A word from Mom

I've taken over the blog for today to thank everyone for their kind thoughts and purrayers. My Mom lost her battle with cancer and even though we miss her terribly - we are comforted by the knowledge that she is no longer in pain. I just got back from the funeral home not long ago and the number of people and flowers was overwhelming for myself and my family. Thanks to all of my friends & family for all the in person & online comforting thoughts & purrayers

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep
I am a 1,000 winds that blow
I am the diamond glints on snow
I am the sun on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled light
I am the soft star that shines at night
Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there; I did not die.

I wish there was some way to ease your pain. I'm sure that Mia & Ghost are great comforts. A well-timed head butt from a purring kitty can do wonders.
