"Take an action each day that alleviates suffering in the world. Bring light into darkness."

Here is the test to find whether your mission on earth is finished:
If you're alive, it isn't.
--- Richard Bach

I have come to realize more and more that the greatest disease and the greatest suffering is to be unwanted, unloved, uncared for, to be shunned by everybody, to be just nobody [to no one]
--Mother Teresa

We were not separated at your birth.
It was the moment at which we began our journey toward each other

Good bye Larry Girl!!

As I said in the last post we had to stay at home on Christmas because our chocolate lab is very sick. We are pretty sure she is dying and thought it might happen today. This is very sad because we have had her for almost 17 years, Almost as long as our oldest child. She is a very good with the kids and they all love her very much. My children are devastated. We are bringing her to the vet in the morning, if she makes it through the night, and we expect them to want to put her to sleep!! This photo was taken today. Good bye Larry Girl!!

Edited: Well it happened naturally at 1:00 in the morning. At least it was not on Christmas. She passed away peacefully with her Daddy rubbing her head. It is a sad morning here for our kids and family. 17 years is a long time. It seems like it was just yesterday her and Pman were digging tunnels, searching for treasure, in our backyard in 29 Palms.

Oh, Heather, I'm so sorry. What a gift, though, to have had her as part of your family for so long and for her to let go on her own.
