Five years ago today I said “See you later.” to my sweet and sassy golden girl. Can’t believe it’s been that long already.
This was taken the day she discovered spaghetti is human rawhide. I managed to drop some uncooked spaghetti on the floor which she quickly retrieved. She then went outside and laid in the evening sun just holding her strand of spaghetti until she was ready to eat it.
So I am going to honor her memory today by playing outside, without a mask, as the fresh air is good for the body and soul. Rommie was all about embracing this God given day by playing. I suggest you do the same.
This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.Psalm 118:24
Enjoy your day running free in heaven and partying with Daddy and Grandma and Grandpa’s. Love and miss you my golden girl.
