We Had a Little Life – Thankful Thursday

We had a little life

Given to us from on high

A little, furry life

So small and black

We had a little life

Given to us from on high

That hissed and scratched

So fierce and burning bright

We had a little life

Given to us from on high

So fragile and small

Struggling to live each day

We had a little life

Given to us from on high

We had a little life

Who went back home to the sky


Little Shadow passed away. He wouldn’t eat, wouldn’t drink. He hurt so much all the time. He just lay down and though we tried to feed him through the eyedropper once more, he would not. We had him for such a short time and I am forever grateful for his fierce little life with us. By the time this post goes up, it will have been two months to the day since he passed on. His life was a miracle for he lived longer than he should have after his accident and for the month or so after the accident he was happy and playful before he suddenly wasn’t.

Cherish the time that you have, you don’t know how long it will be. Hold close the ones you love and tell them, in actions and in words, just how much they mean to you.

Check out the original Thankful Thursday. (Will update link when able.)
