Journaling to Heal

We had to say goodbye to our Dudley today.  Sad times, but now he has no more earthly troubles and I know he's running and playing with friends long since passed.

Art always soothes my soul.  The night sketch was created Sunday.  I knew our days together were numbered and I so wanted to document our wee-hour pee trip walks.  Despite the lack of sleep these trips caused, like everything with our Dudley, there was always a gift attached.  In this case some amazing night skies.  Maybe in the days to come when I get up in the middle of the night for my own trip, I'll muster up the energy to take a walk outside in honor of my sweet boy, Dudley.

I completed the rest of this page today, after saying goodbye to our boy.  Taking loving care with it, just as I did with him, helped to bring a peace to me.

We love you, Dudley.  You'll always, always be in our hearts.
