Today was such a sad day. The misty fog shrouded the world around me turning the world to a silent spector to my pain and bringing a solemness and stillness to life. It so reflected my mood. Or maybe my mood reflected it.
I watched as three of my babies walked out the door to go to new homes. The pain in my heart was so strong. The tears flowed. It wasn't quite as bad a saying good bye to the man I loved, but it wasn't far off. And now there are six more to go.
Promises have to be kept and I made a couple. The vibrant colors around me have changed to shades of grey with the mist. My time is short here. But the separation from my babies...my shelties I raised from puppies, my birds, some of them hand fed....oh how that hurts.
But each painful step of this short journey brings me one step closer to peace and another promise fulfilled. I promised my babies good homes. They are getting them. I made a promise to my daughter. That will be fulfilled in a couple of weeks.
Now I watch my babies ride away. Tolkien, in his Sindarin elven language, had words that meant lonely lady...erebrin. That is me. I am alone. I am lonely and my heart aches for my babies.
I watch down the road when each goes, disappearing into the mist, and a piece of my soul goes with them. What will be left when the last baby goes? As each leaves my life, the pain fills my heart and the tears flow.
Good bye my babies.
