So, I got a call from "A" the other day, and she's like "Beck, 'MK' (her oldest) wants to talk to you....I'm not sure how your going to take this...but she's asking to talk to you. Be strong...." and she kinda trails off. I knew that her mom's doggy had passed so I thought that 'MK' was just wanting to tell me about it....well she did...our conversation went alittle like this....
'MK': Aunt Becky?
Me: yeah babe?
'MK': Ian has a new friend today....Lilly, our puppy is in Heaven with him.
So, I'm trying to be strong....trying not to cry....but I did. I was so touched that this sweet, sweet, little girl (she's 8) thinks that much of me and my son! I mean, SHE is the one that just lost a puppy and she is calling ME to let me know that my baby isn't alone...that he has a friend! I wanted to reach through the phone and hug her! So I did what anyone would do...I pulled it together and told her that I was so sorry and that I bet that Ian and Lilly were playing fetch together. I also told her that they were happy and not in any pain....talked for a few more mins....got off the phone and sobbed like a little girl.
