Tell those you love, you love them. Show those you love, you love them.
The only certainty from the instant of conception is death. Yet death can still be sad, even when the deceased is four-legged.
While showering last night Einstein (as usual) sat on the bath’s ledge. Upon arising from a short nap I found him curled up next to a bookcase. He was peaceful. He was warm. He was dead.
A caring friend comforted me by opining he’d had a heart attack. No pain. No anguish. Simply here one moment and gone the next.
I’d had no intention of acquiring a cat. Yet after one of those weeks, I did. Then, very quickly, Einstein was an integral part of my life. His short tenure brought incredible joy. He was a very loving cat. An on-your-chest and in-your-face cat. Now he’s gone.
Too often it seems we require death’s reminder our tenure here is not permanent. The reminder love is exponential. Love grows by sharing. That it is the wise who actively honor those they love, both in word and deed. Please take the time to tell (and show) those you love how you feel.
To my darling daughter I say — as I have every day since your birth — I love you more today than yesterday.
