I hope your day has been a gentle one. That is a beautiful list of lovely, unique things you greatly miss about Stormy. It makes me smile, picturing in my mind what an engaging creature she was and how she was very much your girl. It also is not hard to imagine how deeply her loss continues to throb in your heart. I think it is not only their precious individuality and presence--them as a whole--that we miss. But it is very much those singular behaviors, habits, attributes, things like you listed, that pierce our hearts again and again with their absence. The bathroom not feeling right since she's not where she would always be. Such a stark contrast. It sure takes time to adjust. I still sigh and shake my head often at the sweet things that have gone missing here. I trust that strength and comfort enough for each day's need comes your way. Encouragement, too! Hope you're soon able to get to sleep better and can rest.
