Dinner Time

While my kids were eating dinner, I finally thought I was ready to open the box we got from UPS, containing the ashes of my 17-year-old dog. Even just looking at his name on the cremation certificate was too much. I sat down and called my other dog, a 15-year-old. She came over and I hugged her head. My 4-year-old boy saw me crying.

"What are you doing?"

"I'm hugging Gingee," I said.


"Because I love her."

He put down his fork, stood up, and walked toward me with his arms wide open. He hugged me for a few seconds.

"I'm hugging you because I love you," he said.



  1. Cute, and sweet! That would be the best gift ever, feeling loved!

  2. Hugs from 4 year old can cure anything. Seriously, they ought to be bottled. So, sweet.

    Happy New Year.

  3. Why men needs to have dog? I can't understand but simply I can't live without them.

  4. Sometimes kids get it just right. Good for both of you.
