    Both Material And Emotional

    Material losses come and go and are only significant when there is an emotional component such as a picture. Emotional losses are harder to discount. I've lost two dogs over the years and both I remember very fondly as loyal pets who always looked to you for their...

    My loss count since 2007? 12. Four friends and acquaintances (2 of them suicides), all four grandparents, an aunt, my childhood dog, and two cousins. I (along with the rest of my family) am a wee bit exhausted.

    Friends Come And Go..

    I wish I could say that I still had the same friends for the last 4 years. I wish that I couldn't say the bad things really do come in threes. But it's proven to be very correct in to many cases to count. I always was the loud girl; the one that once we had introductions, I would...
