There are no ancients before me,
No followers behind:
Only the vastness of heaven and earth
On this mountain terrace
Though heaven may know the ultimate
Joy or Sorrow is our own will.
Deng Ming Dao
Today I will be sad........for my sorrow is great. My oldest and dearest rabbit passed over the bridge today. I knew that the time was nearing, as I could sense the changes that were happening with her. I hated to leave her this weekend, as I feared that she would be gone before I came home. Thankfully she waited for me to come back.
Dandy was my dearest girl. A gentle, gentle soul, who would sit quietly and patiently as I groomed her or when the children and grandchildren pet her. Always a perfect lady and a wonderful mother, my dear tailess bunny.
While I will be sad for today.....tomorrow, I will remember all that she has given to me. Most of the rabbits in my rabbitry go back to this Grand Dame and I will have joy again thru those that will remind me of her gentle ways.
Sleep well my little one
I want to take a moment to thank everyone that emailed me this week. My weekend was as difficult as I had anticipated and to lose this dear bunny on top of it was a bitter pill to swallow. The support of friends in the fiber world is so uplifting........thank you!
