Today I'm Packing Up
Moving On
Not From Loss
Just From This Place
This Space That I Love So
But Don't Worry Pain And Loss
You'll Somehow Tag Along Too
Onward To Something New

Moving is hard for a lot of reasons, and it encompasses a lot of loss and goodbyes too. Even if it's a good thing, we're still leaving the last space that our pets occupied while they were here with us. Having a goodbye ritual to say thank you to the house/space where we lived helps us (1) to say goodbye to our house but (2) to honor all those experiences that we had within those walls. 

Join us if you'd like to talk, share, and just listen to others today. If you can't, write or share a beautiful memory you have with someone you love.


How many different places did you live with your pet? If it was just one place, did you ever take them on trips with you? Did they like to be outside of the house? If so, where? If not, what was there favorite spot in the house? Did you enjoy spending time there too? Spend a few minute remembering all the different places you've been together, then write.
