with a few simple words

last year a family who lives not too far from us lost their house in a fire. sadly, they lost their beloved dog, too. i did not know this family, but my heart ached for their loss of their dog. the pain it had to endure, the loss they felt. at times, it was overwhelming for me. 

tonight kev rode his bike past the house, over to ne portland, to grab a beer with a friend. i got the following text:

"Fyi the people on 60th with the fire have a new puppy."

i love kevin for knowing that i needed that. in a few simple words i am reminded how much he really does love me. in a few simple words i am aware of how lucky i am.

Makes me happy just reading that. You should ninja by there some late night and leave a puppy-safe chew toy =)
