Bittersweet Month of August

We are in the month of August. My cousin Saskia turned 16 the other day...16! Can you believe it? That means my cat Kira (who resides with an Aunt) has also recently turned 16. Makes sense that she would live long, she was pretty evil in her younger years...ha. The middle of the month is a good time, it's Anniversary time. But what makes August bittersweet is another anniversary, not the good kind. It marks 16 years since my uncle's death. 16 years! What the heck?? It's so weird how after someone's passing, time and LIFE just goes on. Before you know it, you look back and like a blink, all those years were so long ago even though the feelings of loss and pain can still hurt like yesterday...

Well we all know time is moving and we can't do anything to stop it...but every once in a while, we can stop and remember with love, those who live in our memories.
