Gotcha Day

Today would have been Sweet Praline's 17th Gotcha Day.  She's always going to be in my heart but the ache is a little less each day because of the love of Truffle and Brulee.  I know Praline is watching over all of us from the Bridge and she's whispering advice and mischief into Truffle and Brulee's ears.  Happy Gotcha Day at the Bridge my sweet girl.  I thought I'd share the first Christmas card Sweet Praline sent out when she started blogging in 2008 for today's Gotcha Day.  I always thought this picture showed her "diva" personality.

Happy Birthday

Today would have been Sweet Praline's 17th birthday.  I hope you smile a little as you remember the Diva that was in all of our hearts.  I miss you and will always love you.


Remembering Sweet Praline with a Smile

Today is one year since I helped Sweet Praline to the Bridge.  I admit I've had some tears as I remember those last few days with her, but I wanted today to be a celebration of her life and how she helped everyone smile with her "diva" attitude.  Part of me wants to reminisce about those days, but the other part wants to live in the present and future with Truffle and Brulee.  Sweet Praline will always be a part of my life and I'll always smile when I remember her "happy face" pout.

Wendy, of Wendy's LOL-Spot, sent me the following graphic of Sweet Praline for today.  I both smiled and cried when I saw the graphic because the play on words would be exactly what Praline would say.  I'm sure she is ruling the Bridge everyday and demanding that all of her wishes be met.

Wendy had a wonderful way of showing Sweet Praline's diva attitude on the LOL-Spot blog.  I thought I'd share those with you again in hopes that they'll bring a smile to your face as we remember Sweet Praline.  Thank you, Wendy!

Re-posting these helped me to smile today!  You'll always have a special place in my heart, Sweet Praline.  Thank you for sending Truffle and Brulee to me to help heal such a huge hole.


Show Your Diva Announcement

I want to celebrate Sweet Praline's life as the anniversary of her trip to the Bridge approaches.  I'm a little sad as I remember this time last year, but I want to focus on the positive and have a reason to smile between the tears.  You can get more details about this "celebration" on Truffle and Brulee's blog (Sweet Purrfections).
