“I am a Cat of God”

I found some of Claire’s childhood journals as I was preparing to teach a lesson on Journal Keeping a couple of days ago.  It was delightful to read through them with her and see how words captured really do enlarge our memories.

Here is one of my favorite entries, made by Claire on the 19th of October, 2002:

Today we had Haley’s cat Cinamon’s funeral.  We think he got hit by a car last night.  We burried him in the Powell’s yard.  We put a peice of cement over the place we burried him in.  A lot of people brought flowers to the tombstone.  We sang “I am a cat of God.”  A lot of people were crying durring the song.  Haley and I shared our thoughts and feelings about Cinamon.
