We'll Miss You Adventure

Raising children rejuvinates many ancient emotions and experiences, for better or for worse.

We had a pet pass away last night. I remember my son's wobbly voice this morning telling me he picked up Adventure and he didn't move, the instant trauma and pain when I confirmed his suspicions, my little girl's wailing. It was worse then when I lost my own father, or helping my wife through the loss of her mother. Pets teach children many lessons in many ways, but nothing's worse watching your own children mourn. I pray it's not something they'll have to do again for a long, long time.
