It's over. It's quiet. It's anticlimatic. It was good. It was fun.
My absolute favorite part was seeing my daughter and my Mother together.
My next favorite part was seeing two little guys enjoying every moment.
My favorite part after that was JB's shock when she opened an IPad (hello large screen Angry Birds)
My favorite part after that was hanging out with friends and family I love.
And my last favorite part was my own giving. I cared and I tried. I am happy about that.
Thanks to so many of you for your condolences about my dog Stella. How easy and common it is to know how it feels to lose a beloved loyal pet. I wish I knew she was okay without us. That's the hardest part about death, isn't it?--not knowing for SURE. I can only lean on FAITH. Sometimes that doesn't come easy. Please universe: take good care of Stella.
I haven't forgotten that I've promised to write a poem using favorite words. Meanwhile, I'd like to hear how you treated others during the last few days. Please take a look and if you don't mind, I'd like to know.
Happy almost new year. Fresh start, you know...love kj
