Holding the Memories


***
What I have found in holding onto my friend,
GRIEF, is that I am holding onto her memories.
I am re-living moments that were important to me
and to Abby.
At any given moment a memory will
flood over me and I will feel like I

am drowning.
But the fullness in my throat passes.
The deep, red-hot pain in my chest eases.
The tears slow and I simply
remember her.

***

I love you to the Moon
and back...
Again
and 
again
and again.

We are joining PepiSmartDog for

I am very thankful for one fluffy little
tuxedo manx granced my life.

  3. I understand too; although, honestly, I try to not have memories because they are so painful. I know your way is better. Hugs to you this day as you remember your treasured Abby.

  7. I've been trying to order pictures of Georgia. I break down in tears every single time. Part of me knows that once I make that order...it means that's it. I understand.

    I totally understand. I lost my beautiful tuxedo girl Suzy 17 years ago but she will remain forever in my heart. I know one day we will meet again. Our dear little ones are always in our hearts.
