March ? 1991 - March 25, 2007
Ready or not, life with a toddler and a primary-schooler goes on in its whirl-o-wheel fashion.
In the words of Kahlil Gibran, "[f]or life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday."
Today, and I expect tomorrow at least, I won't be quite ready.
We had to put my long-time companion, Emma, down today.
Today, I am struck, again, by those inordinately powerful discrete moments of life and death. One moment, Itsy was in BioMom's belly, and then next, Big was a new individual entity that altered our lifes forever.
I am similarly struck by how my life has again taken a right-turn today, moving on without her.
Below find a few notes from our extremely empathetic, Seven and her pal, 4of4.
Thank you both, for giving me some love and perspective.
[Note a few things in the pictures, the tears in the "Emma, the end" and the sticker with the note "come back."]
