Yes, the sun will shine again one day. I know that is so hard to believe right now, but it is true. The love that you shared with your Spunky is just too beautiful and precious to be held back by grief forever. Taking pleasure, and being able to relive some of those moments with a smile instead of tears, does come. A lifetime of love and memories of your boy will always be with you, and one day you will be able to take only pleasure from them. That is how we can honour them, by sharing the joy when we are ready.
I grieved long and hard for my kitties, and they are never far from my mind. Sometimes just reading someone else's story on here can make me cry. But now their memories are pleasures and joy and smiles for me. And the love that I felt for them when they were still with me has never faded. Now I carry them both in my heart, rather than in my arms, but I carry them with me all the same.
Your memories are in your heart, Patti. The joy that loving your boy gave you during his lifetime will not go away. It is still there, but hidden by sadness now, but it will ease.
Thinking of you,
Forever loved, forever missed.
