I must have done something right almost 9 years ago.
Although I was secretly concerned I was screwing up my Zusher’s life, I went ahead and got her a sister.
Kasia, being part chow, well, let’s just say although she knew her place in line, she always walked to the beat of a different drummer. When Zush had left me forever, I thought,” Where am I going to get the quiet comfort I got from Zush?”
I adopted Kasia, figuring she’d have a great roll model in Zush.
Well, now with both of us sick, someone is showing us that she graduated from Zushie’s nursing school. Kas understands we are not well, and stays right by my foot as if she needed to take my pulse. Sure, I still make her meals, but there is a lot of down time on my end. It’s as if she knows that Momma will be up and around soon.
Zush would be so proud of you, Kasia.
