My Thoughts are With Emily

Working through grief is tough. Most of the time now I can think of Emily and all the happy times that we shared. But there are times of sorrow and tears. It was last night and today that this hit me hard.
I realized that looking at the last photos near her passing and thinking of her then, are my worst moments. Tonight I looked over some of the nearly 13 years of photos and felt better. Emily was a very beautiful corgi girl and very photogenic. She would pose and stay in place. This was due to her show-dog, obedience training before she came to me.

I have many gorgeous photos and now will have two more canvas pictures made. I haven’t decided which as there are so many! We went to many places and had good times. Our last vacation together was to Williamsburg, VA in Dec. 2011. One night, I realized that this may be our last vacation. I cried the whole night.

I haven’t been on vacation since then as I took care of her and had my own health issues. Now, I think this coming year that I will go and begin my life with Velvet…

The birthday girl at Longwood Gardens. It was her favorite place.

Emily's favorite spot here in the gardens. (This was the old pond before we added the cabin deck.) She liked to look over her 'kingdom' and watch Corky and Ginny.
