It has been one year since my sweet angel, Anela, took her last breath.
I still cry- alone because people do not understand the depth of my loss.
They say it is just a dog, that says more about them than me.
They say I have been fine, that is their lack of perception.
They say it has even a year, that is their privilege to escape grief for so long.
I have dreaded today, much like I did the day Anela passed; only now I understand, worrying did not prolong the inventible it simply took away from the present.
I will always talk about Anela because the smiles outweigh the tears and it is truly the way her memories will live on.
I use to say these three (3) affirmations to Anela every day:
- You are beautiful.
- You are powerful.
- You are loved.
I have not spoken them since she passed, but perhaps they will help someone today. 💔J
