A Thread for Our Pets That Are Still With Us
I thought this sub-forum should include a thread or two for our beloved pets that have not yet passed. So many are in tribute to our loved ones that have passed, which is right and appropriate, but how about those still with us that give us love and comfort?
Our Mac - a 29 year old Quarterhorse - is why we ever came to our farm, and why we ever knew my greatest love, Fi. Were it not for him, we would have never bought this farm and all the blessings that entailed. Were it not for him and his life-threatening injury that day, I might have traveled into to work and possibly been at a meeting in the Pentagon on 9/11 at the point of impact - where I lost a very good friend on that fateful day whom I might have been sitting next to when the unthinkable happened. He perished, I survived. One can chalk it up to fate and/or luck, but I see it deeper than that.
Our Mac brought about many great things in our life: buying this farm so dear to us - for him, his pasture pal (Hawk), the obligatory barn cats (Spooky and Smokey - loving by their own right), and most importantly the inclusion of our Fi and Scruffy: the two most loving pooches in my life. Were it not for Mac, none of this would have happened.
Fi and Scruffy are since gone - physically - but Mac, Hawk, and our two kitties are here - shadows of God's love and why we had a most wonderful life together, on this farm we would have never known were it not for Mac.
Our love for our critters extends beyond their current life. They characterize our lives,
So From Mac brought us this farm, and with that his Pasture Pal Hawk, our two pooches Fi and Scruffy, and eventually our barn cats Spooky and Smokey. Fi and Scruffy are no longer physically here (but most certainly with us spiritually). All others are a compilation of God's love that will bring further love.
So, how about our beloved pets that haven't passed, that give us love...???
