Wow, That Came Out of Nowhere
I had A Christmas Story on for background while Santa was wrapping presents, and I was just about to be ready to go to bed when one of those SPCA commercials came on. One of the kittens that they showed reminded me of Kechara when he was a kitten, and I just lost it. I started sobbing so loudly I woke DH up. He was sweet about that and hugged me, but I still felt bad for waking him up. Usually when something reminds me of Kechara, I've been able to smile sadly and keep going, maybe with a tear or two in my eyes, but nothing major. Not this time. I don't know if it was because I've been more emotional lately or because it was a kitten looking like him instead of an older cat or what, but the strength of my reaction definitely surprised me.
