I’m a pretty private person. One of my mom’s greatest fears is that I will move to the mountains and become a hermit. But today, I feel like I just need to share this story.
For 6 years, our family struggled with infertility issues, which resulted in at least 4 miscarriages. When I couldn’t have a biological child of my own, I got Keykers. He was my baby. He was my best friend.
He taught me about unconditional love. He taught me to be accepting of everyone, no matter the situation, you never know the personal trials that someone is going through. I haven’t learned this lesson so well yet but Keykers was perfect at it. No matter how bad I felt, no matter how scared I was, he was always by my side and loved me and made me feel safe in some of the darkest years of my life.
On the grand scale of things, the stuff we stress out about and fight about everyday, really doesn’t matter. Living life and making memories with your family is what really matters.
So remember, if only for this day, if someone cuts you off in traffic, is rude to you at the store, or whatever it is, please just give them the benefit of the doubt. They may be dealing with a very heavy heart. They may have just had to let their best friend go.
I love you Keykers. Everything is ok now.
