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.
Today, my cat died in my daughter’s arms. She had renal disease, as I posted
My house is too quiet. My heart is too wounded. You love so much, and it hurts so much. Yet life goes on when you don’t want it to. In sum, life sucks at these moments.
WHAT I MISS ABOUT MY KITTY
I miss her meowing for milk every time I opened the fridge door.
I miss her meowing for food.
I miss her laying on plastic bags, cardboard boxes, clothes, and whatever else was on the floor.
I miss her purring on my lap.
I miss petting her.
I miss having to worry about putting food up because she would jump up and eat it.
I miss her curiosity.
I miss her darting out an open door every time one opened.
I miss finding her on the front porch at 3 am cause she darted out and got left.
I miss her catching our mice.
I miss her sitting outside on the back patio.
I miss her helping me roll out.
I miss her helping me do handstands.
I miss her helping me workout.
I miss her. Period.
Happy New Year!
May this year be full and bright.
Wishing everyone much joy and happiness on this blessed day!
Pelican Lakes Windsor, CO
For three years now, it has become a tradition for me and the kids to run a 5k on Thanksgiving Day. We ran the Pelican Lakes Turkey Trot 5k in Windsor, CO. It was fun. Both me and my daughter got 3rd place in our age divisions and won a pie. It was cold, but the run was good and challenging.
Lots to be thankful for this day, including the ability to run. This race benefited
Athletes in Tandem, an organization dedicated to helping athletes of all abilities compete in outdoor activities.
