My Sweetest Angel, My Inspiration

My darling girl
showstopper
supermodel queen
alpha bitch
best friend
confidante

You've been gone one year.
I long to touch that gorgeous coat you were so proud to wear.
One year I've survived without you
despite my urge to check out.
I do survive, because you would want me to.
You are my inspiration,
my spirit within.
I've done more than survive this year,
I've lived it.



I miss you so much,
I carry you with me everywhere I go.
I live in the moment as much as possible.
I don't worry about what will come tomorrow
because I have today to celebrate
the way you always did
with that grinning smile
and shining eyes.



And when the storms come sweeping in
stealing away late afternoons and early evenings,
I remember how nothing can hurt us.
Not lightning, not thunder,
not Lyme disease, not high triglycerides,
not cancer, not death.
We are too pure for that
and we dance on the energy of love
where we will be until we reach the circle's end
and you come back to me again.

That is so sweet...did you write that?? So touching!! And what a beautiful dog. My friend Erin is still really hurting after having to put her dog down 6 months ago. I'm gonna email her the link to this post if you don't mind. Thought it might help her to know there are others sharing her pain. Losing an animal is so hard.

you're like butter to me

Just a Lovable Party Girl
Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
