Happy Birthday Thoughts

My sweet Dekoh Boy,

Today would have been your 9th birthday and I wanted to tell you happy birthday.

I told myself that I needed to take today off from work to spend time with you in my heart and just hang out. I was going to go over to the Audubon and walk it 9 times but Mom came up with a much better idea. I chose 9 different places that were our favorite places to go to and most likely would have been where we went today had you been here with me. I know you were there with me at every stop and every step I took, telling me you were ready to go. I knew today would be a hard day for me as really everyday has been hard for me realizing you were not going to come running out from behind that one tree or running over to chase that rabbit that caught your eye. I will say that I went to our most favorite place down at the Deer Creek camp in the Mt Evans wilderness area and what did I get to see, a squirrel running up a tree. I ran over to chase that squirrel up the tree for you as I knew you were right there by my side the whole way.

I want to post some pictures I took at each stop so you can see them, even though I know you were there with me for every step I took. I want to tell you the folks at WagNWash and CRCG (pool) told me to tell you hi as they miss you very much too. I had to get a picture of Kat at WagNWash since I know you loved to torment the cats there especially Kat.

I miss you every day and so much wish you were still here with us, but I know you are with me every day looking down on me to make sure I stay safe. I hope you had a great day at the Rainbow Bridge playing with your brothers Zieg and Toby as well as your girl Kaya.

  2. Happy birthday sweet boy…your dad knows you are watching over him and are with him always. How about throwing him a shiny penny now and then, to show him you’re fine and happy, but miss him too?
