On this day of "love", our family said goodbye to my younger son's very dear pet, Frosty. We'd had Frosty almost three years. She lived a very long, happy life in our home. She loved everyone, even our dog! And she was loved in return. She adored sitting on your shoulder, just watching the world, or hiding in your hair if it was long enough. She was gentle and curious. She loved to turn her "house" upside down and loved ringing the bell hanging in her cage.
I'm hoping that we've learned from Frosty, and someday, when my younger son is ready, he will pick a new pet. He certainly has enough love to share.
