Blogging and Praying that I never forget these days . . . .

Well, hummm, obviously from the post title you all know what happened today.  And as I write this I am listening to our current first blog song.  It is so appropriate tonight.  Out world has been shook and our hearts are broken, but I am finally at peace after a very long day.  I still hurt, I am still crying, and probably will be for a while.  We were blessed to be given 11 fabulous years with our little "kicker boy" before he went home.  Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers over the next few weeks.  Kix went through a lot with us.  He was my snuggler long before God gave me my wonderful children to hold.  He gave me sloppy kisses when Jay's kisses were far away in Virginia.  He then made the big move with me and lived the crazy schedule of Liberty football, nursing school, and cheerleading.  He was thrilled when we moved back and he could play with his buddies Bruce and Alley again.  Now in recent years he has become Max's best friend.  We will get through this and Max will carry on.  He just hurts tonight because he has never experienced a hurt like this.  This is his first death of any sort.  As much as losing Kix hurts me, it crushes me to watch Max cry out to him about how much he misses and loves him.  I could blog all night about Kix, but I guess I need to wrap it up and go to bed so Jay can hold me like he always does when I am hurting.  God gave me the greatest best friend to become my husband, two beautiful children, and 11 years with a four legged child.  Thank you.  Thank you to everyone who has been a part of Kix's life and especially thank you to all of you whole traveled this road with us today.  You have "held us" and helped us get through the day.  We love you all and just remember now Kix can play ball all day and all night to his little heart's delight.

I am so sorry. When I saw Amanda McFarland had posted 'sorry' on your FB wall I got worried. I can't imagine how you must feel. I know you treated him like your child (because Oscar is the same to me). I can remember when you first got him and we were at the alumni soccer game. He was so cute and cuddly. I know your heart is breaking and you are hurting. Your post broke my heart. I wish I could give you a hug!

I'm so sorry, Jessica. Your post brought tears to my eyes. I know how special a pet can be and how devastating it is to lose them. You're in my thoughts and prayers!
