I've read on several blogs where the owners of a dog have had to put it to sleep due to old age. I actually had tears erupt reading one blog and I thought I couldn't cry due to my medications. I don't know what I would do without Maggie. She is like my daughter and closest confidant all rolled into one. I have nightmares thinking of her getting out of the fence and running out into the busy highway down from my house. I pray everyday that she has enough sense not to dig out and bolt. I love her so much.
Mom came this morning bringing coffee from Mickey D's. It was delicious. Mom has got to take my sister-in-law and my two nieces to see my grandmother today. I hope they see Joyce as well. I had the opportunity to go, but feel like a hermit and will stay home.
My AA meeting today was routine. A good group of people and Karen was there. We spoke for a long time after the meeting until the heat chased us to our cars. She's far more religious than I am, though, in our talk. I still struggle with higher powers, God, and the likes. Each day I draw closer to a God of my understanding. Not the spiteful, tyrannical God of the Old Testament, but a kind and benevolent soul bent on my best interests.
