I was numb, and then there was you. You breathed feeling into me in a way I didn’t think I needed... I learned what life meant when I was in your arms.

“I Packed Your Bags”, Part I
I packed your bags today. I spent the whole day folding your clothes into those suitcases you had once bought us when we went on vacation to the beach seven years ago. I opened one of the teal bags and I found sand inside. Those minuscule grains of sand that felt like glass in between my fingertips reminded me of the time we sat on that hot beach and we dug our feet deep in the warm sand. We ran into the ocean and cooled our bodies off, laughing each time the salt water splashed into our mouths. I couldn’t help but recall the sandcastle we built together only to have that white and black dog trample all over it. I cried, but you held me close and reassured me that our lives would be filled with many more sand castles. I can’t stand to look at the snow globe you bought me with the sand castle within because all I think about is how you promised that you would be there for me, but you’re not. And my heart is breaking.
I have some great friends and family y'all! They care about me, lift me up and comfort me in the worst times! When I had to put my dog Naka down 2 weeks ago today it was heart wrenching and so difficult to do. I miss him and know I will for many years. So, when you receive thoughtful gifts, beautiful cards, sweet messages, and warm hugs it just makes it a little easier. 🐾🐾 Thank you to each and every one of you for your condolences.
Letting go of somebody is never easy - but like I discussed in my previous post, everything will and must happen for a reason. Maybe that person isn’t right for you, maybe you’re meant to be happier with somebody else in the future. You just don’t know, so you just need to hang on to that belief that there are better things waiting for you and about to come when you are ready.

Porcelain skin, the easier to break you my dear.
Rosy cheeks, the redder they get when you cry my dear.
Plump lips, the easier to bite down on when you don't know how to feel my dear.
