What a beautiful face I have found in this place that is circling all round the sun. What a beautiful dream that could flash on the screen in a blink of an eye and be gone from me. Let me hold it close and keep it here with me. And one day we will die and our ashes will fly from the aeroplane over the sea. But for now we are young, let us lay in the sun and count every beautiful thing we can see ...

His Last Day:

  • We built a bed fort on the floor and had a slumber party
  • We lit candles and listened to the 10 hour "most calming song in the world" and stayed up all night
  • He snuggled into my arms for a couple hours and that was magical
  • I read him all the lists I made about his life and why I love him
  • I sang him this lullabye throughout the night
  • I showed him the home video I made of him of his first year with us
  • I wrote a letter of recommendation on his dog ambassadorship
  • I apologized for things. He apologized for things.
  • We went on a nice morning walk on a cloudy day
  • We sat on the back porch and ate breakfast and watched a crow and a squirrel - he barked at the squirrel

I’m a pro.

  • You enter into high anxiety, stress, and worry that something is happening to your loved one. You’re scrambling.
  • You also go in and out of denial. Thinking there’s going to be a way out and a plan, you just have to find it. You try to maintain some semblance of your life because it affirms that everything is going to be okay. You have a hint of selfish thoughts on how this will change things and you beat them back with your better self.
  • Denial gets mixed up with hope. And this helps you to sleep a little.
  • Urgency. You realize that hope is fading and its friend denial is also checking out. You no longer sleep. Food suddenly tastes terrible.
  • You are hit with a ton of bricks. You have rage. You have sorrow. And you have fea...

He doesn't know...

  • That I hear him sweetly break when she asks for just one more HUG after the ten prior.
  • That I hear him explaining the rules of a new game with PATIENCE over and over again.
  • That I hear him making CONVERSATION at 7am over breakfast before school when I know he’s exhausted.
  • That I hear his footsteps when he’s the dancing MONSTER making her cringe with laughter.
  • That I hear him CONSOLING her with gentle personal experience when she’s been bullied.
  • That I hear his myriad of VOICES for the fictional characters he’s reading to her.
  • That I hear him build her CONFIDENCE when knocked down by a difficult math problem...
