The way it should be....

This morning I had the honor of going with a friend to the vet to say her final goodbyes to an old friend. I won't share too many details, because that is her story to tell; but I couldn't help but think that this was the way it should be. The old cat was ready to go, and we gathered at the animal hospital to show our support to both cat and human.

It reminds me of a quote that my son shared with me. One that he found after he lost a friend.

"I have to remind myself that some birds aren't meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away, the part of you that knows it was a sin to lock them up DOES rejoice. Still, the place you live in is that much more drab and empty that they're gone. I guess I just miss my friend. "

Happy trails Mr. Mufasa.
