                                      BROKEN ...

On September 28, 2015 my world was forever changed...

I lost my good friend to "Sudden Death."  I am Broken... 

There were so many things left unsaid.  So many things left undone. So many , "Oh, we can do that another day or another time."  Now, every time my phone rings, or every time I get a text or an IM, and expect it to be's not...that familiar beep or ringtone only makes my heart hurt, because I know it will never ever be her again.  And, all of those things left unsaid and all of those things that should have been done and weren't...will never be...I keep waiting for the pain of missing her to get easier.  I hear that it does, "with time..."  Somehow, I just don't believe that! So, I am left Broken...until one day I will see her again.  

Please enjoy this beautiful artwork that I have come across this week to go along with my journal. Feel free to stop by the artist's page and compliment them on their work, if you so desire.  I'm sure they would appreciate it.  :nod:

Melissa "Mim"
Artist | Photography
United States
Hi! My name is Melissa, but, everyone calls me Mim...or Mimi. I love my Min-Pin (Susie), Photography, Music, Running, Cycling, Reading and a ton of other things, but, not necessarily in that order. (Except for Susie, of course!) :love:
I also love double entendres. A lot, if not most of my picture titles have double meanings. Some people that view them may pick up on what I'm really trying to say immediately, while others--never quite get it. But, that's ok. That's how art is supposed to be. Derive from it your own meanings and interpretations. But, most of all...just enjoy it! Thanks for stopping by my page and if you'd like, take a look through my gallery. I appreciate any and all comments and critiques of my work. :-)
*NOTE* Just an update...Susie, my Min-Pin that I spoke of in the first paragraph, died in my arms at 1:50am, Friday morning, 01/29/10 in the ICU at a Vet. Specialty Hospital. I didn't want to change the order of "The things I love" because, she's still the number one and always will be! My heart is broken, but, I know she can see again, and no longer has to take insulin shots twice a day or have her treats spiked with medicine. R.I.P. My Little One!

Tea's Shelter Project

Tea's Shelter Project

My good friend Tea, from :iconteaphotography:, TeaPhotography, is running a shelter project - helping the animals from a shelter near her home. It's a project that is very near and dear to her heart, as well as my own. :heart: Click here… , and here…? so you can read more about it. Have a look at these wonderful animals who need our help and protection so much, and also, take some time to see how much of herself Tea devotes to these little ones. She really has a huge heart. :heart:
