How do you recover from a deep sadness??
It's not easy, that's for sure.
I've spent a lot of time in my garden (Tyler snapped this one of me...thanks Tyler. It helps to remember these days).
We've spent a lot of time talking about and remembering Lily - what she meant to each one of us. There is something really therapeutic about that.
As I said in my earlier post, Lily was more than just a dog to us. So getting over her will be a process - not something I expect us to wrap up any time soon.
But...there's something sweet and honoring about that. We have loved her well...in life, and now after her life is complete.
The ache in my heart is still there...it's hard to not hear her familiar sounds, or see her in her familiar spots.
But she remains in my heart...in our family's heart. She was a good dog. She was a sweet friend.
I still miss her.
