Overcoming

landon and calli june 2015

 

It’s hard to believe that a year ago I wrote: this.

Since that day my son has went through a rigorous home recovery program, had good days and bad days, got married, moved out, moved back in for a bit more recovery and moved back out again. It hasn’t been an easy road, but it has been so worth it. Today he is clean and sober.

Trust and Obey. No matter how bad it seems, God is bigger.

What joy to see him healthy! This week we celebrated life at the local pizza place where Landon and Calli proudly and ceremoniously announced that they are having a baby girl. A granddaughter for us! Imagine that!

I want to thank you all, again, for your prayers. I hope this update encourages you and renews your strength.

Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise. Jeremiah 17:14

Simon

 For nearly 14 years this dear dog kept watch.

Sitting grandly on the front steps he would look out toward the north with an air of importance.

My kids don’t know life without him.

He was born around the same time as our boy Jace.

Riley and him were best friends.

He was deathly afraid of water and car rides.

Cats would sleep on top of him.

He never (purposely) killed another creature.

He was the biggest Saint Bernard our vet had ever seen.

He thrived on table scraps.

He loved walking to my mom and dad’s and if we didn’t want him to follow us we had to be sneaky because he somehow knew when we were going there.

He would give random visitors rides whether they wanted rides or not and there has been more than one awkward moment of delivery men riding up to my door.

He lived a good, long life. (nearly 14 years)

That is 98 dog years.

Though his old bones were getting achy he would jump and leap like a puppy every time we came home.

Yesterday was his last day.

We will miss you like crazy big, old, loyal, slobbery, affectionate, stinky, darling dog.

Simon

A series of unfortunate events happened Thursday morning and Simon was injured.

Though we tried our best to nurse him through it he was suffering and had to be put down. I cried like a baby.
