My Birthday Letter to Joey

The first day I met Joey

Joey and Kona on their 2nd birthday
Joey Born on 11/11/2007

My Dearest Joey, How has it been that three years have passed and now you are 3 years old???? It was only yesterday that I held you like a baby and put my face in your soft soft fur and amazed at your puppiness. I remember asking myself if I would be a good mommy, I admit I was scared of getting you!!! But look what happened! You rescued me from the low depths of sadness after my mom passed away. You brought me back to life and for that I would never be able to repay you, except give you my undying love ! Joey, words cannot express the love I feel for you and I give you my promise to love you forever, until the day I die. Thank you for showing me what its like to live again!!!! Happy 3rd Birthday my sweet boy!!!! I Love You!!!!

Oh and I found this quote on

The secret to life is to enjoy the passage of time.

Joeys letter to Mommy,
Dear mommy, I couldnt believe my eyes when it was you who came to pick me up!!!! How lucky I am that you would hold me close and smell my breath which I never knew why you would do that!!!! You brought me to a home that was safe and warm and I made lots of friends and had lots of toys!!! You are always there for me mommy and I love your scritchy scratches behind my ears, and I love it when you help me hunt for lizards, and I love it when we go to the beach!!! And now, today Im 3 years old???? Just like my brother Kona across the street??? How lucky am I to have such a wonderful family and a little sister in Kealani! Thank you mommy for loving me and Ill love you forever!!! OK! Lets go to the park already!!!!!! Woof!!!!!

Happy birthday, Joey!

And Val, it is so good to see you back here. I feel like an old friend has suddenly knocked on my door. I missed you while you've been gone but understand the need to take a break every now and then.

Take your time, but I look forward to hear from you again soon.
