Quoteworthy: Roald Dahl, 1916-1990

"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it."
-Roald Dahl

Sasha Fierce Roman, February 1, 2008-September 13, 2016

In loving remembrance of my beloved Sasha, who came to us on election night 2008. She deserved a much longer life but the 8 years that we were blessed to have her will always be cherished. When I found out that we shared a birthday, I was positive that she was sent into my life for a reason. One other synchronicity will always stick with me. Shortly before Sasha came into our family, I asked my Mom for a cat. She was hesitant about adding another animal into our family so as a "consolation", she bought me a toy cat with black and white fur. Eerily enough, Sasha looked identical to this figurine.

I've always been an animal lover. The amount of joy and enrichment that they bring into our world is unparalleled. I'll never forget the way Sasha snuggled on my lap when I was sick or how her companionship comforted me when I was going through a difficult time in my life. I loved squeezing her paw and listening to her purr. She was gentle but adventurous and always eager to explore. She chose our family and we gladly adopted her into our home. I will never forget her magical spirit.
