Today will always mean something much more to me than wearing green and eating corned beef and cabbage.
One year ago today was the most difficult day in both my and my husband's life. Yes, the loss of our dear Uzi (see picture on top of blog) beats out everything else that happened before and after that, including DH's arrest, our rejected Home Study, the day he missed my surgery and then missed the vacation he so badly needed, etc. etc.
I can't even describe for you all what that dog meant, and continues to mean, to me. While DH and I were dating, we went through a very very difficult cross, more difficult than IF in many ways, and Uzi helped us through it. He was like a much cooler Lassie. He was our joy in times of sadness. He wasn't "just" a pet. He was our son.
I am so very humbled that of all families to be blessed with the world's greatest friend, we were that family. I cannot wait to see him again.
We miss you terribly, Uzi. Life is not the same without you.
