wow. april 2012 will go down in history for my family.
the month started out with a week in hawaii.
and it was fantastic.
until the end of the week when we found out grandma had been in the hospital and subsequently released.
she died the monday after easter.
whirlwind trip to redding, back to work, and a few more days off.
this morning, i received a text from my dad that our dog had to be put to down.
obviously, these two deaths are not exactly on the same spectrum.
nevertheless, the loss of a precious pet can be quite the jab in the heart.
and the crying started again.
but i am grateful that the Lord has allowed things like pets to give us glimpses into goodness and unconditional love.
so long, little pupster.
