Sally Mae...


With Tim's help, I was finally able to get my paper submitted and my bag packed for my road trip tomorrow. My heart truly aches tonight as I prepare to say goodbye to a very special part of my life for the past 5 years. Tim packed her "things" for me and it brought me to tears to see the empty space beside the trash can where her bowls have always been. I am very thankful that my Dad and Julie are generous enough to welcome her into their home. They even seem excited to have her join them, and I am comforted by that. We will miss her terribly, but know that she will be getting the attention and love she deserves in her new home. Its strange how life works out sometimes.....Sally Mae was my dearest friend during one of the times in my life that I needed that the most....I will always hold her dear to my heart! Pray for Sally and I as we hit the highway for 12 long hours tomorrow! One last road trip together......

Wow, Carrie, I am so sorry. I know that your heart is hurting. I will say a prayer for you. Sally Mae is going to a good home, but I know you will miss her. Have a safe trip.

Oh Carrie, I have tears in my eyes! As you well know I am an animal freak too, they were our first babies :) Good luck to you and safe travels. Make sure you have those tissues handy, I know I would be crying a good part of that drive! Love you and saying comfort prayers for you guys ;)
