The heaviness that hangs over our house is thick. I constantly freeze frame moments in my mind and treasure sounds and feelings. The click of light weight toenails on hardwood floors, the thump of a body pushing through the dog door, the lapping of water out of the bowl. I know Lilys sounds from Pennys and they are so distinct in my mind these days. We took Lily to a specialist this week that gave us further bad news, when I ask about a further check up the vet sounded as if she would be surprised if Lily was with us in the next 2-3 weeks. This is hard for me to fathom as my dog is still barking at cats, interested in her toys and wanting to eat ham. We went for a walk this week to clear out the numbing sadness that has pervaded our spirits, fresh air and sunshine helps temporarily. We are enjoying our family this week-end loving and cherishing the time that has been given to us, hugging and kissing alot. Do the same with your loved ones.
