This Weeks Photo Challenge is weight. Weight can be gravity or it can be emotional both uplifting and heavy. How appropriate for me this week.
This is my little Katie girl.
One of my favorite memories was Katie was sitting on my lap and I started singing a praise song. I know I can’t carry a tune in a bucket and that I am tone deaf, but I like to sing anyways. So I belted out a tune with my dog sitting in my lap. She picked up a paw and put it directly over my mouth. That was funny alright. It could have been a fluke. So I tested the waters by singing again. This time she put her ears back and looked directly in my eyes and pick up her paw and rather roughly put it over my mouth. I laughed and giggled. How uplifting. Laughter and love makes the heart weightless.
This is Katie last night. She was dying and so I picked up her pillow and put it on my bed. She picked up her paw and laid it on my shoulder. It was like she was saying “it’s going to be okay Mom”.
Tears filled my eyes and I had a good cry. She died last night at 12:39 am. I buried her in my friends yard. I had her for 14 happy years. Kind of a heavy weight.
I will miss my little Katie girl.
