I'm an adult now ...

I had to make a painful adult decision today. I made the choice to put my sweet Maggie kitty down. She has been suffering from cancer for a long time and had finally gotten to the point of absolute misery. I struggled and cried, but I knew it was best for her, so today she made her journey home. I don't know that I feel peace yet, but I know my Dad was waiting for her on the other side. 

My dear friend Kari posted this picture for me on Facebook ... 


And here is an example of what made Maggie so special to me



 I know that in the grand scheme of things there are many things that are so much worse, I just wanted to say that the loss of a great friend is hard to bear. Furry or otherwise. Thank you for everyone who sent words of encouragement and shared stories of how to cope. 
Visit the WHERE WOMEN CREATE Facebook page to read the comments. If you are in a similar situation it will be so helpful. I know it made me feel better to realize that I wasn't alone. 


Rest in peace dear Mags Rags. I will miss you.

  1. Oh Paige...I'm so sorry. I know it's hard. I lost my kitty 2 years ago and still haven't the heart to get a new kitty yet. I miss her so. I know your Dad is giving her all kinds of kitty treats and love up there...

  3. Oh, our furry friends give us such loyal and unconditional love. The void when they leave us is big and wide. So sorry.

  6. I don't think love is ever not in the grand scheme of things dear one. I am so glad I came here from Jo's list. You are knowing what love is and it is recognized new friend. I went and put you on today's post because this touched my heart. Blessings and comfort.

  7. It's so sad to have to make decisions like this. Our pets just don't have the life span we do, and that's what makes it hard, we will have to say our final goodbye at some point. But the comfort they give and the joy is all worth the sadness in the goodbye. I do hope you can find another kitty so sweet!
    Hugs, Heidi

  8. So sorry for your loss. Those bundles of fur make me wonder how it is they do all they do and barely lift a paw.

    Take care,
