Yesterday, my dog was taken to the vet. It turned out to be a situation of dire-straights. Surgery was needed or he would die.
It wasn't long ago that my wife found out that she had cancer. Talk about dire-straights. Well, she eventually died. I have never been so distressed in my life.
I was amazed at how the situation with my dog flooded me with emotions. I had to deal with a doctor, sickness, money, loss, lack of control, tears, and fear. It took me back to my wife and the love and challenges that came with illness.
But in all things, I remember that I can turn and should turn to God.
