That is what I consider cute hair that does not photograph well :D
I also found a new shirt (in the picture) for five bucks! I went in to Target wanting a new five dollar shirt and it was the second one that I picked up. Pretty amazing for me. Hannah likes it so much she hugged me just for putting it on.
We are coping with our loss and for that I am very thankful. Hannah has started to ask questions, today she wanted to know what makes fish die (she lost one last year this same time) and then she asked the same about Ralph. I find it hard to know what to say that won't make her afraid when I let her know someone else has a cold or is sick in the hospital. But we'll work it out.
I'm ever so thankful for my husband who was strong and courageous during the final hours and minutes of our cat's life. I do not envy the decisions that he had to voice. I am forever grateful for the care that he gave to us that day and to our pet.
I'm also thankful that on the one day we decided to go to McDonald's, which we have sworn off since watching Food Inc, there were mermaid toys. Just the night before Hannah had found a sea horse that used to have a mermaid and she wanted a new mermaid. God is definitely good.
I am also thankful for all of our dear friends and family who called and facebooked and spoke to us words of encouragement and condolences these past two days. It's hard to believe that so much love can be captured in such a short amount of time.
