My heart is aching for you. No matter how long it takes you to recover from this loss (and it will probably take a long time) the memories of your sweet Ziggy will remain with you and give you comfort. You will meet again. He'll be lying at God's feet waiting to greet you again with unconditional love.
Big, bug hugs, sweet man. Rest in peace, Ziggy.
I'm sure you already are that person! ----Mark G.
I lost my best friend today. Everytime I came home he would remind me that I was the most important person on the face of the earth. He would mope for days when I would go away to sea but would eventually perk up whenever he would hear the leash rattle and go walkies with mommy. He never cared how I looked or if I were being moody or grumpy or anything. All he ever wanted was to be at my side and that made him happy. He LOVED going for walks in the forest, especially when he had my son to play with. My wife Johanne loves hiking and whenever I was away she would go off with Ziggy and feel safe.
I just hope that I can come close to being as good a person as Ziggy thought I was.
Thank you, Penny, for this valuable "Food 4 Thought". It reminded me of the following story that another actor sent me not long ago:
Growing Good Corn
By: Author Unknown
There once was a farmer who grew award-winning corn. Each year he entered his corn in the state fair where it won a blue ribbon.
One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew it. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors.
"How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with yours each year?" the reporter asked.
"Why sir," said the farmer, “don’t you know? The wind picks up pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbors grow inferior corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors grow good corn."
He is very much aware of the connectedness of life. His corn cannot improve unless his neighbor's corn also improves.
So it is with our lives. Those who choose to live in peace must help their neighbors to live in peace. Those who choose to live well must help others to live well, for the value of a life is measured by the lives it touches. And those who choose to be happy must help others to find happiness, for the welfare of each is bound up with the welfare of all.
The lesson for each of us is this: if we are to grow good corn, we must help our neighbors grow good corn.
FOOD 4 THOUGHT
Here's a little something to get you thinking this week!
People are often unreasonable and self-centered.
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives.
Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you.
Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous.
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, may be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough.
Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God.
It was never between you and them anyway.
Have a great week, my friends!
Here's a little thought for this special day
Love thrives in the face of all life's hazards save one . . . neglect.
Remember to appreciate your special someone today - and every day!
