My Angel Cami...
You would have been 9 years old today. I feel cheated for not being able to spend your senior years with you. I never got to see your beautiful face turn gray. You were forever being told how beautiful you were. I have no doubt that would not have changed had you been given the chance to grow older gracefully. You already had plenty of wisdom but I know you were always a thinker and would have continued to thrive gaining more knowledge.
The vase that came to us from the vet containing a single red rose the day after we said our goodbyes....which sits empty except twice a year.... has another beautiful red rose in it for you today. I have filed it on all three of your birthdays that I have not had you with me and twice on the date of me last holding you. I've held on to the last breath you expelled and will continue to hold it in until we are reunited.
The gift you gave to me this week was a message that didn't go unnoticed. Most people will not know what I am talking about but daddy and I do and we are thrilled that you continue to watch over us. We miss your presence in our lives so much that it hurts. The complete physical ache we live with only reminds us of how much we loved you. It is a double edge sword. To not experience this pain would negate all the love we were able to give you and all the love you gave us in return. I would gladly take this pain a thousand times just to ensure that you were in our life.
Chase all the SQ's you want today my sweet girl. Have a wonderful Birthday at the Rainbow Bridge.
We will love you forever.
