I had meant, yesterday, to post something about Sadie Hawkins. I'm just as glad I didn't, since it turns out I was wrong. Sadie Hawkins day is in November, not on Leap Day. However, Leap Day is still the traditional day for women to propose to men.

No, I didn't propose to anyone. I wanted to, but I didn't see anyone yesterday who would have taken it in the correct spirit.

On a less light-hearted note, Wayne died yesterday, at 6:45 pm. I was pretty certain of it last night, even before I received the email from my mom. Wherever he is now, I hope he knows that I love him and I will always miss him.

Added: For my own benefit, mostly. The title of the email Maggie sent out was "Servant, well done!" This is from the hymn Come Labor On and this verse in particular:

Come, labor on!
No time for rest, till glows the western sky,
Till the long shadows o'er our pathway lie,
And a glad sound comes with the setting sun,
"Servant, well done!"


Words by Jane L. Borthwick.

*hugs* I'm sorry. It's true, with the important ones, how you can know before anyone has to call you, isn't it...

Are you coming up? Do you need anything? Can I be useful in any way?

I will come up for the memorial service. It's not yet scheduled; it sounds like if the family decides to do something not at our church, the church will hold a second memorial anyway - probably on the weekend, possibly at regular Sunday service. Nothing is arranged yet as of the last email from my mom.

Assuming it's a weekend, I'll give you guys a call and stop by and meet the kitties. Kitties are good.

Kitties are good. Afraid of the sky, but good.

But tell me if I can help.

Only by letting me meet your kitties.

There's not anything to help with, really. I'm not involved with any of the arrangements or anything, and all I have to do is my own grieving process. I'm of the opinion that cuddling a warm wiggly kitten is more likely to help with that than anything else.

Again, I'm so sorry
My thoughts are with you. Again I say, I'm here should you need anything, anytime.
