Sometimes we need our words on Wordless Wednesday

Yesterday I learned of the sudden loss of Truffles from Melissa's Mochas, Mysteries and Meows.

We at Squeedunk are heartbroken to read of her passing. And today, we pay tribute to her and offer Melissa, her human mom, our deepest sympathies.

Words fall short of expressing all that we'd like to say to Melissa and to any of our fellow bloggers who are wrestling with the news. It is a stark reminder that life is fleeting. And completely unpredictable.

We ask that you pause and reflect on the below sentiment. Find a way to live here and now, to share your love in every way, every day:

"There would seem to be nothing more obvious, more tangible and palpable than the present moment. And yet it eludes us completely. All the sadness of life lies in that fact." - Milan Kundera (Beautiful Ruins)

Peace, precious Truffles. We are sure your human mom never missed a moment to shower you with love. She will continue to love you til the stars fall from the sky...

  1. I'm just sitting here patting Eli's belly, Eli - the cat I didn't touch for the first 10 years of his life, and soaking it in

    1. Isn't it the most wonderful gift, to finally be able to pet his belly? Oh, how I love that Bessie now lets me touch her! Been talking with all my girls about Truffles, in hopes that she can feel us sending her signs of warmth and peace...
