I Miss my Kitty

A year ago today our little kitty, Cinnamon, died.

I recently read again the poem I wrote about her:    Poem About Cinnamon

I cried again, and I still miss her.  And she was “only” an animal!

I do think God likes when we enjoy His animals.

But it also reminds me of all those going through the one-year anniversary of “greater” grief—whether the death of a friend or family member, divorce, birth of a child with health problems, job loss, beginning of a long-term illness, rejection from family, or some other loss.

That first year is hard, and the year anniversary usually brings “extra” grief.

For those of you experiencing grief, hugs to you. May you receive extra comfort today.

About Christa Upton

I am a wife and mother of three children ages 11, 14, and 18. I used to be a stay-at-home mom (teaching piano & dance, volunteering, etc). From 2007 to 2010, I suffered accidental Toxic Injury (also called Multiple Chemical Sensitivity or MCS). MCS has had major impact on our family, but the forced time in bed has given me time to write. So far, I have published 4 children's books (2 in e-book format on Kindle, one in Print-on-Demand at CreateSpace, and one printed by a local printer). Sometimes I miss my old life, but I love writing for children!
