I'm Feeling Low Today
Missing You More Than Usual

Wondering How Long This Feeling Will Stay.
Oh, Forever. That's Right.
What A Delight.

Will I Ever Be Okay?
Return To The Way
I Was Yesterday?

Maybe One Day...
Just Not This Day.
Maybe I Can Let That Be Okay,
Just For Today.

Some days we're not at our best, even if it's been a while since we've parted. When those days come, what would it look like to treat it as a gentle reminder from our pets to check in with ourselves. Imagine they are the ones checkin in on you to see how you've been taking care of ourself. How have you been? 

I know grief is tough. If you'd like to chat, join us today. 

If you can't, share a story of them with someone you love.

Weekly Journaling Prompt

Imagine your pet is seeing you for the first time in 4 whole days. How excited are they? What kinds of questions are they going to ask you? Did you have a special voice that they asked those questions in? Write about it & spend some time together.
