A Sad Dilemma for The Ewe

Oh, Friends. I have just found the missing, dead cat of our Musical (4yo daughter). (MommyX3--you knew it would happen...) Little Kitty is still wearing the red collar Musical saved her chore money to buy. Oh, it hurts to know how sad she'll be. I'm torn between wanting to pretend I don't know where Little Kitty is, hoping Musical will somehow "forget," and just doing the hard thing and gently, tenderly letting her know a hard fact of life. As we pulled out of the driveway this morning, Musical gayly called out, "Goodbye Little Kitty, wherever you are!" I had just spotted the furry, little lifeless body. When Musical sang out her farewell, I nearly burst into tears. Our Lord grows us through things like this, but it sure does hurt. As our Loving Father stretches us, so we must let our little ones stretch. I wonder if His heart hurts the way ours do? Blessings. The Ewe
