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.

Wow...I also started my first job 16 years ago. So many changes. It does hurt, though, to feel like we're leaving behind the ones that are gone.

It does feel like we are leaving them behind. It's shocking to think, 16 years, wow and 3 years for your dad...feels like we forgot them, but we never have, we're just living and they're not. :(

I just remembered on Tuesday that it's been 20 years this month that girl in my class died. She was so young...it's so strange to think at this point I'm old enough to be her mother.
