Ascension Day
a myriad of ways
to be reborn

First of all we want to say a warm-hearted thank you for all your heart-felt messages and condolences we received after Eivor’s passing. It means a lot and it is deeply moving how so many of you feel a connection to him and his amazing spirit. He looked at everything in life with love and I am sure he could feel the love you have for him and your own animal friends and companions too.

As promised yesterday, I am sharing a few more special moments from the last days of his life today and over the next few days.

We wish you all a blessed Thursday and a peaceful rest of the week,

with love from Pearl and Xenia xxx

  1. SMiLes Dear Xenia
    This Reminds me of
    Our Lovely Oak Tree All
    Then Really Grounding
    me to Our Living
    Breathing Earth
    So Many Years
    in Mechanical
    Cognition of

    Dead Work
    For Bucks

    Still For a Living i Guess
    Yet When Hurricane Ivan
    Destroyed that Tree Part
    of me Felt So Lost Yet What Still To Find What
    Always Lives So Colorful As Living Tree Within

    And Again A Small Twig Grew From the Stump
    of Our Beloved Tree i Convinced my Wife Not to
    Take it Away And Now The Tree Has Grown In A

    Way Newer
    And Freer

    It Never
    Was Before

    And This is How
    We Come to Be
    And Love Even More

    Reborn From What
    GoeS And GRoWS AGAiN..:)

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear LuAnne. Eivor was the kindest soul and a much-loved member of our family. He was three years old when we adopted him and we are so grateful to have shared our journey with him for nine blissful years. We still feel his presence from time to time and have so many memories to treasure πŸ’œ xxx
