Every Fall and Winter the sun comes in later in the
afternoon in a special way into the kitchen.
I photographed Abby many times there.
She especially loved sitting on the kitchen table
looking out the window basking in the warmth
of the seasonal sun.
Annabelle, not as much.
I rarely find her on top of the table, but this month I did.
I like the contrast of shadow and light in this
photograph. I always remember Abby in the
same spot and it brings back lots of memories.
The period of time between Thanksgiving and Christmas
always evoke strong recollections.
It can be a time of melancholy mixed amongst the tidings of joy.
Even though I've lost many humans in my life,
the loss of my beloved Angel
weighs especially heavy.
Animals give us unconditional love, which is seldom
if not impossible from humans.
So our hearts are even more porous than usual
when we have lost the one who was so special to us.
I miss my Abby, but I am oh so grateful
she graced my life for over 8 years.
I will always remember that.
