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.
