One Sad Day

My best friend of 18 years left today... I held her in my arms and told her how much I loved her. She left peacefully. She gave us 18 years of incredible happiness. For me, she was my closest companion and at times I thought she was my soul mate, because she had the ability to give such great comfort.

My Girl

My girl, she's almost 18 now and a day doesn't pass when I realize that she wont be with me forever. Everyday when I walk in that door, I look for her.  She's been my side-kick now for so long.

When I define "me", she's a part of it. When she's gone, a part of me will be gone.  I had run some errands in the 108 degree heat and came home to fix something to eat. I felt this little "nudge" on my leg, a cold little nose, she's done that for years and years. I'm not sure what it means, I think it's a sign of affection, a little touch that says "it's you and me!"

The day will come when I will no longer feel that little nudge, and all the money in the world, and all the wishing I could do and tears I could cry won't bring it back... it's priceless.
