It is suddenly a day when everything is significant. Suddenly, it matters how I spread the jam for the PB&Js. It matters whether we watch Wild Kratts or Peep in the Big Wide World. Suddenly, I notice the socks I’ve chosen today–every detail matters. The day is suddenly etched on my memory. Today is the day that I begin to pass Pocoyo. She will leave me today, or in the next few days, even though I spent last night talking to her soothingly, telling her that we would love it if she could stay.
I am so grateful to her for leaving me naturally, gently, without frightening surgery or harsh medications. She is going home as sweetly as she came. We will miss you, Pocoyo.
