And Another One Gone

My son and I left this morning at 5:30am to take Bri to college. The three of us had a long sad drive as we knew it was going to be hard to say goodbye to Bri. My son and I helped Bri unpack and get all her things put away and I made her bed and put the little stuffed doodle doggie that I gave her on her pillow. And was time to say goodbye.  Sigh.  That was a hard one. Bri came into our lives mid-May of this year.  The minute we met her, we all loved her.  Sadly Bri doesn't have the home life she deserves. Not even close. Some people are just dealt a rotten deck of cards - and Bri is one of those people. How someone could not just squeeze her and hug her every single day and tell her how amazingly awesome she is, is beyond my comprehension. Bri graduated from high school with perfect attendance and a 4.0 GPA. Bri is compassionate, thoughtful, caring, hard-working and just about the sweetest person you could ever meet. We pretty much adopted Bri this summer. Bri jumped right in and did all the farm chores and hay baling and house cleaning and doodle doggie chores as if she were always meant to be a part of Yesteryear Acres.  We loved having Bri here and I know she loved being here.  She loves our doodle doggies as much as we do and we are her family.  Last night when she said goodbye to all the doggies she wondered if they would remember her.  The answer is YES Bri - all the doodle doggies will definitely remember you.  Love lasts forever.  Yesteryear Acres will be here waiting for you when you have long weekends, and holidays, and school breaks and we will text you and email you and call you.  You might feel alone at school - but you are definitely not alone.  We are all here cheering you on and are so proud of you.  You are going to be an AWESOME nurse! And when you come back home......I know a few doodle doggie tails that will be wagging with joy when you walk in the door!
