Final Walk with Destiny

Please be my guest on my blog Paradise Found to honor and remember our girl Destiny, as we took a walk to all her favorite places.  She is now and will be forever, the Angel of Angel Falls - the Queen of Ten Ass City.

Seventeen degrees below zero....

My girl... tonight it is seventeen degrees below zero.  It is the same damning temperature as it was three years ago tonight... the last night you were mine.  Hard to believe it was three short years ago I was patting and hugging you.  It was the last time I felt your warm breath, the rise and fall of your chest, and the last time I dug my fingers deep into your soft downey fur. 

It was the last time I got to snuggle your face, play with your ears (which you always tolerated, but would flick in mild annoyance)... fuss over if you were warm, comfortable, pain free... was three years ago today.

I am reminded about our last bitter(sweet) cold night together as I pull on a sweater and hat, give a whistle, and JOY bounds out the front door in a furry package of a little White Sprite.  Bounding and playing, frisking and jumping, I laugh at her antics because I can't help myself.  The tears I held for you froze onto my eyelashes, and my laughter hung in the air in front of me.... suspended... pendulous, for a fleeting moment, almost like I could reach out and touch my guffaws .. and then on the breeze the frosty vapors faded away.  I whistle again, and Lexi bounds back in the door, up the stairs, and into my heart. 

Don't cry because it's over... Smile because it happened ~ Dr. Suess

Life, Lexi, and Love lives on .... even when it's seventeen below zero.  Paradise is Found, Destiny my Dear... Paradise is now, Paradise is here.  Love you always and forever...
