Here's your laugh for today ...

A bittersweet laugh.

Reading RevChristine's post about losing a family pet made me think of losing one of our cats a couple of years ago. She had to be put to sleep. I tried to explain it to The Princess, who was 5 at the time -- not the euthanasia, just that she had died at the veterinarian and Daddy would be bringing Sally's body home for us to bury. "What made her alive -- her soul -- is gone, so she can't meow or walk around or feel anything anymore. Daddy is just bringing home her body."

The Princess looked up at me sorrowfully, trying to comprehend.

"But not her head?"

Hi. Visiting from Anne's site. Have read your entire blog. I am one of those who doesn't know what to say. But I will be reading and praying.

I especially enjoyed the post about things we would say to people and the one about the AQ. Truer words have never been spoken!
