Sadly, we came back from the weekend to the news that Bogart's daddy had passed away. Despite the outpouring of love, support and prayers, it wasn't enough to keep him with those who loved him most.
Death is not something that I can fully get my paws on and I don't understand it one bit. But I do know that the one thing which can surpass death is love, because love can keep our dearly departed ones alive in our hearts for ever and ever.
Mom also says it's a reality check for her to treasure all the people (and furries) around her, and not to take anyone for granted. She admits that she does take people (mostly dad) and things around her for granted without really realising it.
I think it's about time we all learn to love and live each day fully as if it were the last. Ok, for the 'love' part, I shall start showing my LOVE to the ice-cream man down the street, and maybe the postman... ummm... maybe not. And to live each day to the fullest, mom, can you give me ALL the treats you have hidden in the drawer and ALL the new toys you have hidden in your cupboard? (yes, I know they are there...)
