Lord, as you know, today is the one year anniversary of the passing of my Tiny Friend, my constant companion of 12+ years. I still miss him, but I thank you for all the healing and all the wonderful memories and lessons learned. He will never be forgotten or replaced. Thank you so much for […]

Good morning, Lord! It seems like longer than a day ago since I did my last post. I stayed up most of the night with my tiny dog, feeling almost certain he was going to die, and I just wanted to comfort him, let him know he is loved and cared for. He seemed more […]
