Day 372: Heavy Heart

To have, To love, and then to part, is the greatest sorrow of the heart.

Sweet, Beautiful Dakota
Passed from This Life and Soared to the Heights of Heaven
June 24, 2009

Our hearts are heavy, and we send our love to her Mom and Dad, and the OP Pack.
True and boundless love is defined, in part, by selfless acts and decisions.
We know that your hearts feel empty tonight... and yet so incredibly full.

Not so long ago, someone very wise told my the Mom...

Dogs live for today, rejoice in it and give today everything they have.
They have no fear of tomorrow, nor their eventual passing.
It is their people who have the fears and the sorrows.
What is important to the dog is love.
And every moment of love in today.
And after that... nothing else.

These words were little comfort to the Mom at the time,
but she often reflects back on them...
and thinks to her self that she could learn lots from us dogs.
