Last night after Huib left for work, I started listening to Hits 1, on Sirius/XM Radio.
Avril Lavigne has a new song out, called Here’s to Never Growing up. It began playing as soon as the station tuned in, and I started thinking about Phoenix.
Don’t get me wrong, I think about Phoenix a lot, but hearing Avril made the memories come back stronger.
Phoenix loved Avril. He’d be sleeping on the couch (before he went deaf of course) and as soon as an Avril Lavigne song came on the radio, Huib said Phoenix’s tail would start wagging to the music. It was so strange!
It’s hard to believe he’s already been gone for a year and nine months.
Both Phoenix and Aspen were such a large part of our family. It’s hard to put into words how much their deaths have effected us.
Aspen has only been gone two months, so the pain and tears are still quite fresh, but we still miss Phoenix.
i hope they are running through fields, chasing leaves and enjoying crab apples together.
I hope they both know how much we love and miss them each day.
I also hope they know that they don’t have to worry about us, they did enough of that while they were still with us.
And to think this post all started from a song that came on the radio…
