it still sucks, thanks for asking

Today one of the counselors in the bishopric started testimony meeting off by stating how grateful he was for his family, how nice it was after a bad day to have a lovely wife & sweet kids to come home to. Then he went on for a bit about how a dog, though, was probably the best. A dog loves you no matter what, they don't ask for much in return, and they lose their minds with excitement everytime you come home.
He may as well have kicked me in the face.
Oh my gosh.
All the missing just came washing back over me again like no time had passed at all.
I just sat there & quietly lost it, crying gigantic silent tears into my baby's fat little neck.
It sucked.

And for the record, if I read or talk to one more person that complains about their dog, their neighbor's dog, or a dog they used to know.... I might have to slap a ho.

I'm just sayin'.
