Good Bye Peach

Tomorrow is the day we are going to put Peaches down. She has lasted almost a month since we found out about the cancer. It's never a good day to call and schedule an appointment for your dog to be put to sleep. She is suffering now. The tumor is large and she can not eat dog food anymore. She doesn't even run out of her dog house when we come out. We spent this afternoon letting her run around the yard, play with the kids. A lot of neighborhood kids came and said good bye. I've answered a lot of questions about death and cancer. Kids just can't seem to wrap their arms around death. Maybe growning up doesn't make it any easier.

Tonight we had Kyle's parents and Kanice (Kyle's sister) over for dinner and family night. Kandice was Peaches original owner. She has always loved Peaches. She let Peaches come live with us when she went away to college. Thank you so much Kandice!! We all went around the table and shared memories about Peaches. We then had family prayer. We've had an outpouring of love and peace in our home. I'm thankful for a loving Heavenly Father...He cares about all of our sorrows.

Wish us luck tomorrow.
