Grief

I feel like I go through all these stages multiple times a day, ha. It's the worst. It's been about five months since I went through this loss and I still struggle with it daily.

It's a very hard process that many of us understand. It will get better it just take time; differing amounts for each person.

Grief isn't a linear process, I think its pretty common to feel that way. I've certainly felt that. Its been a couple years since I lost my Mae, but there will still be times when I'm overwhelmed with feelings about her. There isn't a right or wrong way to feel <3

Just lost my two Goldens, 17 days apart. My first boy I knew was going because he had thyroid carcinoma cancer and survived but the cancer came back a little over 2 years later, late summer, and went to Rainbow Bridge last month, before Thanksgiving. His brother, who I had no clue was sick, started going downhill quickly days after his brothers death. It was so sad! I went to the vet then another vet, and just couldn't take it anymore. He was so confused, bumping into things hitting his beautiful head, and hardly got up anymore. It was and is very heartbreaking. I think about them all the time.

It's been almost 9 years since I posted this here.I did it after I lost all 3 of my girls over a 6 month period back in 2010, a 12 , 4 and 17 year old. I wasn't sure I would get thru it. The loss of JOY, my Heart and Soul dog, overnight to Hemangiosarcoma was the worst thing I ever had to go through .But recently we took Jordan and Penny to the beach for JOY's rose ceremony. It's been 9 years since I lost JOY and I can finally say that the anger is gone. Now I feel lucky and grateful and blessed to have had her in my life. I will always miss her and the grief has filled up the hole that losing her made in me. It is a part of me now and in a strange way, keeps her close. I will never get over losing her but I honor our love by loving Jordan and Penny now and trying to give them the same wonderful life that Joy and I shared. She was an Angel here on earth. This beach is where I decided to keep puppy JOY after I rescued her from the pound. Life goes on, somehow it just does. Bless all of you going through you own loss now, it's the price we pay for loving them so much.

Love is patient, love is kind.
Love never gives up or loses faith.
Love is always hopeful and endures through every trial.
