a year ago today. ..

December 14, 2014

A year ago today,  miss Betsy came home. After losing chuck i didn’t think it was possible to feel whole again.  I was just telling someone,  she’s everything chuck wasn’t.  Chuck was tall and lean,  bets, short and stubby. Chuck could eat and eat and not gain weight.  Bets, such a woman,  gains weight by looking at food 😉 chuck thought people were put on this earth to see him.  Betsy, aka mama bear,  is much more weary of strangers.  But she loves her family.  Cats and all.

She didn’t fill the hole left by Chuck, she made her own place in our hearts.  She’s our bets,  and i wouldn’t have it any other way 🙂

    You just articulated almost everything I am feeling 6 months into my new world with Jasper and without Shelby. I just kept nodding, yup, yup, yup – especially the part about not FILLING the heart but finding her space! Beautifully written!!!

    Much love,
    Alison with the spirit of Shelby fur-ever in her heart (and little Jasper too)

    It’s so hard to believe it has already been a year since Betsy arrived. She is wonderful, just as you had hoped she would be. Love the pictures.

    Happy Gotcha day Betsy. A long way that you have come since Chuck passed. I know Betsy is happy in your home and you are happy with her.
