All Our Children Meow and Woof: My life is on track

All Our Children Meow and Woof

I created this blog to sort through my emotions as Finnegan, a great Irish Wolfhound, fought bone cancer for nearly 26 months. Fortunately, his battle subsided for many months and during the course of the 26 months, I shared stories about his feline siblings. On August 8, 2008, Finny passed on in my husband's and my arms. He fought the good fight and he will always have a special place in my heart. *If you have a question, please write me at finnegandog at gmail dot com.*

My life is on track

After a pretty terrible 2006, I think my life is finally back on track. I foresee 2007 as a great year. A year that will make up for the heartache (Finnegan's cancer diagnosis), bone breaks (my wrist), and the uncertainty of where my professional life was heading. As of January, I felt like I remained in a deep rut. Nothing would change. I was stuck. Depressed. Tired. Fed up.

And then. And then things changed. Life improved. It became less bleak. Professional stability and a sense of belonging arose. Rather than feeling like a tremendous weight on my chest could cease my breathing at any moment, I am smiling. And laughing. And finally, relaxed. I can see light at the end of this very dark tunnel. I see joy where the was none. I have found acceptance in my profession. Children in my future.

Peace and I have found each other. At last.

Dang Finnegan, every time my nutball mom sees your face she swoons. She just thinks that you IW's have puppy faces all your lives. I'm really glad your outlook is good. Hey listen, we dogs know how to adapt so I know that your problems aren't going to stop you one iota. That's why so many of us dogs with blogs love ya boy!
