A Time of Sadness

My friend Monty Q's littlest babybean, who we affectionately called "Sprout," is gone, after a terrible fall. My heart is full of sadness.
There is a sacredness in tears.
They are not the mark of weakness,
but of power.
They speak more eloquently
than 10,000 tongues.
They are the messengers
of overwhelming grief,
of deep contrition,
and of unspeakable love.

- Washington Irving


Little Sprout, you touched the hearts of many. I will never forget you.

I'm so sorry to hear this. My heart is breaking.

Beau Beau & Angie said...

What a beautiful picture that captured your pretty face and pose and reflection. Thank you for your information about our friend Sydney. We never thought about hearing or eyesight. That kind of makes sense because maybe the anesthesia brought it on since she's 16.

It's so hard to even believe Sprout is gone. It is just beyond imagination for us that this could happen to such a young soul.

Susan said...

I am so sorry for your loss. Sprout will always be in your heart and in your mind. May you feel the love of the angels surround and enfold you and yours.

We gave you the best friend award. When you are up to it stop by and pick it up.

With love, Susan
