Today Stella went to the bridge. She had been losing weight and while I was gone on vacation she started throwing up and wetting herself. The vet said that she had all sorts of physical problems (probably stemming from malnutrition befoera and after she was born) and that the kindest thing would be to let her go. So today she left us with a big hole in our hearts.
“We take to our hearts those beings who are even shorter lived than we, knowing that we will suffer from their impermanence but learn from it how to savor what they give us---a brief, perfect glimpse into a heart that loves unconditionally.”
