Knit Together

Let one who wants to move and convince others, first be convinced and moved themselves. If a person speaks with genuine earnestness the thoughts, the emotion and the actual condition of their own heart, others will listen because we all are knit together.

How Can This Be?

Around 9 p.m. Husband found Sophie lying on the floor, not breathing, without a pulse. She just died. Sophie May was not quite eight years old. She was born September 1999, one month before I met Husband. I knew Sophie from her birth since a friend rescued her pregnant momma. Now she's just...gone. I am crazed with grief, anger, bewilderment. There is a Sophie-shaped space in our lives now, and we'll feel it keenly for a long time. She loved to nap in sun spots.

I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul.
