Sweet Sprout

Tracey and family,
you are in our thoughts and prayers.

The Lily
Ellen Brenneman

We can’t know why the lily has so brief a time to bloom in
the warmth of the sunlight’s kiss upon its face, before it
folds its fragrance in and bids the world goodnight to
rest its beauty in a gentler place.

But we know that nothing that is loved is ever lost, and
no one who has ever touched a heart can really pass
away, because some beauty lingers on in each memory of
which they’ve ever been a part.

What a beautiful verse. This week life has shown us how short it can be, so we're taking time to tell all our blogging friends how important they are to us. Willow, you and your family have touched our lives dearly and we want you to know you are loved.

Hugs & Purrs,
from Rocky, Sharolyn
& everybody at Artsy Catsy

It's so sad when one so young leaves her family behind to grieve for her.
