One year later and the pain is still fresh.
One year later and I still miss you.
One year later and the hole in my heart is no smaller.
One year later I am able to remember the lessons I learned.
One year later I am practicing more patience.
One year later I am living more fully.
One year later I am not having any regrets.
One year later I am loving fully for as long as I am able.
One year later I realize that loving the way I loved you is the only way to live.
One year ago Harper died, a piece of my heart died that day too. One year later as much as it hurts I can smile and be thankful for the time we shared.
How can one animal mean so much? Be such a vehicle of learning and a catalyst of self improvement? How does one animal make us laugh, cry, dream, and live more fully? I can't answer these questions, I just know one animal did; Harper.
