Harper-Doodle Dandy would have been three today. I still miss her and think about her all the time, probably more than is healthy, but I know that her memory will eventually leave my mind and settle in my heart. She brought Bob and I a lot of joy– in my mom’s words, “It was like your hearts just opened up.”
“When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy. When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.” Khalil Gibran
She came to do a job, and she did it so well that she didn’t even have to stay very long. I know she is thundering through some woods in the sky, flushing cloud-deer.
