One Year On

I cannot believe its been a year since Yogi died. I think its been one of the hardest years of my life to date. The little man left such a hole in our hearts.
Lesley, thank you so much for remembering us. I think of you often too, I think of everyone who is going or who has been through this hell. 
As I look at this picture, I feel a deep sadness and loss. The other day I found some hair that I cut from his tail the day we had to say goodbye. Does it get any easier? Yes, it does, but that feeling in my heart will never heal when I allow myself to go there.
Yogi, I miss you Little Bear.

Great to hear from you Fiona - albeit in sad circumstances. It doesn't get a great deal easier, does it? Occasionally you might have a couple of hours where you don't think, but it's rare.

Look after yourself, I'm sure Yogi's looking out for you. How's Larry getting on?

Oh, Fiona, I am so sorry. It does get easier after a while... Thinking of you on this sad day.

My heart goes out to you, Fiona. I'm not sure if it gets easier, or if we just begin to "normalize" the hole we feel in our hearts. I so know what you're talking about in experiencing deep pain and loss when going to that place in your heart where Yogi resides.

Hugs to you and your family. How is your Mum doing?

I've only just spotted this, about a month late. That's a great picture of Yogi. Hope you're doing OK today.
