Hello my friends. It has been a tough couple of weeks. On Tuesday, April 2, I was able to hold our beloved and cherished cat, Suzie, as the vet administered the medicine that would end her suffering and pain. 😦
It is very difficult to write this. My thoughts are all over the place, along with my emotions. People that have never had a pet or experienced the loss of a pet, may not understand the depth of love and connection you can feel towards an animal. Dogs and cats give truly unconditional love!
The one thing that has been constant through the illnesses that brought us to this point with her is God!! His perfect peace, love, and comfort has wrapped around each of our hearts and has given us the courage and strength to handle this in the best way possible for our beloved pet Suzie.
I have to say, I am so proud of the courage and strength both of my daughter’s have shown during this difficult time. Many of the things they have shared with me only come down to God-given wisdom, peace, and grace! It truly shows that the Holy Spirit is active and working in their hearts! Praise God!!
My husband Steve has been my steadfast partner through all of this. He went to every appointment with me and helped me make the decisions that have been so hard. Thank you, my love.
Our hearts are broken, but God’s peace, love, and healing has all ready begun to repair the hurt that takes place during the loss of any kind.
Our beloved, Suzie Q
What an absolute joy she was to our family! She joined our family when our oldest daughter, Suzanne, was six years old. She picked out her name, Suzie, and from the start they were best buds. They spent two and a half years together before our youngest daughter, Savannah, joined in on the laughs, silliness, joy, and smiles that having a playful cat brings into one’s life!
Our oldest daughter is now twenty-two, so that means our precious kitty spent sixteen years with us! What a blessing from God!
We will cherish every memory we had with our sweet girl. She was a perfect gift from God for our family! Here are a few other pictures of her. Rest in peace, sweet girl. You will forever hold a special place in our hearts! 🙂
All the glory to God!!
