GotcHa Day Number 12

One of my very favorite photos of my beloved Angel Abby.

Today is ... hard.
Today is... in memory of Abby's Gotcha Day from 2005.
It would have been and I suppose it still is
12 years ago.
12 years seems like such a short period, 
and yet a long one too.
I don't know how time tricks us like that.
But, I will always remember,
that old cliche about 
eyes meeting from across the room
and suddenly,
you just knew your world had changed.
It happened to me and Abby.
I will never ever forget it Abby.
I will always be so eternally grateful that it happened.
I will always be grateful and happy for you.

In French, I’ve read, you don’t say I miss you.  
You say Tu me manques, which means you are missing from me.


  1. Oh I'm a bit teary eyed. I guess the French say it best. Be happy that Abby happened in your life.

  2. Gotcha days are hard ones. Lots of purrs to you today.

  3. the French express it so much better. Anniversaries are hard, but that is a beautiful photo full of the good memories.

  4. Sending Light and love and purrs on Abby's 12th Gotcha Day. We can see why that photo is one of your favourites, it's beautiful. Hugs to you. ♥

  5. you are missing from me that is just beautiful
    Hugs to Angel Abby
    Madi and mom

  6. Big hugs, gentle purrs and soft nose bumps!

  7. That is indeed a wonderful portrait of your girl. Twelve years can go by so quickly; any period of time can. So much can be done in that time, and so much left undone.

  8. The love goes on, no matter the time.

  12. I've never heard that French saying but it is so beautiful! These anniversary dates show us how time flies but the heart never forgets.

  13. These anniversaries are always hard once our special fur children cross the Bridge. Our thoughts are with you today.

    We are slowly reconnecting with our friends since Mom Paula retired and hope to see you more often.

  15. These anniversaries are always difficult. We hope all the joy Abby gave you brings more smiles than tears. Sending you lots of purrs.....
