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...


  1. Praying for you and your family. My heart is broken for you all. I know how much you were enjoying this new little puppy.
    Love & prayers,

  2. That is so very, very sad, Beth. So sad. I'll pray that Jesus brings comfort to your family and especially your little one. My daughter is a huge animal lover, and I can't imagine how she would cope with something like that.

  3. I'm so sorry for your loss.


    PS: Love the new blog look...again.

  4. How heartbreaking.I am so sorry. Your family is in my prayers.

  5. Oh, Beth! I'm so sorry. I know you all loved that little guy so much! Of course I'll pray for your family.


So, what do you have to say?
