I never thought I would survive after burying you, but ~ I did.
I never thought I'd get through those first days, weeks and months, but ~ I did.
I never thought I would be able to endure the first anniversary of your death, but ~ I did.
I never thought tomorrow would be different, but ~ it was.
I never thought I would stop crying for you, but ~ I have.
I never thought that I would ever sing again, but ~ I have.
I never thought the pain would "soften," but ~ it has.
I never thought I would care if the sun shone again, but ~ I do.
I never thought I would be able to entertain again, but ~ I have.
I never thought I would be able to control my grief, but ~ I can.
I never thought I could function without medication again, but ~ I can.
I never thought I'd smile again, but ~ I do.
I never thought I would laugh out loud again, but ~ I do.
I never thought I would look forward to tomorrow, but ~ I do.
I never thought I'd reconcile your death, but ~ I have.
I never thought I would be able to create that "new normal," but ~ I have.
I never thought I'd want to go on living after you died, but ~ I do.
Always missing you,
always loving you,
and thinking of you daily,
with a smile on my face ~
and tears in my heart.

HI SHABBA LOU HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
WOW What a day! Luna smiles and snuggles up next to her little man as they fall back asleep they relive the day and his party...
Knowing is was a special morning when Luna lifted up her head, as she was pondering she thoughts as she heard the faint whispers of all our little ones, and a smile came upon her face … she knew we were all getting ready for another birthday at the bridge, but Luna knew this one had to be as special!.
So with the sun shining and the help of a few friends she positioned the clouds to grace the sky as beautifully and softly as they could, as soft and fluffy as the little white clouds could be, … but right in the center she left a clearing, that way Miss Carole could look up and know that were watching her, and all his brothers and sisters too.
As Luna was busy preparing a feast fit for a king who walks through the swinging doors to the kitchen but Shabba and Buster wearing an apron and a smile, she can’t refuse those beautiful eyes and says ok you can help me but no sampling … They was ecstatic, Shabba surely thought Luna or Ebony would push him right out of the kitchen but she just smiled and went on her way letting them each sample a few tasty treats. His eyes looked on with excitement as Luna pulled a huge Turkey from the oven with all the trimmings … She looked at Shabba and Buster and said, “No Samples, Not until it’s carved”. Well you never saw a man sit so much like a gentleman waiting … Luna cut of a piece especially for him and told him ok, and gave one to Buster too … Ok, time for you to go home Shabba and get dressed, I put something on your pillow for you to wear … with that he licked his lips, gave his sweetie a big kiss, smiled at his sisters and brother, and was off on his way home to prepare for the party. Ebony and Maggie looked at Luna and said, “You have a real soft spot for him,” as she looked up their was a radiance in her eyes and a great big smile appeared on her face … she turned her head and with all the love in her heart she prepared all the finishing touches.
Shabba so excited about the day took the scenic route walking past the huge lake and stream toward home … when he got there on his pillow as a beautiful crown … as he picked it up it was as light as a feather but sparkled like a thousand stars in the sky … he also had a crisp cotton loose shirt and a pair of snappy pants and a vest … he looked like royalty! All of a sudden their was a knock on his door … Yes it was Ebony making sure he was ready … and they were off on their way.
The day was so bright, from a distance all who were waiting for him knew he was coming … you see the crown was special, it was made from all sweet thoughts and dreams, kind wishes and our never ending love … they carry it with them always.
As Shabba and Ebony approached Lunetta’s it was transformed to a castle, tall pillars, lots of green vines that twinkled like fire flies and a cool breeze surrounded them … When they entered all their friends and family were there … in the center of the room was a huge table filled with an amazing feast; “Turkey, stuffing, sting bean casserole, sweet potatoes, white potatoes whipped into a creamy mash, golden gravy, corn and veggies, … his mouth started to water” … All our little angels took their seats … Luna transformed the patio to a banquet hall, floating above was sheer crapes of silk and satin, linen to block the rays but letting the light in, and although it was daylight the sky twinkled like the stars in the heaves … Their plates were filled and soon their tummies too … They walked along the star studded path along the beach with was shaded by trees, they danced and played in the sunlight, their was a special glow that surrounded the rainbow bridge. … “It was our love and they could all feel it! When the day wound down and the stars swept through the sky …their was a feeling of overwhelming joy … as if they knew and could feel the love we share even still, every lasting and forever growing.
As Luna lifted her head she saw Shabba Lou smiling, she snuck away to prepare him a breakfast feast … while he slept on the balcony of Lunetta’s the sun rays warmed his soul and the cool crisp wind from the water left him in a slumber state, until his nose started twitching … when he opened his eyes there was his girl setting the breakfast table, as he gently hopped up he smiled … as they look at one another they knew … “a love time could stand still for … and it surrounds them even still”.
Carole, you know in your heart they will always be there to watch over you. Only a few people I have met have ever given to me what you have, I thank you from the bottom of my heart, your friendship and caring ways means the world to me, to us! Many hugs and moonlit wishes, may each and every one come true. Your friends, Luna & her mom Nadine

but rather openings where our loved ones
shine down to let us know they are happy."

Carole -- Shabba Lou certainly was a very lucky dog to be so very loved and cherished. And the years of love and joy that you gave to him is the everlasting gift that he will always carry with him forever in his heart. He is most definitely a lucky little dog to have been blessed with a loving Mom like you (and I know Shabba would emphatically agree!). And if he could, I am sure Shabba would tell you that throughout his life... YOU were his greatest gift of all! May the wonderful, happy memories of your beloved Shabba Lou always bring comfort to your heart and a lifetime of smiles to your face. My thoughts are with you today, and I wish you well.

I Love You Mom!
Mom's smiles can brighten any moment,
