Monday Morning

Last week was hard... I miss my Mowgli so very much. Not a day has gone by that I haven't cried for him. I'm sure this will continue for a very long time. But now it's Monday, last week is over and it's time to get up and live life again. I need to create, paint, knit, crochet, cook and sew. I need to go on adventures again, I need to explore and find some beauty in the world.

I can't wait until spring, where trees start to blossom and flowers start to grow. It's been very dreary all week. I'm lucky to have wonderful people in my life who have given me some cheer. Brad and my aunt both gave me some beautiful flowers which I keep in my room to keep it looking bright and happy.

It's time for me to work extra hard, and save up to get a vehicle and place to live... being in this house reminds me that he is gone. Where I would normally hear his footsteps I hear nothing... where he would normally be playing, I see nothing. And that is driving me a bit crazy.
It is time to get out of my parents house.. and start living a new life.

  6. I was crying half an hour ago upon reading your previous entries about Mowgli. For some strange reason i feel the longing because i also have a furry pal i love so much and i know one day i have to face that i'm going to lose him, too.

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts and positivity. I wish you all love and happiness!

    *Warm hugs*

  7. Dear Rachael, I came across your post about Mowgli last week, I literally sobbed as I read your story.

    Yesterday my world came crashing down unexpectedly and we lost our beloved rabbit during surgery....I still cannot believe it.

    Your emotional and raw grief is so real to me. I am in that place right now....I just wanted to reach out and give you a hug from one grieving girl to another.

    They touch our lives and bring such love it's devastating when they leave...

    Love and light Carly x
