You taught me that there is such a thing as love at first sight.
You taught me that it’s ok to let you sleep in my arms because you’ll only fit in them for such a short amount of time.
You taught me that kids need love & attention, good food, exercise and discipline. (Not necessarily in that order.)
You taught me patience, compassion and kindness. (Okay so I’m still learning patience.)
You taught me how to bask in the sunshine, roll in the grass and live in the moment.
You’ve been a friend, a pillow, an alarm clock, a therapist, a trainer, a horsie, a reindeer for about thirty seven seconds while the stupid antlers stayed on your head, and my first (furry) baby.
You taught me what unconditional love is.
And now you’re going to teach me a lesson I am completely unprepared to learn, how to let you go.
I don’t know when we will decide it’s time to say goodbye, I know you will guide me in figuring that out.
I know I will cherish each lesson we have left together.
