My e-friend Nancy just lost two of her fur-kids, Miss Molly and Big Guy, after long struggles with illness. This picture of gentle departure seems so right. Today my heart goes out to all who love the four-legged little souls who come into our lives, our care - our hearts. Chances are that when we choose to give our hearts like so many of us do - that we will suffer the pain of loss. In these relationships we discover - we become, the best that we may be. This is what we do - love, suffer and love again. Nancy creates a delightful potpourri she sends to subscribers called "Friday's Journal" at her website The Past Whispers.
