Mutti, what a beautiful post. It is going to be 3 years for my Teddy on Dec. 6th. He was Catholic, I am Jewish and my Daughter had a Conversion a year ago at a Bible Church. I believe we are all going to the same place, just taking different paths to get there. So, she invited me to a Celebration they are going to have at Church on Dec 6th for Christmas and Chanukah and I thought that would be a perfect day to go to show her I support what she does even though it broke my heart. A heart does heal in time. Teddy had made 97 visits to me (I logged them) and now almost none. What I want to say is the load does become lighter and the Memories of CC do become lighter it just take some a little longer than others. I heard an expression once, Life is for the living! Do we want to just survive or do we want to thrive. You are doing a beautiful job on both counts!
Teddy ~In our hearts forever~ATTITUDE is EVERYTHING
