My first Christmas without you Jingles, however do I begin? What I would give for just one more moment in time to hold you in my arms once again, and see that dear little face looking up at me. For eighteen wonderful years, you helped me to make it through the good times and bad, you never left my side when I was sick, and you made me realize that I could face any adversity or hardship, because at the end of the day, I knew that I would be coming home to you. I remember when ...you first came to me as a tiny little kitten, I looked into those beautiful eyes of yours, and I knew that you were mine and I was yours. I knew right then and there that we would be intertwined and inseparable through this life and the next. All of the stars aligned, the fates came together, and God in His infinite wisdom, gave you to me for just a little while to love and protect, and I hope I did a good job, because I really did try. It was always about you and keeping you safe, warm, and happy, nothing was more important to me. You were my first to come, and my last to leave, and you always brought such an incredible sweetness and joy to my life and my world. Thank you for letting me know that you are still so close, and that no stopping of a precious little heartbeat could ever keep us apart. The veil is so thin for those who have such a surreal bond and love with such depth. Thank you for choosing me. thank you for loving me, thank you for being my once in a lifetime. Merry First Christmas at the bridge my darling little Jingleberry. Sending so many hugs and kisses wrapped in rainbows and starlight to you my sweet baby. You are so missed, you are so cherished, you are so loved.
