Psalm 23

My aunt passed away last week. In the aftermath of her death, everything normal disappeared, and suddenly I was surrounded with family, with children, with friends, with flowers, with food... and with her three beloved dogs.

Today I said goodbye to the dogs, as they found a new home with a wonderful family: the arrival of which taught me the meaning of "godsend." I also photographed all these flowers sent to our family in honor of my wonderful Aunt Joy.

When they found her body, my aunt's Bible was open to Psalm 23. So that is where my heart is, today.

Aunt Joy, you are dearly missed, and I will love you forever.
