BIG tears

It's been almost 3 years and I just can't shaking my head.

Why did this happen?

Why did he have to leave?

Why did we leave the window open?

Why did he have to get hurt?

Why didn't my neighbors think too look?

Why didn't they notice the screen on our front porch?

Why did this happen?

I'm so lucky to have found him breathing, as to (selfishly) get one last goodbye in, but good God that was just a terrible feeling and sight.  Lucky might not be the best word, but thankful for sure.

I can't forget him.

I cannot ever ever ever forget him.

I can't shake the memory of finding him.

Or all the happy memories/pictures that we have of him.

It hurts A LOT and it breaks my heart that it had to happen like this.

We loved him, so much.

So, as I sit here, with BIG tear welling up in my eyes/rolling down my face, I just wanted you to remember him too.

We love and miss you SO MUCH, Oscar.

Oh hunny, I'm so sorry. You were such a big source of comfort to me with Bridgit. I will always remember that. I wish you hadn't of had this experience though. ::(
I am so sorry for your loss. It doesn't matter how much time elapses... these little creatures leave a brand on our hearts.

Oscar seems like he was a real sweetie. Hug.

So sorry. :( :( :( *I* totally get it. Almost as hard as losing them is trying to justify our feelings to those who DON'T get it. :(

My girl died from cancer six months ago, but it was horrible in it's own way. I miss her every single day. At night I go to bed and wish there was some way she could be back with me. I look at pictures and seeing her smooshy face makes me smile and breaks my heart at the same time. I am in a sort of denial that I will never have her with me again.

Hugs and healing to you!!!

Hi! I found your blog through another blog and I noticed that you too are on the baby journey. My husband and I have been at it for about a year now, but we are just starting to really get serious about it. Wishing luck to you and your family!
So, so sorry this had to happen. I agree -- it doesn't matter how much time goes by, some things don't seem to fade. Hugs to you.

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
