My heart is broken
Could I please ask for your prayers for my family?
This morning, as we were about to take our two smallest boys for a haircut, our puppy, who had been behind the house, found his way to our driveway out front. We had no idea. He was killed instantly when our van backed over him.
My oldest and youngest boys are sad, but seem to be pretty OK. My six year old animal lover? His sobs are ripping my heart out of my chest. The same little boy who grieved our old dog Sophie for months. The same little boy who grieved just last month for his hamster. And now this. I simply don't know what to say or do that will comfort him at all.
But I think my heart breaks for my husband the most. He, too, is an animal lover, and was already very attached to Titus. To say he is crushed is an understatement.
So will you please pray for my sad little family today? We sure could use it...
