Blog Challenge 5. A Letter

This is a letter to my ds, who was feeling guilty over the death of our dog Daisey. He was the one who closed the car door after she jumped in. He thought dh was taking her for a ride. :(

My Dearest Bradley,
It is not your fault daisey died. She knows you loved her, she knows we all loved her, and that we would never do anything on purpose to hurt her. You asked me If I thought Daisey forgived you for closing the car door. There is nothing to forgive. She knows you didn't know how it could hurt her. She loved you very much.
Sometimes mommy and daddy talk about how daisey felt, or what we should have done, and I want you to know, we don't do it to make you feel guilty, we do it because WE feel guilty. we feel like it is our fault. It was no ones fault, but that does not help our feelings sometimes.

You will be old enough to understand someday, I just pray this whole incident doesn't make you feel guilty for the rest of your life. Just know it was a horrible accident, and I think all of us will be more aware of where our pets are at all times from now on. We love you honey, and I don't want you to feel bad. Love, mommy.

Big hugs to you and little Bradley.
Just a tragic tragic accident...Daisey knew how much you all loved her. And I am sure that her time here on earth was very precious.
