Happy and Sad - We Remember - by the Lady

I have found in my life that there are many days that signify both good and bad things in my life. Today is one of these.

May 12, 2005: This signifies the day I defended my Master's thesis and escaped a toxic thesis adviser, and more importantly, Gemi's Adoption Day. She was a gift from the Man for finishing my Master's. 

May 12, 2010: This is the day Loki died. 

So today we remember the joy of bringing a new puppy home and the pain of saying goodbye.

  5. Sweet memories are sadly always tinged with some pain. But better to have had the sweet memories though. Have a marvellous Monday.

  6. I can certainly identify with the happy/sad days. It's always hard when "those days" roll around but we know that time does put "soft edges" on those tough times eventually.....and let us focus on the good. Sending comfort hugs!
