Our hearts are broken...sweet Bailey is gone...

Our hearts are broken... We've known this was coming, but that didn't make it any easier. Thinking logically about it, I was ok, but my emotions don't agree. Bailey hasn't been doing well for a while now and we could see her health getting worse and worse. I have shed more tears in the last few days then I would like to admit. 

Explaining this to our daughter was the toughest thing we've ever had to do, but she is strong and she will be alright, in time. 

I did take some time alone with her and spend a special day for just she and I. We went for a ride in the car, for a walk in the woods, and we hung out at the lake for a while. We both enjoyed ourselves and I got some great photos of my beautiful Bailey. 



  We Lost a Friend

We lost a special friend today
the kind you can't replace,
and looking at her empty bed
We still can see her beautiful face.
We know she's in a special place
our Lord has for such friends,
Where meadows, fields and flowers
help make them strong and whole again.
We know she's watching over us
She'll be with us when we cry,
So with one more kiss on her beloved head
We told our friend goodbye.
I love you Bailey. WE love you. So much.
