From Sorrow to Thanksgiving - a shadorma

Peace comes in the morning after grief has run its course. The sorrow of loss gives way to happy memories. Memories bring smiles and laughter, replacing tears, healing the hurting heart. We give thanks for the years we had. In honor of our cat, Max. RIP 8/10/16 Shadorma syllable count 3/5/3/3/7/5
