    I wanted to share a brief story about a moment in my life that I still look back on with a sense of comfort and clarity.  The power of just a few words from my Mother has taught me an important lesson about just how powerful love can be.  This story still brings tears to my eyes.  

    It was ten years ago when my cat, Babs, had a litter of four kittens.  The smallest of them all, the runt, was so cute and immediately became my favorite.  He was going to be special.

    It became clear within the first hour that the runt was not okay.  Something was wrong.  Babs would not clean him and I knew that he would die if Ididn't do something.  I tried to hold him near Babs so he could eat, but that didn't seem to work.  I held him and kept him warm.  And then I tried dipping my finger in milk to see if he would eat from it, but he was too weak.  I held him for a while and gently washed him with a warm, damp washcloth. 

    It wasn't long until he just stopped breathing.  I was devastated.  I cried and cried, wishing that I could have done something to help him.  It was at this moment that my Mother sat next to me, placed her arm around me and said the most powerful words I had ever heard:  "He was loved."  ...  Oh, and he was loved.  And I truly felt he knew he was loved.  And that brought me great peace and comfort.    
    
   To this day, I still look back on that moment with a deep appreciation of the wise and comforting words of my Mother.    

    Thanks Mom!
