RIP Axle

Farmhand found her in a ditch behind bad dog neighbor's place. Her head was smashed. We assume it was a car. We have been having problems with her escaping through the holes that bad dog neighbor's dogs have create throughout our property. And with me unable to do manual labor and husband working full time, we just couldn't keep up with the fence destruction. I will take the blame for her death.

Always sad to lose such a close member of the family. Sorry to hear the bad news!

Oh, I'm so, so sorry for your loss. Please don't beat yourself up about it? You're doing the best you can with what you can do. It's the fault of whoever hit the dog, not your fault.

Loving, sympathetic hugs to you.

Hon, there are things that happen in life when blame has no place. Consider the idea, she had finished whatever job The Man Upstairs had intended for her to complete while she was here.

There is a reason for everything. The challenges you face right now hold reasons for so many things to occur, all for good, though we have no capability for understanding. But we can rest on the fact that The Man Upstairs does have every understanding and always something good to set forth to move forward.

For the pain suffered in loss, especially when it makes no sense, we can always ask God to compensate blessings in return for holding faith in Him, that He knew what he was doing... and he knew the grief such incidents would fall upon us. That's why He gave us the right to ask Him for anything, expect a miracle, and receive whatever HE wishes to bless us with in return for walking while carrying faith in Him to fulfill.

When you finish that math word problem... that answer really IS simple. I promise! LOL Hang in there!

I'm really sorry for your loss and the additional stress this has placed on an already currently strained life. I know you have good things happening too but sometimes the bad outweighs the good. So...I won't get into any platitudes about there being a reason for all of this as I'm not so sure that's true but I will say I stand with you in your grief and frustration, even if it's just over the internet, as a supporter and "listener/reader".

It's very easy to blame yourself for tragedies even if they aren't merited. Cry, scream, lay down with emotional exhaustion and allow yourself to heal both physically and emotionally. Some times those cries turn to smiles and screams to laughter and exhaustion to inspiration. Feel them all, good and bad, in your own way, at your own pace.

Damn, I'm so sorry. I hope you can step away from feeling at fault, as you didn't set out to make this happen.
