Thank you very much for your comments, e-mails, and prayers. I could feel them on Friday as it was time to say goodbye. I literally was flooded with peace soon after we pulled up to the Vet's office. So much so that I could be there when our dear girl was given her shot... what a blessing. Honestly, she went quickly and with a smile on her face. My husband buried her under the dogwood tree in the backyard and found a pretty rock to place near it. He later took three red roses to lay on her little resting place.
Since Friday, I have looked at the places where she usually was curled up and I still have to be reminded that she is no longer with us. I miss her terribly but I'm making certain to give her sister a lot of attention. She has always been more attached to both of our kids but is now in need of affection from all of us.
We are in the midst of a major heat wave in our part of the Midwest. I'm having very fond thoughts of Autumn.
Christopher brought home An Inconvenient Truth from the DVD machine at the grocery store (trust a grocery store in a college town to have that movie). It is an excellent film to watch as a basis for discussion. Christopher has been doing some research online and asking some questions of science/professor types we know.
I'm writing this Friday evening and I'll be back tomorrow afternoon to pull a winner out of a... umm... bowl? So, you can still leave a comment until noonish on Monday.
