Abby's candles : LINK
She would always got up into this chair to sleep during the morning hours.
Sun came streaming in from the picture windows in the
front dining room and she loved that light and warmth.
You can see dark patches on the towel, it is all Abby's fur.
I simply picked up Abby's little fuzzy throw and towel and just preserved it
just as you see it in this picture.It's now with all the things that had Abby all over them.
Look who is now sitting in Abby's chair!
Gracie is checking me and the camera out.
Just like Abby used to do.
I so miss seeing that face as I prepare a meal from the kitchen.
I bought a new throw to replace what Abby had been sitting on.
I just had to change it out, new.
It took me a few weeks to do that, but I had to change it.
Everytime I would look in this corner from the kitchen it would
cause pangs in my heart.
I am glad to see a kitten in the chair again.
Even though my heart misses Abby sitting there
I was glad Gracie decided to set up shop.
So times moves us along, whether we want to go or not. This is another step along that journey without Abby now. Letting her place be taken up by another. I will always in my mind's eye, see her here, but it is good to see Gracie taking up an empty spot and filling it. I need that too. But, I find too that it is just too hard to turn loose of all the things Abby, and yet I know I will. In some ways, the choice will be made for me, like finding Gracie in Abby's spot. All the time Abby was alive, no one got up in this chair, no one. Now, Gracie did.
Moving me along.
Today Boo is going back for a recheck of blood work.
We won't know for a few days what the results are but I am just a little on edge.
