It has been a rough year.
I lost a set of grandparents two weeks from each other - strange how that happens huh? My grandmother passed two weeks after my grandfather.
Then about a month later I lost two cats within two weeks of each other. I had them both for about 15 years. I had lost the first one the year before - she was 18 years old. The vet told me I should be proud of myself because they had been around for so long and I must have been doing something right.
Saying goodbye was hard, harder than I thought. The loss of the kitties lingered, but I kept reminding myself of what the vet said to get me through the sad times. As for Grandma and Grandpa they led full happy lives leaving 22 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. Not too bad...I hope I am as lucky! Grandma would want me to look ahead and take the coming year by the horns and get on it so that's what I'm planning to do.
