Today was a day like any other but I felt this cloud over the day that I could not seem to get rid of nor could I bring myself to discuss it beyond the simple “A year ago today I lost my cousin to brain cancer.”
Kneesa decided four hours was enough sleep for me this morning, so I groggily took them both outside. I’m glad I didn’t lock myself outside again. It was already hot and sticky outside at only 9 am. We came inside after sniffing the entire yard for any hidden message that might have been left for them, I fed them breakfast and Kassie looked at me like something was missing so I grabbed a scoop of ice cubes and she happily dove into the bowl to fish one out and tossed it around. When she became bored with one, she crunched it away and started again.
I watched her for a few rounds as I reflected on life and loss and shed a few tears, but Kneesa & Kassie came over to attack me with kisses to let me know they are there for me. I giggled, wiped my tears away and remembered life must move on.
I sat down at the computer and logged in to all my favorite sites, my friends made me smile a bit more. I then moved onto my email to see if there was anything that required my immediate attention, than I checked the main spread sheet for Wear Gray. I started Wear Gray as a way to hopefully bring more awareness to brain cancer after losing my cousin last year. What I never knew was how much it would bring into my life. Also it has taught me how to move forward and showed me that one person can make a difference.
I’m yawning so I think I will curl up for a nap before I take on the second half of my day.
