Rest in Peace, Sweet Girl (Day 254)







It’s been a rough weekend. But hey, I’m still sober! Being sober, I have given myself the ability to truly grieve my beloved greyhound. I’m not numbing my feelings, getting sloppy drunk, and crying. I have cried a lot of course, but these are therapeutic tears, not booze-soaked ones. One day at a time, I’m getting through all of this. One day at a time.

    • Thank you, Sherry. I was lucky to have Grace in my life for six years (she was a couple months shy of turning 10). I thought I’d have her at least a couple more, but the universe had other plans.

    • Hope you are doing ok! It took me a really long time to get used to not hearing the click clack of claws on the floor. Your Grace is having fun running along in doggie heaven, I am sure. I believe there is such a place 🙂

      • Thank you, Annie. Hanging in there. Just found out that one of my cats has an inoperable tumor in his chest, and his time is very limited. When it rains, it pours! But I miss my girl like crazy…<3

  1. I’m sorry I missed this post. Even more sorry to read of your loss. Grace was a beauty. I’m facing losing my little girl in the very near future too. It’s hard. So hard. And yet we know drinking won’t make anything better.

    I hope this finds you smiling.
