It’s been 40 days.
40 days since our Ursa left us. 40 days since I truly understood the meaning of loss. 40 days that my heart has been aching.
In many religions, 40 days is the traditional mourning period. And yet I spent yesterday evening curled in a ball, crying for my sweet Bear as though she’d left us just that morning.
I miss her more than I could ever put to words.
Appropriately, today Theron (of the Why We Rescue series) shared the following:
If you do anything today, in the very least, point your camera towards what you love. It goes so fast.
How desperately true his words are. And how fortunate I am to have done so, so very often, with my Ursa.
I miss her. Always. I love her. Forever.
