The Beloved Men In My Life

Forget birthday presents: these two dudes are all I need. 

Rock on Sweet Boy!

Sleep well, love.

[My kitties make life pretty grand, too.]

Missing my babe

"In the face of loss, people deserve space to be out of their minds. And they will get back in their minds in their own time, not when people are tired of their grief and ready for them to move on.

We are unfair to grief, I think, treating it as an enemy or a disease to be fought. We do not succumb to grief. We do not lose to grief. We engage grief. It gives us the time our hearts need for us to be out of our minds." [Source: Julie Pippert http://theartfulflower.blogspot.com/2012/02/we-are-unfair-to-grief.html?m=1]

I never held you, but I knew you. And, I still miss you, little one. The three of us sent up a pink Chinese lantern in your honor on Friday night - a little early, so that Daddy could be there, too. We told Aidan about you. I'm not quite sure than he understood, but he did listen...perhaps even more quietly than usual. It was a good evening. 

Finally, to Glenda: Still I am endlessly grateful.

My Coworkers

This is what my office (aka the couch) looks like by the end of my shift. 

They love my new job, mostly for the extra cuddle time. I love it, too. All of it!

Be All My Sins Remember'd

I needed the quiet so He drew me aside.
Into the shadows where we could confide
Away from the bustle where all the day long
I hurried and worried when active and strong.

Nine years...your last words still haunt me, and I'm still sorry...
