The Little Ship

To say I’ve had my share of loss in my life would be an understatement. I never knew my mother. My own child died. My best friend in 2016. Many others. And of course furry friends who have crossed that rainbow bridge. I heard ‘The Little Ship’ years ago when Maria Shriver read it at Tim Russert’s funeral and it always stayed with me. So I decided to do a little drawing because I was thinking about it after a funeral I attended a few weeks back. I decided to draw animals, but the words apply to us all. If you happen to come across this post and are grieving, I hope it gives you some measure of comfort..wherever you may be in the world.
