I'm deeply saddened as I'm sharing this post but I think it is good therapy to get things out. CJ is no longer with us and it was definitely a sad beginning to the New Year.
I wanted to share this because I will always have very fond memories of her. She was a loyal companion to us for 13 years and part of our family.
She spent her days and evenings with us and always brought great joy. CJ was not a quiet girl and so the house is going to seem a lot more empty without her.
I'm sure her counterparts are saddened by this as well. She was very close with her brother Harvey and I know she would want him to take over as the official spokesperson/taste tester for the blog.
CJ taught me some important lessons and I guess it's things I really already knew but sometimes I guess needed to be reminded of.
This may sound a little cliché but live life to the fullest, enjoy every moment as life will always bring you challenges. But most of all never give up on doing what brings you happiness.
So I will keep pursing my blogging goals and will always remember CJ as an important part of my life experiences.
This is CJ hanging out on Fire night. One of her favorite things to do.
Here are a few of her other favorite spots:
On the deck by the heater table and she also loved hanging out in the gazebo with us.
CJ definitely had a fulfilling life and I can never feel bad about that.
Yes, it still hurts but they say time heals everything and I want to just start remembering the great moments we shared together.
Love you always my dear CJ...And if there really is a Rainbow Bridge I look forward to seeing you there.
