Bella

My little sweet cavi passed away this morning and it really hit me so hard. This tiny 12 pound little forever puppy took a piece of my heart.

The last few weeks have been challenging to be honest. It’s been a spiritual separating wheat from the chaff type of experience.

If you are wondering what that means… Its the process in which grain kernel is separated from its inedible husk. It’s a two part process: threshing (to loosen the husk) and winnowing (to get rid of the husk).

Since my diagnosis I’ve seen so many changes in my life and the life of my family. Letting go of things that has already served its purpose can be both challenging and liberating. The journey has been both difficult and beautiful but seeing my family pull together has been inspiring.

We traded fear for courage. Despair for hope. Anger for peace. Bitterness for joy.

Worldly treasures for heavenly ones.

Along the way friends have become family. Relationships have become stronger and sadly some have dissipated.

Losing Bella was never part of my plan and it has definitely been the hardest. See you on the other side of the rainbow.

I took my troubles to the Lord; I cried out to Him and He answered my prayer.

~ psalm 120:1
