Clayton, Spenser, Scooter, Sherman and Stanley: then and now.

January 20, 2010

The thought occurred to me today that perhaps Scooter and Spenser went first in order to prepare me for losing Clayton. As I was standing at the sink I heard one of the boys drinking from the water bowl. The lap, lap, lap had the same cadence as Clayton's, and I briefly thought it was him. I cringed. But then I realized that after time has had the chance to do its thing, I will begin to smile again. That is the lesson I have learned.
