Up until about a few days ago, Christmas couldn’t come quicker. I love this time of year, although it has some unfortunate memories of close family members passing. I miss what once was, but also enjoy starting new traditions with my new little family. This year was going to be filled with baking Christmas cookies we love and driving around sipping hot chocolate searching for fun Christmas lights.
Until Monday happened…
..and my Christmas spirit has suddenly left me.
On Monday we found out some devastating news about our rottweiler, Mia. Unfortunately they are saying she won’t be with us too much longer. Pat and I are choosing to pray over her and believe for greater things, whatever they might be. However, these past few days have been filled with tears and heart ache. Our very close friends also moved to Florida this week, which has been difficult as well. And Christmas is still right around the corner.
We are trying to be “normal.” Trying not to watch her every move, trying not to over-analyze. Trying to enjoy Christmas.
I am sending out a prayer request….for our beloved girl and us as we try to make it through this time of year. I’m asking for prayers about peace and comfort, for all of us. Animal lovers out there can understand that she is like a child to us. Thank you, we so appreciate it. <3
