Why should a dog, a horse, a rat, have life,
And thou no breath at all?

I am here...
It's only 7:14AM here and I was just about to look into how you were doing when this post popped up. I know that there's nothing I can say and nothing I can really do for you, but I am here and I really DO know EXACTLY how you feel... and in my personal opinion this is the "unkindest cut of all."

There is no answer to your question. There is no reason. It will never make sense. It's all just an elaborate accident, all of it, all of life. If it's of any help at all, the final answer for me turned out to be, "Why not?"

Re: I am here...
Thanks for understanding. Today is the first anniversary of his death.

Re: I am here...
Silly Girl... I know this is a day when you won't be thinking real clearly, but I need to tell you that I KNOW what day it is. Because I have been where you are I made a note on my calendar when I first met you to remind myself to be here on this day. The "Firsts" are the absolute worst. The others will be hard but this one will be the worst. It will never be quite this bad again.

I take it you did take the day off at least? (I made this icon this morning. Steal it if you would like to use it too.)

Re: I am here...
Thanks for the support! I did take the day off, and I am glad I did, because I am relieved at not having to be up for other people.

I'm thinking about you today. It's not going to be easy, but I was expecting a really tough day for the anniversary and I was surprised at how "not totally horrible" i felt. it helped to be around people who loved me and LOVED me a lot so I didn't have to be shiny and happy.

hugs.

I'm so, so sorry about your sweet boy. I can only imagine how you feel, and it makes me shudder. God bless you, darlin'. You and your family will be in my prayers today and always.

There's a commercial on TV for Duracell, of all things...I am sure you know it. I think of you and W every time I see it. I get the feeling he's so proud of you!
