As some of you may know, one of the things I do on the side is dogsit. Currently, I am living with a pitbull named Leo while his owner is overseas, near the hotzone, serving with the US Marines. While I've always had respect for those who serve and put their lives on the line, I have never really seen it from the perspective of those waiting at home.
Dear Father in Heaven who created me to man's best friend,
Please protect my daddy...I do so miss him.
He has been gone a while and I don't know where he went.
Sometimes when I miss him I go into his closet to get his scent.
Mommy takes good care of me, but it is not the same.
I know my daddy is stressed sometimes so then we play a game.
I do my best to cheer him up, but who does that when I'm not around?
Please God, bring my daddy back safe and sound.
This was written earlier in the year when things were heating up in the middle east. But it is no less poignant now with the worldwide covid 19 crisis. Hope everyone will take this time to appreciate what you have and those who work behind the scenes to continue to give us those freedoms.
