There is a website called Dear Photograph that depicts people taking pictures from the past and holding them up against the same backdrop in the present. It's a very interesting concept. Little did I think how appropriate it would become to me. (I have submitted this photo to their blog it was printed on September 2, 2013 --->>HERE)
This photograph of Abby is one of my all time favorites. I even had a oil painting done of it which hangs in my bedroom. This photo is from April 2006. She hadn't been with me for a year yet.
So as I sat near the exact same spot where this was taken and tried to line up the foot of the china cabinet I was visited by Boo.
Abby this was just the perfect photo, she was so happy in that sunbeam. I can see the smile so wide on her face. She loved the sun in the morning as it streamed in in this location. As time passed she would get up onto the dining room table at the edge and catch the rays as they came in during the morning hours. In her later years she discovered the chair tucked away in the corner of the dining room and it was with greater frequency that I found her there. I could always look as I was preparing dinner and see her little face that would poke around the corner. That was one of the harder things to change after she flew away. Looking at that chair and seeing it empty. So it was a happy emotion to see Gracie take up residence in that chair. Not often, but often enough. A kitty needs to be in that chair.
I don't know what she saw.
Because all she could see was the upper part of the china cabinet from this angle.
I would like to think Abby was watching us.
I sure do miss her.
And I will for the remainder of my days.
I love you Abby
to the MOON
again, and again and again.
If you have a moment please stop by and light a candle for Abby. The gratefulness candles only stay lit for 48 hours and then they go out. For those who have a candle it means so much to have visitors light the way for their loved ones and to keep their lights from being extinguished.. You may do so HERE--->>> Abby's Candles
Thank you so much.
