October 18, 2012
Today is the first of many anniversaries.  There will be birthdays, a wedding anniversary,
holidays ~ and those days that were special only to us.
Each will hold a touch of sadness, yet each will hold a memory of joy and love.
Dear Poppy ~ my guy ~ we love you, and we miss you so very, very much.
Maggy can often be found now, resting on the night table beside our bed.
She's always liked spending time on a window ledge, though had never chosen
this window ~ now it seems to be her special place ~
keeping Poppy company.
Zoey spent most of her days with Poppy, in his office, curled up in his in-box.
She seemed lost these last few weeks as I worked to dismantle the office area.
Now that his in-box has been moved to my desk,
Zoey is comfortable once again.

  1. Anniversaries and milestones are so difficult. :( Like rocks in a river, the sharp edges dull over time, leaving them more beautiful and less likely to hurt you, but it takes time.

    What a funny picture of Zoey in the inbox. Her fur poking through the wires made us smile.

  4. How lovely that Zoey and Maggy are still sitting with their Poppy Vic - especially Zoey still in "their in box" and Maggy by his photograph.
    Take care.

  10. Continuing to send you all Light and Love, Ann.

    The first year (or two) definitely is the hardest. I wouldn't take your grief away, but I would ease the sharp pain of it, if I could. Soften it.

    Peace and Blessings.

  13. Yes, furries are lost, confused and sad too when someone they love has passed. They can be a comfort in grief.

  24. I hope you know that the whole blogosphere will be here for you, with you, for every one of the days like this one. Hugs

    Is it ok that I think it's funny to say that Zoey is comfortable again in the in box? Because that looks anything but comfortable!

  25. It does no matter if it is a 'first', 'fifth', 'tenth' or whatever. Those special days will hold memories and sadness. Hopefully the memories linger and the sadness wanes.
