elizabethesther These arrived today. My brain tells me I should be feeling excited about this, my new book. But my heart is still heavy with mourning for Teddy. I know I *should* be happy right now? And yay? But I'm just...tired with grief. I *do* believe this book will help a lot of people. So, I'm thankful for that. And I can't wait for you to read it. 2w

  •   justbrendap There are no shoulds when it comes to feelings. They are what they are, and it's OK to feel grief more than excitement right now. I'll feel excited for you (because I am SO excited to read it!). Grief doesn't stay like this forever, so it's OK that it is where it is right now. <3 2w

elizabethesther Nelly is so happy to be a Mommy again. She was literally smiling. And then she lay down next to Roosevelt and just stared at him. And now I'm crying happy tears. 3w

elizabethesther I know he'll never replace my Teddy, but he's the next best thing: he's Teddy's brother--an actual litter mate that the breeder kept for herself because he was such a good boy. And when I told her what had happened to Teddy, she was so sorry for our loss that she offered him to me. And for the first time this week, I smiled. We haven't quite decided on a name yet. But we're thinking maybe Roosevelt..... 3w

elizabethesther Sewing my tears away. Made this little outdoor set: weather-proof pillows, porch mat and coasters. Teddy would be proud of me for getting out of bed and doing something kind for myself and others. I know he wants me to be happy again. Someday, Teddy. Someday. 3w
  •   heathertruett Love this. 3w
  •   hersoutherncharm He does. And he's waiting for you. St. Francis is giving him some good cuddles right now. 3w

elizabethesther I brought my roses inside. But nothing is helping. The grief is so heavy that I cannot even get out of bed today. I miss my baby so much. So very, very much. Is this the price for loving so hard? For loving so completely? 3w
  •   clubtwenty 3w
  •   amberlee0211 I am so sorry. I love you. 3w
  •   heavensreef Remember that GOD HEALS your brokenness. So sorry about your sweet one. Did you know there is a Rainbow Bridge site for pets on FB ? It helped me when we lost our Charlie. The people there are a help and comfort. @elizabethesther 3w
  •   natalie_1971 Sorry. It must pass. 3w

elizabethesther Even my roses were sad today. They're my friends, these roses. I sat with them for awhile. Sometimes when you're sad you just need to sit quietly with your friends. 3w

elizabethesther Penelope keeps looking for her little buddy. I've never seen her so sad. Yesterday she laid her head in my lap with Teddy's favorite toy--a stuffed elephant-- in her mouth. My head hurts from crying so much. I feel almost embarrassed that I'm THIS attached to a pet. How do people get over this? I just want him back! I just want him in my arms one more time! It feels so so wrong that there's nothing we can do, there's no way to fix it. I'm exhausted and feel so, so empty. 3w
  •   rachmcclay Dogs provide unconditional love. It's a huge loss. 3w
  •   karhermansen I am sorry, Elizabeth. :( 3w
  •   natalie_1971 Sometimes a sad event carries all our grief about other stuff that's going on. I once cried 2 hours over a tortoise killed on the road, but afterwards I realised I was crying about my dad's stroke. 3w
  •   minneleah @natalie_1971 so true 3w
