2008 that is. jacques is resting peacefully in my frozen backyard. sigh. that was hard. very hard. he was ready to go though and it was instant. i mean that literally. my sister is at peace with her decision but misses him terribly already. i am already not looking forward to 2009- i have a feeling it's going to be a tougher year overall for everyone.
but we will all get through it. we really don't have a choice. we will all suck it up and get through it. if i can dig a hole in zero degree weather in december- we can all pull together and get through the tough times. and perhaps we can even laugh and smile sometimes :)
here's to hoping that each of us can enjoy the holiday of our choice- whether it's one day or 12 or whatever. enjoy being with people who love us and friends- human and/or furry. cheers!
