You folks are amazing and wonderful. We really are a family here that cares about each other in good times and tough times and I love you all for that. To thank each of you individually would take all day, so I’ll just give you all my thanks and hugs here…been a tough week, but, we all have those. I have a home and I don’t have to worry every day and night that a bomb might drop on me and my family. I can leave my home safely. I have water and electricity…24/7. I’m free to do a job that I love to do. I am not persecuted for my religion or lack of one.
I miss my mom and my incredible gentle giant, Simi. I’ll miss them everyday until I’m gone from this earth. The house is eerily quiet today and I have so much more space…she had her stuff all over the place..big beds everywhere…so she could be with the family wherever we were….no the space where they used to be , just makes the house echo. I need a rug there, or something, I thought to myself this morning. The vet that came to put her down yesterday asked me if I would like to have a paw print from her…I burst out crying because moments before, as I sat waiting for them to come for her, I kicked myself for NOT having the foresight to have something like this at the ready. I looked online and all I saw were plasters that I had to cook first, then cool. I had no time nor inclination for all that! So when they asked me if I’d like a paw print of her in remembrance, well…I was so happy and touched.
For my mom…If I still lived in CT at the shore, I would be down at the jetty at our beach, with a bundle of daisies for her. I loved to do that…just go down and talk to her there. But, no shore in AZ! So I pretty much just know that she’s here with me and I talk to her and I hear her voice and see her smile and feel her extraordinary presence around me…all the time. So, its ok…I celebrate her life and don’t dwell so much on the fact that she’s not here. I’d really love it, though, if those that are reading this, would just kiss and hug your parents…tell them how much you love them and how much they mean to you. Life happens quickly and we all need to live a life with no regrets. You will put a smile on their face and that’s what it’s all about.
I have my kiddos to tutor today. I can hardly wait. It’s where I should be…doing good and taking my mind off things…then I may just go get a pedicure. Seriously. Love you all. truly I do. I’ll be ok. Time is a wonderful healer. Put this on the last thread..but quick draw had a new thread up already…. This is for my mom, my dear Sims, and all my TOD family. Hugs.
