This morning I went out and cut a jar of zinnias. It is a simple and unfussy bouquet that I can enjoy indoors.
I have Charlie’s ashes now. His and Abi’s ashes are side by side on my bookshelf.
A Card From The Acupuncture Clinic:
I received a card from the acupuncture clinic where Charlie went for some years. Everyone who worked there as well as the two female vets wrote something about Charlie on the card. I was so touched.
They also wrote that they donated to three different pet charities in Charlie’s honor. Which was wonderful. The best gift they could have given me and Charlie.
I miss my Charlie boy terribly. And I miss singing to him at night as I always did. I miss him laying next to me in this chair.
Grief is so hard. Letting them go is so very hard.
Loss Is Part Of Life:
But loss is part of life. And if you dare to love, then you are going to feel loss at some point. That is unfortunately the price you pay for love.
It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done, saying goodbye to Abi and then Charlie.
My heart is broken, but I’ll go on. Ivy is here to help me struggle through.
My sweet Charlie lives on in my heart.
I love you to the moon and back, Charlie boy.
