I know I’ve failed. Sucks, because I was doing so well, but I’ll try again next month when things aren’t so hectic. In fact, I was silly to try it this month with all the goings-on, including things I both planned and didn’t plan for, but such is life.
I want to thank you all for your birthday wishes, and your sympathies regarding Layla. She’ll be missed very much; I can’t begin to explain how much my heart hurts to know she’s gone. We’re having her cremated so she can always be with us, or we’ll find somewhere that has all-day sunlight to scatter her ashes. I know she’s in a better place now, and no longer in pain, and I know that it was a decision we had to make. The pain is, however, indescribable, especially if you haven’t lost anyone/anything close to you before. My heart still aches thinking about her (yeah, it’s only been a couple of days). It’ll get better, but I’ll never forget her. She was so beautiful.
