to sleep, perchance to dream

i love it when grandma comes. i get to sleep in the guest bed.

I never thought there was the possibility of getting that close to a dog before. There were nights when it was so cold out that I would have him crawl into my sleeping bag with me just so I could stay warm.

Sometimes...okay, often I am at a loss for words. I have a warm bed. I am safe. I love my cats and they love me. 

I will never know what it must be like for Corporal Singer and his dog. I thank them both for their service. 

May they be safe. 

May they be warm.

May they know they are loved.

Thank you.
