goodbyes the color of roses

Today is a sad day for our family, as we say goodbye to our oldest cat.

She has been with us for eighteen years,
as long as my husband and I have been together.

It feels like the end of an era.

The sun is shining, and just now,
she has found a patch of bright light to sit in.

And that is how I will remember her best.


Wishing you a week filled with sunshine and fond memories.





Linking up with Kim Klassen’s Texture Tuesday

    Peace and blessings to you and your family. What a wonderful, long life your kitty has had with you!

    My family is in a similar position. Our dog is also 18 years old, and he is not doing well. There have been days lately when we have considered that we’d have to say goodbye. It probably won’t be long.

    Oh Kelly, my heart breaks for you. I feared this moment but didn’t want it to be so. I’m sure you must be devasted, saying goodbye is hard. Hugs to you and your family and what a beautiful image to remember her by. xoxox

    I am so sorry that you have to say goodbye to your pet. I cannot imagine how awful it must feel for you…

    This is a beautiful tribute to create for her.

    My heart hurts for you. We lost our little fur-baby last year – he was about the same age as yours.
