I Didn't Know It Would Hurt Like This
There is so much I am thankful for but today I'm feeling a little melancholy. Our beloved family pet, Maizy, of 11-years passed away today. It was all so sudden. I can't go into all the details right now as I'm still a little fragile but, suffice it to say, she is gone.
I feel so silly. I've experienced pain before. But the passing of my dog has taken me a little by surprise. I didn't expect to feel so sad. Unfortunately, this occurred as my kids were heading back to college today. They are having to deal with this grief on their own--away from their dad and I. So, please keep them in your prayers as they mourn the loss of a member of our family.
