Surrounding Maxdog in South Africa with love and prayers...




Most of us have been there and most of us will be there again and again - facing a loss that is unimaginable - a loss so painful that we speak of it in hushed tones and with tears and with our throat closing up so tight we don't know if we can take our next breath.

Dear Max in South Africa is fighting the good fight right now and beside him - right there next to him, loving him and giving him all he needs - is his mom, a woman of immense courage and a heart brimming to overflow with love for her Maxdog.

We can't take the pain away and we can't change the inevitable but we can understand and we can love them and we can bring our universe of bloggers together in a circle to surround Maxdog and his mom with comfort and prayers.

Dear Max, your are loved and all of your life you have given love in abundance. No one, human or canine, could ask for more, or leave a greater legacy when we have shed this earth to live amongst the stars - and - Max, I have a feeling that your star will be one of the biggest and brightest in the midnight sky.

Tender thoughts and much love, Mimi and her gang

Much love and prayers to Maxdog and his family. It's so hard, so very hard to be losing a furkid.

Mimi: with your extraordinary talent with words, you should pen a book. I have a lump in throat and stingy eyes. So many of our thoughts these days are of Max and his incredible mom. They have both touched our lives in ways that seem almost out of this world. Beautiful collages.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Dear Mimi, Scout and Freyja.
As I read your words, I knew that I read, were feelings that I felt and yet I had no words to explain.
You put the words visable for us all to hear. But we cannot see, because we too because our eyes are raining.
I have wanted to say words, but did not take the dare to share.,,,
I don't understand,,,,,,,,
I know you don't understand either, and so many of us just want to surround them in love.
I will put some love in some bubbles and send to Max and his mom, and family.
love
