Life Goes On
I want to thank everyone who left notes of love and support here for all of us these past few days. I really can't express how deeply felt your words have been. We miss our wild imp of a kitten like crazy, yet we're accepting that there are simply no explanations for why some things happen. She will forever live in our hearts.
Luna, our adult cat, is the only one who seems truly and unabashedly grateful that the kitten is no longer here to torment her by chasing her incessantly or leaping out at her from around corners. She has been especially affectionate and playful now that she has resumed her role as Sole Feline of the Manor House. I don't blame her.
Winter has officially arrived with our first major snowfall of the season. The air smells brand new and fresh and the nights seem lit with a subtle glow now that everything is covered with a pristine blanket of white. The scene outside seems to mirror the tenderness of our hearts, right now. Amid all the loss, a tenacious ember glows with gratitude and respect for the fleeting nature of all things.
The road curves, the story changes. Life goes on.
