We have the designated spot in our house where anything someone wants me to 'see' is left ... so I walk in from work last night to an Ann Taylor bag and a sweet note from Steve in this spot. He had made the exchange for my shoes that I love but were the wrong size ... then I turn on the TV to hear President Obama delivering his speech talking about those who thought they were in a job that they would retire from and are now seeking employment ... I think of Steve and the reason he is gone tonight and I shed a few tears of love for this guy and the challenges he is going through!
All of a sudden I feel a paw on my knee ... Cricket, the amazingly in tune to feelings dog, is sensing my feelings and wants to let me know she cares! So sweet!
