the sadness is still overwhelming. I can feel the depression laying over me like a heavy quilt. But… there is a small flickering light in the darkness of my day. I have a new best friend. A small gray tabby named Emma Jane. She is just six weeks old. I fell in love with her immediately. She came home with me yesterday and I just can’t get enough of her. I was actually happy to hear that the maintenance man would be coming into my apartment today to check on a few things. So.. I just had to bring her to work with me. Darn! She is lying on my lap right now, sleeping in the tiniest ball of fluff ever. She is just so dang cute! She will help me get through this I know. My new best friend. Princess Emma.
