Annabelle's Antics

Momma doesn't open up this cabinet
very much (can you tell by the dustbunnies?)
so when she did I jumped right into action.
I wanted to JUMP INTO the cabinet
but I was a good girl and just looked.

Gimme that!

The kitties got a nice gift this year
from their Aunt Nancy and here
is Ping trying out playing with one
of the toys.

C. July 2013


It's been 41 months or 1249 days today.
This photo is from some of the last photos
I took of her before...before life as I knew it
would be irreparably changed forever.
I see now that Grief is something that one never
gets over, you simply learn to live with it, but
it never leaves you. It changes you,
and you have to learn to adjust to it's ebbs
and flows and title waves.
For me, I have to mark time. I have to keep track of it
It's my nature to be pragmatic and count the steps.
I used to think each day was one day more
where she was removed from my daily life.
But I've since come to see it as I'm one day
closer to joining her where she is.
Not in a maudlin sense but in a progression of my
Journey. She's up ahead of me on the pathway,
just around the corner which I cannot see around,
but she's there, and waiting. She is waiting for me.
It will be such a joyful reunion.
One day.
But until then I simply miss her.
My heart has a emptiness inside of it.
It still beats and it still loves.
The aching and the sadness have lessen by time
But the absence of the heart
that will never stop.
Not until my heart stops beating
and I find the end of my pathway
to the one thing that means everything to me.

I love you Abby
to the Moon and back...
I love you.
