First I want to thank Catster for honoring me as a diary pick of the day.
It does not seem strange that this honor is bestowed upon me on this day. September 11th. A day that will be remembered long after I am forgotten.
My mom works for a large financial institute and watched with horror as the events of that tragic day unfolded. Her company lost seven people on that day, including spouses and children. Yes, a 3 year old little boy was lost.
Her friends are memorialized by their deeds, their loved ones who remember them and also by a beautiful stone cairn that is placed in the lobby of my mom's office. Today it is surrounded by white roses.
On this day of remebrance a strange transition has taken place. I will never be forgotted by those who love me. Last night mum brought home two new kittens to fill the void in her heart. One of them could be me. Not so much in looks but in deeds. His name is Manny and he jumped on her bed and tickled her toes. He plays and fetches. Just like me.
So, you see...life goes on. We do not forget, and we hold those memories close to out heart, but we do find room in our hearts to love again. Love never dies and love never replaces. It is the most infinite pace in the universe. It will grow and grow and never cease.
I am here at the rainbow bridge with all my animal friends and those who lost their lives on 9/11. Please know, no matter how horrific your memories of that day are, no matter how much you miss them, no matter how large the hole is, in your heart...they are free of pain, they are at peace and they love you. They want you to know, it is okay to move on, to love again, bigger and better and to smile when you remember them.
Most Beloved and Missed
