Yes, he was old and yes, we knew it was coming but we didn’t know when or how.
We actually prayed it wouldn’t be for at least 4 more years. Sadly, sometimes life doesn’t work out the way we want it to.
Although we had to say goodbye for now, we know Blackie is now running through God’s garden, digging holes and baying at the rabbits up there.
Blackie, we hope you know that we will always love you. May you rest in peace now. Free of the aches and pains of old age. Free of any boundaries and fences. May you enjoy unending bowls of your favorite food and fresh water. May you have fun playing with the rabbits and smell-free skunks up there too. Amen.
Summer is usually the time when families start to think of activities they can do together. With the weather being so nice, most of us try to think of things we can do outside.
Why not try gardening?
If you plant things that your family eats, you can save money, eat better and help the environment all at the same time!
Seriously. Do you know how far your food has to travel to get to you? Think of all the packaging they need to use so that your food stays fresh through the trip and the wait time in your refrigerator or pantry. Plants also help replenish our air with oxygen and our soil with nutrients.
If you are interested but aren’t sure where to start, head on over to Kids Gardening: Helping Young Minds Grow. It’s a resource provided by the National Gardening Association, so you know they will have some great, tried-and-true ideas!
Have fun, stay safe, and God bless,
