From mom to Cali:
Cali, when you left me one year ago, I had to shut down in order to process what was taking place. My world went into safe mode and every minute of every day had to be readjusted to not having you by my side. As time and tears drained the sadness from my soul, the happy memories began to return. Talking about you became easier and once again I could watch your videos and smile. Finally, I felt peace that you were happy, healthy and only a whisper away!
Cali, I know now, that you watch over me and your baby sister, Ruby! I feel safe and secure knowing that we are forever connected and that we will one day be together again!
Cali, I love you! You are mama’s “Honeypot Redemption Piece!”
forever love Sweetie!

There is sorrow enough in the natural way
From men and women to fill our day;
And when we are certain of sorrow in store,
Why do we always arrange for more?
Brothers and sisters, I bid you beware
Of giving your heart to a dog to tear.
Buy a pup and your money will buy
Love unflinching that cannot lie--
Perfect passion and worship fed
By a kick in the ribs or a pat on the head.
Nevertheless it is hardly fair
To risk your heart to a dog to tear.
When the fourteen years which Nature permits
Are closing in asthma, or tumour, or fits,
And the vet's unspoken prescription runs
To lethal chambers or loaded guns,
Then you will find--it's your own affair--
But ... you've given your heart to a dog to tear.
When the body that lived at your single will,
With its whimper of welcome, is stilled (how still!)
When the spirit that answered your every mood
Is gone--wherever it goes--for good,
You will discover how much you care,
And will give your heart to a dog to tear.
We've sorrow enough in the natural way,
When it comes to burying Christian clay.
Our loves are not given, but only lent,
At compound interest of cent per cent.
Though it is not always the case, I believe,
That the longer we've kept 'em, the more do we grieve:
For, when debts are payable, right or wrong,
A short-term loan is as bad as a long--
So why in--Heaven (before we are there)
Should we give our hearts to a dog to tear?
The Power of the Dog
Keeping your family in our prayers Cali, you will be forever in our hearts.
