It’s hard to believe Ruby has been gone more than two years after being diagnosed with advanced kidney disease. Some days I still miss my little girl so much, it actually feels like a physical ache. I’m grateful I have eight years of Ruby’s Reflections on this site to comfort me and remind me of some of the cute things she did when the pain hits, and I love sharing the memories with you.
I miss Ruby every day all day long, but the time of day when I miss her the most is when I go to bed at night. Ruby always slept curled up in my arms, and some nights, I swear I can still feel her little body pressed against me.
Allegra used to sleep at the foot of the bed when Ruby was still with us, but a few months after she passed, Allegra started working her way up toward the head of the bed, and most nights, she now sleeps on the pillow next to me, which is so comforting.
Today’s memory takes us back to November of 2017, when Ruby explained how she slept with me.
