Today we would have been celebrating another year Jenny was with us. But instead I’m sitting here missing the hell out of her. I think of my sweet girl and talk to her everyday. When I get to see her in my dreams it’s a blessing. I still can’t even talk about her without crying. And as crazy as it seems I am still waiting for her to come back to me. I just can’t let go. And honestly, I don’t think I ever will. Jenny will always have a piece of my heart and forever be attached to my soul. We are kindred, for life. And I will be here when it’s our time to be together again.
It’s no secret I love animals. And here at our house I try to do al I can so all the earthlings who visit are comfortable, fed and happy. We have a handful of bird feeders around for our flying friends and I’ve been learning so much about the species who come. It’s pretty awesome. And we also have a squirrel feeder so maybe the cuties will stop bombarding the birds spaces, lol. In any case, I leave special treats for them there. We had a box turtle hanging out on the side of our house for awhile but I’m not sure he’s there anymore. I welcome all animals and enjoy seeing them daily. @ashlieredmond was just talking about how we need to surround ourselves with beauty right now. And that’s exactly what I’m doing. Inviting these beautiful creatures to our property so I can continue to be filled with joy. I just love each and every one of them.
Seeing Elliot for the first time was such a joy, despite feeling like shit and wanting to throw up, lol. Those chubby cheeks, soft lips, fair skin, dark eyes, and button nose…my boy was here and he was beautiful. And as I countdown to his 1st birthday, I am filled with so much gratitude. The love I have for him is beyond words. Everything I went through was so worth it to have him by my side.
