A few days ago, I clipped some of our forsythia and brought it into the house. I expected it would last a day or two. By some miracle it's still looking pretty, all these many days later. It has been a bright spot after several days of deep sadness. Our Maddie is resting peacefully now, and I am grateful for those of you who sent your love and support. She was with us for 17 years, so it will take a while to adjust to life without her.
Have a lovely weekend.
