A Spiritual Awakening
I was brought up to believe in God, but somehow, the God that I was taught about never lived up to his image or the image that the church gave him in my eyes. I have been through many ups and downs in my lifetime, and it was almost always one of my pets that helped me through it. They were unconditional and never expected anything other than the same unconditional love they gave to me back in return. I rescued Buddy from what might have been a horrible life for him and promised him that he would never be given less than my all. This tiny little being was counting on me to help him grow and find joy in his life; I did my best but little did I know it was he that would change my life in a way that was so unbelievable and life-altering. This story is not about his life but about the end of his life and how it changed mine forever.
