Sophie taught me so many important lessons...like how to chill out and take a nap in the sun (Gosh, that does feel good to do).
She taught me how to look at the world from a different perspective...upside down was her favorite.
She taught me not to take any BS from a man, because she is the queen of the castle...and what the queen wants, the queen gets. Just ask Coco, he'll confirm every story.
Sophie taught me how to be graceful...for even when she was on her last breaths, she looked at you with soulful eyes and knew that it was all going to be ok, no matter what.
She taught me to acknowledge those you care about...for they need to feel needed (especially if they feed you)
And, most importantly...
She taught me that love is simple. Give it and it will come back to you in so many ways.
I will miss your morning hello as I do my business.
I will miss your purr as I scratch you behind your ears.
I will miss you tripping me on the stairs and nearly killing me every morning as we go to get some yummy food for you and the mister.
I will miss looking into your eyes and seeing your beautiful soul.
Sophie is in a better place, I know. And, this is a bit sappy...but I have come to find that the outlet to my soul is here, in front of you. I have no choice but to share it, as many others who have special friends that they call family have faced the same heartbreak.
May God's angels guide you to heaven
on the breath of a dove
far from all the troubles
of your heart
until you are home once again
