Samson: Amazing Grace.........
Mommy: What did you say?
Samson: You know I've been so very sick and now I feel much better. But why I said it was because when I was sick, I felt like I was wrapped in a big, fluffy cloud. I was just thinking back on that. Then I felt like Angel came back and licked my face so I could get well again. Oh, mommy, I miss her so. Then I felt like all the warm and fluffy thoughts everyone sent to me got wrapped around me, like a blankie, and made me feel much better. Is that possible?
Mommy: Yes, Samson, it's called prayers and, you are right, it is amazing Grace. I miss our Angel so very much too.
Samson: But mommy, when I couldn't see, you cried a bucket of tears. You stayed up all night and cried and cried. I heard you.
Mommy: I know baby, that's because I felt so bad for you, so young and not being able to see.
Samson: I was very scared when you took me to the smiley people's place. I hoped they could help me without sticking a big needle in my eye.
Samson: It was very scary to be there, I couldn't see at all and kept bumping into things. When they took me away from you, I thought I was done for.
Mommy: But, Samson, the vet saved your eyesight. He is a very kind and gentle man and he is a good vet too. He figured out what might be wrong with you and gave you lots of medicine to make you well.
Samson: I know mommy, I've been there five or six times now, and no needles. He takes my head in his hands and gently examines my eyes. I like him so much, I just have to lick his face every time. He doesn't mind.
Samson: The best visit was when the vet said I didn't need to take those nasty pills anymore. Just eye drops once a day. Which I don't mind because daddy gives me treats afterwards. But he said it might come back, didn't he, the vet?
Mommy: Yes, Samson, that's why we have medicine and that's why we check you every day. I'm happy you're doing so well, you're just like before.
Mommy: Yes, Samson, I promise. Now, should we thank Gracie and everyone else for their prayers and good thoughts that had so much to do with you getting well again?
Samson: Yes, mommy, here goes: Dear Gracie, Puddles, Sophie and all my human friends, Thank You for helping me get well again. You are the best friends a dog could have, XOXOXO, your Samson
Have a nice day everyone!
