Oh, Annette ~ This is all a part of the process, and I wish I could change it for you. When the protective bubble of the shock of our losses begins to lift, the grief sneaks in at the most unexpected times. It can really smack us in the face some days. It's a tremendous emotional roller coaster, and sometimes we just have to hang on for dear life. Of course you want her back! We all understand how lonely and empty you feel. It's a vacuum like no other. One day, when the time is right, you will meet another best friend to spend your days with. You will form a new bond, and your special girl will never, ever be pushed out of the way. If anything, forming a new friendship can make the first one that much more special because you realize that that was your first friend who taught you so much and who prepared you for every friend you will ever meet in life, human and animal. I'm sending virtual hugs of understanding and comfort your way today. I hope you can feel them.
My heart is battered and bruised, but I will not let it break. It holds such precious cargo, I must protect it now. (Susie Squillions)
