Missing My Fluffy Friend

 The One Who Left Without Me Saying Goodbye

Nothing could be more painful than losing someone you love. Two years ago, we lost our beloved pet dog named Mimi. We loved her and took care of her for more than 5 years. We all consider her as part of the family. Whenever she gets sick, we drive her to the vet right away and made sure she had her vitamins and followed a certain diet. Then just like that, she was gone due to a car accident. It was really heartbreaking. Some of us were crying for weeks and just couldn't eat. It was just like losing a family member. 


My son and Mimi slept in the same bed.We had her years before my son was born.
Now how did I overcome this? Frankly speaking, I did nothing, but time helped tremendously in easing the pain, just one day at a time. They say "Time heals all wounds" and I agree to that, but they forgot to say that even if the wound is healed, it still leaves a mark.  When I remember what happened, it doesn't hurt as much, but the burden of losing her is still there. I guess there is no way of erasing it because I love her so much that I don't want to forget her. I just keep her in my heart and learn to move on with my life, and continue loving the people I have with me now. 

I had my own share of regrets and one of them is not being with Mimi very much.  I also wished that I took a lot of pictures of us together. It was the time when smart phones were still quite expensive so I just used our old digital cameras when I have them with me. 

 They say adversities in life make you strong and lessons are learned. Well, I don't know about the first part because I didn't feel strong, but the latter is true. The experience indeed taught me something very important - LOVE YOUR LOVED ONES AS IF IT WERE THEIR LAST. If only I knew it was Mimi's last day, I could have walked her to the park or I could have stayed with her all day. But I guess that's what God wants us to learn and that is nothing in this world is permanent and we should love ourselves and everyone around us as if it were our last day on this Earth. 


If I were to have a good camera smart phone by that time, I would definitely choose the OPPO F1s #SelfieExpert so we could have wonderful shots together using its 16MP rear camera regardless of the time of day thanks to its easy-to-use features that make life simpler for amateur photographers like me.   Now that Mimi is gone, only her few pictures remain and an Oppo F1s could have given me beautiful memories of my fluffy friend. 

But with picture or not, Mimi will always remain in my heart and I will always cherish my memory of her.
