I Feel Empty Inside

It’s been a long time since I’ve experienced death. You forget the heartache involved until it happens again.

For my kids, this is their first real taste of it. They were so young when my other dogs passed.

While I am still surrounded by three cats and two dogs, there is something missing. It’s as if the family is not complete with my other cat gone.

I am finding it really hard to do anything right now…

I know time will heal, as it did the past.

Yet, I find that uncomforting at the moment.

Time heals because you move on and forget. I don’t want to forget…

Life sucks right now. I find no comfort in the Bible, God, or even my other animals.

So I find myself sitting, waiting, hoping, and praying

For time to heal.

And this sucks.

  1. It’s so very difficult to go through. It helped me to go into the pain and let myself feel it deeply. I didn’t try to forget and move on. I just felt the pain and let it move me along. It’s always there somewhere in the shadows, and now a part of me. But this has helped me to live each day with more love and understanding in the memory of all the sweet pets I have loved and lost along the way.

  2. I’m sorry to hear about your loss. When our cat passed last year, it really hit us hard. I had to think how much we love him. I kept it present tense, still do. We have two new additions since and I always let these two kitties know about him.

    It takes time though.

    Peace and good wishes
