I find that the holidays bring up the subject of grief and loss and really magnifies the horror of not having our babies with us.  Every holiday since March marks another kind of anniversary without my Sherry and Daisy.  All of the holidays just seems to bring up even more sadness and sense of loss.  I still can't really believe that Sherry is gone and it's been 3 months since she died tragically in a great deal of pain.  My guilt is enormous that I didn't get help for her until it was too late.  I hope she can forgive me.

Hi Rena.  You are so right.  This year when we drive to our old home town for a holiday, it will be the first time we are going without Pepe since we moved away.  I know the trip will bring a lot a memories of him sitting on the lap of whoever was the passenger, as my husband and I took turns driving.  We didn't let him sit on the driver's lap. 

I guess he should have been in a pet seat belt that's a whole other topic....

I pray that your guilt will subside over your dear Sheery.  You did not know it was that serious.  I think we all have some guilt over our pets and "second guess" ourselves.  But the thing to remember is how much you loved Sherry and Daisy too.  Take good care.  Sharon

Dear Sharon:

  Thank you so much for your post.  I can see how loved your pepe was too and that you are grieving for him very much.  Everything in our lives seems totally different now.  Holidays, anniversary days are all painful because the bring up so many old memories and the fact that these babies are not with us and share any special days with us again.

   I'm working on dealing with my guilt feelings so I can start trying to find my way to the stage of remembering the good times and not only the last painful moments.   I wish you well and thank you for your kind response.  God bless you and keep you close to Him.

Dear Rena

I am so sorry for the loss of your Sherry and Daisy. I know how hard it is without them. I lost my cat Cheeseburger on May 4, 2008. I miss my boy so very much.

Holidays for me used to be time off from work and that time was spent with my Cheeseburger. This long 3-day 4th of July weekend has me missing my boy and wishing he was here.

I am thankful for the 10 years we were together. Cheese gave me more love and friendship than anyone I have ever known.

I do know that our babies love us and are watching over us. They are pure love and that love never leaves us.

Your Sherry and Daisy know how much you love them. As difficult as it is to not have them here anymore, their spirit, energy and love lives in your heart forever.

Holiday's are pretty rough without them. Riefer's birthday was Halloween, so the first, 2006, without him, I could barely function. Christmas was hard too, without my little man. Now, Blue is gone and I've gone through the first holiday without her. It was okay and I'm okay, until I get home & don't stay busy, then I start to look around & think and get sad. One day at a time.
