Last night I lost a very dear friend. Maisie Grace slipped away to her maker while resting her head on my arm and in the arms of Kathy. Five years ago in the McKamey animal shelter she was alone and scared when I went in to console her. She was skittish at first, but I talked softly to her and gave her the first of countless gentle scratchin’s. When I finally had to stand up, she put her paw on my arm. She chose us. Thanks to Kathy we have been privileged to be her friend for almost 5 years. The Shelter called her Maisie. I added Grace to her name and she lived up to it. Maisie was truly a “Grace Dog” reminding us about the simple joys in life, the most important of which is ‘being with.’ I’ve long believed that good dogs and other such little miracles are God’s way of letting us know He loves us and wants us to be happy. Now that her simple spirit has returned to the home of the Holy Spirit of which she’s a part, we feel gratitude for and take solace in the time we shared. Maisie came to us alone and scared, but she left this world peacefully, surrounded by love. We will miss her deeply until she greets us on the other side.
Maisie Grace is credited in all our videos as the Conceptual Consultant, which in her sweet and quiet way… she kinda was. Laser Show Dynamic will continue to honor her special contributions that continue even in her absence help to make this a kind oasis of positive coolness. For those of you who have furry friends, please give them some extra scratchin’s for me.
Love to you all,
