Almost three weeks ago, I said goodbye
to my beloved Mabel. She lived a full sixteen years.
My old friend's age caught up with her.
I cried as the vet told what I already knew.
I had to let her go. I stayed with her, as she was put to sleep.
Mabel was with me through my single days to my
pregnancy to see me get married and become a mom.
She got to know Jacob who she protected so fiercely
when I pregnant.
There at times I feel her spirit with me.
Goodbye, my sweet Mabel. We will meet again.
