A Special Birthday

Today would have been the 13th birthday of my sweet cousin, NMLH. She passed away after a long battle with a malignant brain tumor on December 1, 2012. She was one of the kindest people that has ever graced this Earth - always ready with a smile or kind word and a helping hand; a drawer extraordinaire; an animal lover and cuddler. Such genuinely wonderful people are so rare, and I am so honored to have had the pleasure of loving her and being part of her family.

I read a story once about a little boy whose dog passed away; afterwards, the veterinarian and his parents were discussing what a shame it is that dogs' lives are so much shorter than humans' lives. The boy piped up, and said he knew why: "People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life - like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right? Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long."

I know this is the same for her.
