Happy Zeus on his 5th Birthday 5/22/2010
This morning I woke to an aching heart as the tears rolled down my face onto my pillow. Zeus, today you would have been 6 years old, and I can't believe it's been exactly 6 months since I had to let you go. Every day my heart misses you more and more. As spring is setting in and summer is around the corner, I miss you outside, smelling my flowers and peeing on my hostas, helping mom garden.
I remember your 1st birthday with me, when I realized how much you loved birthdays and most of all balloons! I remember watching you jump so high to grab those balloons out of the air, just to wrestle them to the ground and pop them!
All week long my heart broke more and more, to know I wasn't going shopping for your birthday presents and balloons. Your Xmas presents are still in the wrapping paper. I don't know if I can ever open them. You were my 1st child, my sick child too. I'm so sorry we couldn't fix your heart. I would have given you half of mine to make you better, and I know you know that.
Today will be hard, because the love of birthdays, presents, sweet treats and balloon popping is always something we shared together. I hope that over the Rainbow Bridge you are having a wonderful 6th birthday, and you have all the things that make you happy, until we meet again pup pup. Mommy loves you always.
