Sweet Girl, I am sending you such a huge hug from the east coast... (((((((((HUG))))))))))))). Take your time- everyone grieves in a different way, for different lengths of time. And remember- some days will be better than others...
I lost my Sadie almost 9 YEARS ago to the day & I STILL get sad or even pissed off sometimes- especially if something reminds me of her. When she passed:
1. I didn't vacuum for the LONGEST time. I could have made a huge afghan with all of it. Even to this day, I check for her fur when I'm cleaning out the heating vents...
2. I left her poop (which was quite frozen) in the yard for such a long time! I was so worried someone would say something!
3. I left her noseprints on every window. They stayed on my dodge neon's windows until we sold her a year ago.
But now I can look back and (usually) smile at my memories of her, but it took a LOOOONG time. I think that talking and writing about her, and making a scrapbook of her life, donating her remaining meds, etc. really helped me out in my own grieving process/journey...
Keep writing about sweet, beautiful Tesia!!! I'll be thinking of you!!!
