Saying Good-Bye Through the Eyes of a Child

This morning my daughter was full of questions about where Stella was going to go, who would be there to help her, and if her eyes would be open.  It has been hard for me to walk her through the process of letting go of Stella, but for Karly, it's like a send off party!  We have beads, and bracelets, one of Stella toys, and a book all packed into a little girls purse ready to share with Stella on her day. I am taking Karly's lead and looking at this as a joyous occasion.  I think Stella feels our good energy and is confident that she can go now.  

We have been pulling out photos and albums marking Stella's 12 years with us.  It's been fun to revisit these fun times and see a spark in Stella's eyes as she looks on with us.

It is with great gratitude that we say Thank You to our sweet boxer girl this week for we will help her over the Rainbow Bridge on Monday...beads, bracelets, toys, and all!
