It is with great sadness I must share that my beloved pet, friend, and baby boy, Sam, passed away this past Saturday afternoon. Friday night he began acting restless, then getting sick. We found out on Saturday morning he had hypothermia, an inoperable mass on his liver, and fluid in his abdomen. He became weak very quickly. We were able to take him home to hold him a few hours before we made the heart wrenching decision to put him down. I love you, Sam. We lost you too soon and will always miss you.
How do I understand the depth of my loss
And all it cost
My heart is heavy
Yet You keep me steady
My life has meaning, this pain has purpose.
You say, “Keep going. Don’t give up”
I lean in as You give me strength. Air to breathe.
You give me breath and life. Hope and help.
Be my breath, my life, Lord. Be my hope and help.
