Love = Loss = Love

Snowball 1996-2009

I lost my kitty cat yesterday.

She was nearly 13 and I had forgotten how hard it is to lose a pet. I have cried, even whaled over losing her. I loved her deeply. As I age something becomes ever so clear. If a person loves deeply, they hurt deeply. Loss is gut-wrenching, be it over a person or a pet. We have relationships with our pets. They become our family.

Easter in my house and my heart is about Love. A Love so great and so perfect that it could only be Divine. When I consider the losses in my life and how devastated they have left me, I am comforted and humbled by a God whom I believe so deeply loves all He created that he sacrificed His only Son to prove it. An act I would not be willing to do for anyone, anytime. No matter how many losses I experience on this earth, none will compare to His loss.

Happy Easter everyone. Halleluiah!

Thank you, SunShine. I not only appreciate your prayers, I really need them. It's been a sad week. Looking forward to my sons coming home and celebrating Easter with me. Hope yours is special, as well.

Maureen, yes, snuggle up!!

I'm so sorry, Lisa! What a sweetheart, too. It always strikes me just how much the little furballs come to mean to us.
