Do Not Cry Because It Is Over, Smile Because It Happened

Today our beloved Gracie left earth for heaven.  Our hearts are broken but we know she is a free puppy for the 1st time in her life.  I can not imagine how a puppy mill dog might die but I know this family dog passed peacefully in our home, surrounded by love with many tears shed.  She knew she was precious.

She enjoyed some scrambled eggs for breakfast and sitting in the park on a bench overlooking a valley.

Now there are no more seizures, no more blood tests, no more pain in walking.  All that remains is a heart full of love.

Tired and ready to rest.
The Creation
When God had made the earth and sky
the flowers and the trees,
He then made all the animals
the fish, the birds and bees.

And when at last He'd finished
not one was quite the same.
He said, "I'll walk this world of mine
and give each one a name."

And so He traveled far and wide
and everywhere He went,
a little creature followed Him
until it's strength was spent.

When all were named upon the earth
and in the sky and sea,
the little creature said, "Dear Lord,
there's not one left for me."

Kindly the Father said to him,
"I've left you to the end.
I've turned my own name back to front
and called you dog, My friend."
