It’s been an emotional week. Filled with lots of tears, lots of second guessing, and lots of worry. In times like these, children can really put things into perspective.
Things said by crank and spank while Charlie (our cat) was dying this week.
1. We can get in a big airplane and visit him in heaven.
2. Don’t cry mommy. Charlie loves you. We love you.
3. (While crying themselves) I’m going to miss Charlie. The doctor can’t make him better?
4. Are there toys and treats in heaven for Charlie? He likes treats.
5. How will Charlie get to heaven?
6. Mommy? Are you still sad? Charlie is in heaven now? But he’s happy. He has all those treats.
7. I miss Charlie. Will he jumping on the clouds?
8. But what if we get a Really big airplane. Can we go visit him and Leroy (our other cat that passed away) then?
9. Mommy? Can I give Charlie a kiss?
10. I love Charlie. I love you.
It breaks my heart and fills my heart all at the same time.
We tried really hard not let Charlie’s death consume us this week, but it seemed reminders were everywhere we turned.
We made bunny crayons and wore bunny ears. We danced and sang silly songs, but our hearts were heavy.
