Losing her has left behind an empty part of me. She will always occupy a space of my heart. As I write this, I find it difficult not to get emotional. She really was my best friend. She taught me how to love and that your spirit is stronger than anything the world can throw at it. I will forever be grateful to her for that. Sleep well, my friend. I will always miss you.
As our children grew up, it was wonderful to see the looks on their little faces as they opened their presents. All the excitement and anticipation that quickly turned into sheer joy and elation. Since I lost my sight eight years ago, I haven't had that same thrill with my grandchildren. While I try not be bitter about life, I do feel a little bit like I've been robbed of that pleasure.
We're all reminded from an early age that too much sugar and junk food will rot our teeth. I'm certain there are very few people out there who enjoy going to the dentist too! However, what about our pets? While we're unlikely to be indulging our pets with fizzy drinks and chocolate, we still need to think about their dental hygiene and where necessary, taking to them to the dentist.
