Losses and Life

It hurts to lose someone to death. It hurts when it happens two times. Why is it happening to me in just 3 months? All within one year, my grandpa died and the best dog ever died. I know I will never see them again. I never got to say a proper goodbye either. My life will never be the same.

Now, I know they would want me to live on. My grandpa had to go, he was old and he left the world from his hometown. He was truly happy to see his vision of a good boarding school in his small hometown. Doggie saved me from drowning, taught me not to be afraid of big dogs and gave me something to work for.

They all love me no matter what. I will always love my grandpa and doggie.

That isn't all, my favorite teacher died, I had to move to a new school, 'my' horse died, and my parents divorced suddenly in such a short amount of time. So next time you think you've had it bad, remember that it can be worse.
