Thank you all so very, very, very much for the words that you shared with us about Mow's passing. I debated whether or not to even post about it, and am so grateful that I did. As I read through the comments and shed many more tears, I felt quite touched by the sincerity and acknowledgement of our loss. So, thank you. We're all quite sad around here--it feels like such a huge hole for such a 'little' being to leave, and we're all trying to figure out the new family balance with one less heart beating in our home. I think we'll be in hibernation mode around here this week, so don't be surprised if you hear from me less. I think my family needs to spend a bit more time just hugging each other.
We took our first walk in the park without Mow yesterday during the big blizzard. It was cold, snowy and so windy. Steve and I were hanging back with plenty of sniffles, but I happened to snap just this one picture. Perhaps I'm feeling a bit emotional, but I thought it was fitting--of life, and youth, and carrying on--with sadness, but perhaps a stronger heart from having loved so much. And did I mention the snow? Yeah, we've got snow!
And for some lightness, here's Kitty, looking out at the blizzard from the warm inside. I desperately needed some easy, light and quick crafting this weekend, and just in time, saw the Wee Wonderfuls free pattern for Pointy Kitty. The pattern was very easy to follow, and with quite a cute result, I must say. Thanks, Hilary!
