive act; it requires great resolve and courage.
was as if she knew that this was exactly what I needed to hear today,
because my dog is ill, not able to be treated, and the time has come to
say goodbye. And I don’t want to say goodbye. Not at all. This is,
quite possibly, the most difficult thing I have had to do in my life.
My head knows it’s the right thing to do…but my heart…oh my heart is
breaking. Our son, who no longer lives at home, came back to spend some
time with her. And when she saw him, she bounded over to him, wildly
wagging her tail…and later I told him that that is how he should hold
her in his heart…happy and joyful. And, as he was leaving today, he
gave me a hug and told me, ‘Mom, it’s the right thing to do’.
head knows it…my heart is having a very difficult time accepting it.
But tomorrow morning, I will take a deep breath, strengthen my resolve,
and bravely say goodbye to my sweet dog through my tears.
