Moments Like These
It's moments like these that make me so thankful that we are able to have our children home during the day. My mom and step-dad's dog that they have had for thirteen years had to be put down this morning. I gave her the yellow lab puppy all those years ago when I owned the sire. I was able to send my boys over to meet them when they arrive home so they can help dig the hole for the grave. A 60+ year old man does not need to be doing the job alone of digging the grave in near 100 degree temperatures. I am so very thankful that my boys can be a part of helping in this way. This kind of work and service helps me to have confidence in the kind of men they will become.
