It's crazy that just going to the children's museum can fill me with so much gratitude. I never thought we would be the kind of family who got to got to go to those kind of places. It was amazing to watch ruby play. A miracle.

Gone from my sight- Henry Van Dyke
I am standing upon the seashore. A ship, at my side,
spreads her white sails to the moving breeze and starts
for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength.
I stand and watch her until, at length, she hangs like a speck
of white cloud just where the sea and sky come to mingle with each other.
Then, someone at my side says, “There, she is gone”
Gone from my sight. That is all. She is just as large in mast,
hull and spar as she was when she left my side.
And, she is just as able to bear her load of living freight to her destined port.
Her diminished size is in me — not in her.
And, just at the moment when someone says, “There, she is gone,”
there are other eyes watching her coming, and other voices
ready to take up the glad shout, “Here she comes!”
And that is dying…

Ruby second Halloween was quite the success. We went up to Park City and trick or treated on Main Street. There were thousands of people and dogs dressed in costume. It was a little one year olds dream.
This holiday was much harder on me than I thought it would be. There were several times where I had to stop and take a moment And cry. I sure miss my sweet little Lila. I miss dressing her up for Halloween. I miss that little laugh that she had when I put it on her Sleeping Beauty costume. Sometimes it's all too much. I feel very empty sometimes. Thank goodness for Ruby or this holiday would have been unbearable
