My pal Nancy Rue sent me an email I’d been dreading.  Her beloved chocolate lab, Benjamin, was the apple of Nancy’s eye.  A few months ago they discovered a tumor and had it removed, but the cancer spread to Benjamin’s lungs. 

On Friday, Nancy had to say farewell to her beloved Benjamin.  My heart aches for her and her husband.  
And the following is appropriate:

Patty G sent me this link and when I heard this boy talking–well, it made me cry even before I heard the sad news about Benjamin.  Wisdom from the lips of a youngster.  

Take a moment to listen.  It’ll touch your heart.

    oh, that is a tear jerker. And I’m so sorry about Nancy’s doggie.

    Wow, God working again. I think that was the first time I’ve asked you to put a link on your blog. I wasn’t sure what made me even think to do so – well now I know!!! Sometimes I think I could write a book about all the times I’ve looked back and seen how God used me in someone else’s life but even more how He used other’s in my life that had no sound reasoning at the time. I, too, am so sorry about Benjamin.

    Absolutely, Patty. I was a little amazed . . . then, I always am. Shouldn’t be, though. 🙂

    Whoa. I haven’t cried so hard in a long time.

    I blogged this morning about the loss of my dog two years ago today. So I added this link too. Thanks for sharing it.

    Angela, Enjoyed the movie! You should be proud and excited about it.
