Best Christmas Gift Ever
Sweet Sophie came into my life during the Christmas season 14 years ago. Her first "Mom" decided she did not have time for her, and I asked if I could give her a home--the best question I have ever asked.
This is my first Christmas without her. I had to say goodbye to her last March.
With each passing season and event, I think "Sophie is no longer here to experience this. She will never see another Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, Christmas...." 2012 represents the beginning of an entire year that she won't be on this Earth. My heart hurts.
Sophie, I miss you. I know you are with God now; your Spirit has been freed from a body that was suffering. I know our Spirits will meet again. But my breath still catches when I think of you, I remember those last moments we had together, a song will remind me of you....and I feel your loss, acutely.
I love you, Sophie. There is no one else like you and there never will be. I will carry you in my heart forever.
