Happy Birthday Shakespeare, my goofy mama's boy. I can’t believe you’re not here, it breaks my heart so much…. I *can* believe I can’t write any more than that sentence before crying already. I miss you so much. I knew I’d be a mess when the day came, I thought it’d be old age, and I’d have time to “accept” the eventuality, but that obviously didn’t happen. I only had a few days, a few terrible, heart wrenching days. I thought you’d be fine, you were always strong and resilient and healthy…. My goofy boy, my heart, my first and always baby…. You gave me so much and I wish you were here more than anything in the world. I wish I could watch you enthusiastically unwrap your presents and gobble down treats. You were a silly boy who always made me smile. You had such a zest for everything. One thing you gave me is that zest, to enthusiastically appreciate and love everything, from sitting in the grass to savoring treats.

Today I’m taking Lacey to all the pet stores, probably a park or two depending on the heat. I’m going to try and celebrate your life and make Lacey’s happier instead of crying and moping. You never did that. Even when you may have been in pain, you still wanted to walk and gobble food and you were still goofy. I miss you so, so, so much baby boy. I wish you were here for your birthday and it breaks my heart that you’re not. Ok, self, refocus on those very first sentences in this paragraph… Focus on being goofy and happy to and with Lacey, doing things with her to celebrate. Celebrate the joy your baby boy brought you.

Thank you to our friends for the rosettes and messages.
