We had a family gathering yesterday. Birthday party for kids, too. It’s good to keep in touch. Lots of food at the potluck lunch. I had mostly steak and grilled chicken. Took a bite of sweet mango sticky rice. Nan and I skipped dinner afterward as we were not hungry.
Played with a Shih Tzu dog of Nan’s auntie. So small.
At my parents’ house, we are without a dog for the first time in over 20 years. Sometimes I miss having dogs around. But I also like the freedom and serenity of not having to take care of another life. Seeing my old dogs in pain as they were close to their deaths was hard.
One day we’ll be gone too. It’s just a matter of time. Transformation is part of nature.
