I'm Happy Today =D

Thursday, April 28, 2011

"Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity."

- Carl Jung

Today is the first day in over a week I've felt truly happy and at peace. I ran a few errands and found myself actually smiling and chatting with people. Losing Sam Cat truly through me into a tailspin of depression which at the time I could see no end to. Monday I picked up his ashes from our vet's office and spent an hour reminiscing with vet about Sam. That really helped. Having his ashes at home made it final. I know for certain we did everything we could and his death truly was no one's fault. Animal health, just like people's, can be precarious and filled with unknowns. I miss him dearly and always will. But now that the pain has eased, I can remember him and smile. And not break down in tears at his loss.

Thanks for allowing me to share this. I hope all of you are doing well.

With great affection,
~Gayle~

    (Love Carl Jung)
Oh my goodness, I can't believe you're posting this; I was going to send you a Goody, today, and ask how you're doing in regards to Sam. I was thinking about you and Sam, this morning, when my Serena was intertwining my legs.
(I almost lost her a year ago. I'm tearing up.)

My friend has all of her pets ashes and she wants them placed in her coffin when she goes.

How's Gus doing?

I hope this doesn't sound weird; but, I'm glad that you were depressed and that you went through that because I feel it's worse, in the long run, if you try to mask.

I hope you have a Terrific Thursday Gayle ... :-)

  I am sorry to hear about Sam. I am an extreme pet lover and dearly miss mine when they have gone on to Rainbow bridge. I will pray for you to find peace. It's good that the vet had time to visit with you that really helps. Remember Sam will always be in your heart and he most likely love seeing you smile. emoticon
