Today she would be 13

I'm in tears as I write this, today would have been jane's 13th birthday and I can't quit thinking of her and crying. I can go through a few days without crying but I make up for it on a day like today. Sometimes I miss her so much it literally hurts deep. I know nothing will bring her back, it's been 2 months without her and I still miss her like crazy - life is different now. Isn't this supposed to get easier?

In honour of her birthday we are going for DQ ice cream, something we did every year for her birthday ... Do have one for her today if you can!!

Here are some photos I rounded up if her favourite pass time ... Fishing ...

It does get easier, but it takes a long time. If I look through the photo album I made of my first Cardi (I do it on his birthday every year!), I still cry, nine years later......

My dogs wish they had known about this tradition. I will have to mark it on the calender so they can remember Jane next year.
Try not to cry too much. I'll whisper to Nan that she needs to come into heat soon.

It is hard... I lost Molly girl 3 months ago, shy of her 13th, and Ben just 2 weeks ago at 14. Molly was my heart dog, and Ben was my wise one, the teacher. If I linger too long on their loss I turn into a puddle of tears. I look back at photos of them and recall happier, healthier days and know that even though I am a heartbroken mess, their spirits are free - happy and healthy. If nothing else, I look at my Jane, 3 years young and can approach each day a little less heavy hearted.

I've got a pain in my heart for you, gal...
One day, I'm going to be feeling similar despair when I have to say goodbye to my treasure. I'm going to be a wreck.

Going to enjoy something in Jane's honor today!
