"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

For My SIster...

My sister's heart is breaking a little today.  This is why and this is what she wrote...
I wonder if you have every been given a gift that taught you a different way to love? My gift was born on at my home on Christmas Eve 2000, an adorable blue and white pit bull puppy named Asia! She was a tiny little girl that just wanted to be loved. Over the years she showed me a lot about what love should be. She never cared if I was busy and it cut in to our time together-whether I was happy, sad, silly, or mad she was constant and never changed. All she wanted to do was love me for no particular reason, and to get a little love back. She showed me that love never judges. She played a part in my engagement and became a mama all in the same weekend. She made us a family. We had to say good-bye to our sweet girl yesterday. I held her face in my hands and looked into her eyes and told her how much we loved her as she took her last breath. A good friend told me that even though we lost our girl yesterday, God got a new puppy...and I know it is true. There will be no more pain or sickness and she will breath easily again. Thank you Big Mama for all of your love - if only we all could give love so freely.
 I love you my sister and we will all miss your sweet girl.

So, I come to start getting caught up on your week, and I find this post... *sniff*

She looks like a sweet dog, and I know how much it hurts to let a pet go. I hope that your sister and her family are doing ok.
