When I got home from work on Wednesday I received the most thoughtful note in the mail. I should tell you that since Goose crossed the Rainbow Bridge the time I spend at work (between the homeless shelter and church) has increased. I have always worked a lot of hours but recently it has increased a great deal, working 14 to 17 hours a day. I don't say that as a "woe is me", I love what I do. Just without my Goose I find myself working more. The last two weeks have been especially intense as we have moved out of the old shelter and into the new facility. This is a HUGE endeavor. Have you ever moved a homeless shelter without skipping a beat as far as feeding and sheltering people and pets? Of course as the kitchen manager/chef it is my responsibility to get the kitchen and all it contains moved to the new facility all the while still feeding everyone each day. But by the grace of God it has all gone well.
With that said, when I get home I am beyond tired and sometime frustrated. When Goose was with me he was my comfort on days like that. Always there to listen to me, snuggle with me or make sure I get out and take a walk and just relax. I really needed something like that on Wednesday. So as I said when I got home there was a special card from a very especial guy and his staff. Of course I'm talking about Gooses brother EASY from across the pond (France).
EASY gathered himself with his own paws. EASY I cannot tell you how it lifted my spirits. I even put aside the work I brought home with me and held your card as I took a walk. I'll say it again, Blogville and it's citizens are the very best. Could you imagine this world if it were more like Blogville? I can and it would be perfectly beautiful. Hugs to you Easy and your staff.
