Suffering just ‘is’

“Sometimes suffering is just suffering. It doesn’t make you stronger. It doesn’t build character. It only hurts.”

— Kate Jacobs; ‘Comfort Food’

Loss

‘And loss, strangely, can attune you to what is beautiful about existence, even as it wounds you with what is awful.’ — Ryan Vandeput

‘I thought that love could last forever. I was wrong.’ — W. H. Auden

I have no idea when this photo was taken – all I know is that it’s within the last 4 years, but I found it buried in a folder amongst some other random photos. Anyway, this is obviously our beloved Lucy, who died on February 24th 2014 aged 22. I’m still holding her ashes for the family… nobody really knows what to do with them, and although I happy being her custodian, it’s time she found her final resting place. But, I believe she’s already at peace and either at Rainbow Bridge waiting for our return, or in her spiritual forever home…

I’ve found another photo of Lucy, this time dating back to December 2010, when she was already 18 years old. Who knew she would live & love until she was 22?! She looks good in this photo. Our favourite girl… you’ll be laid to rest soon.
