2016 has been a year filled with challenges. We learned Yoshi has some kidney issues and our lives have now somewhat been altered to keep him closer to our daily schedules. The importance of our baby getting proper food, exercise, and medication, has made certain activities less viable and certain duties more vital. Despite this, however, we see no reason to give up on him because even with the kidney disease, Yoshi is still a loving and wonderful dog who always helps bring a smile to our faces.
Life is like that. Certain challenges are inevitable. Life will always have its moments of throwing you under the bus or spinning you in a cyclone of unexpected events. But in the end, whether its the uncertainty of finding a house to call our home, or the distance of being in another country, if one works on it together as a couple, one can find even unbeatable things... surmountable.
(Not certain that's an actual word, but yeah.)
Rocky is all the way at Singapore today for a business trip. I'm here with our dog, Yoshi, at the BGC unit where his office is to watch the fort. But despite the many miles of distance between us, I know we are connected and still anchored to each other - certain that no matter how challenging the trials the world will throw at us, we will be facing it together and there to support each other.
And that's what love it.
