Photo Hunt 2015 ~ Present~

Our first word this year has multiple meanings.
On January 2, 2015 our cat, NALA, passed peacefully from this life to the next. The many memories I have of her 18 + years as a member of our family are very present in my mind today. If you take the meaning of present to mean a gift she was was that too. Our younger son selected her at the animal shelter for his 7th birthday. Although she was getting weaker over the last couple of months  she rallied for one more Christmas with the family. Also, when we brought her home I told her she couldn't leave us until our younger son finished school. She took her responsibility seriously. Our son completed his BS degree in December. NALA was a great gift to our family and will be ever present in our memories.


  1. This is a beautiful tribute. Please accept my condolences on the passing of your Nala. You were a gift to each other :)

  2. A good post and sure are beautiful prim roses.
    Coffee is on

  3. I am sorry for your loss, I know what a huge part of your family a pet can be.
    She will always be present in your memories!
    Happy PhotoHunting in the New Year ~
