My sister Carrie was on her way to visit me for my wedding anniversary celebration. I was happy she was coming and agreed to pick her up at the airport.
Almost as soon as she got into the car, she began to tell me stories about her new dog named Dillon, who is a Wheaten Terrier. Dillon was a rescue dog and very loving. My sister doted on him like a new mother over a baby.
When we arrived home, Carrie got a call from her husband, Jerry. He had taken Dillon up to their ranch in Montana. As he usually did, he let Dillon out to run around and explore. But this time, the dog hadn’t returned.
Dillon was missing. Read More

Bella, a lamb, was born on a cold March day in Minnesota. While her twin brother was large and robust, Bella was small and frail. The next morning, mother and son were doing well, but Bella was weak and cold. I carried her into the house, wrapped a blanket around her, then held her in my arms while telling her I loved her and that Sugmad loved her too. Read More

This story is about “Carol.” She lives in cattle country, in a small town near San Angelo, Texas.
One morning Carol went outside. Her neighbor was outside too, and on his lawn were three bulls. One was a huge longhorn, and the other two were little black bulls.
Unfortunately, one of them was lying down. He had eaten too much of a big green bush, and he had become bloated. Now, those of you who work with cattle know that if an animal becomes bloated, if it can’t get up, then it probably won’t make it. It’s going to die.
We knew that at home on the farm too. If there was such a case, the wives would get on the phone and call up the immediate neighbors right away, because maybe one farmer or another knew what to do. Read More

A family was moving from the East Coast to the West Coast of the United States. As soon as they had settled into their new home, the mother knew that this had been the wrong move to make.
Her husband’s new company was very unfriendly toward him, and everything about their new home felt wrong. Over the weeks, the woman became more and more unhappy.
One evening just before dinner, her daughter came into the kitchen. In her hand on a little piece of paper, there sat a butterfly. It was a wood nymph, a brown butterfly with dark spots on its wings.
“Mommy, look what I found outside,” the daughter said. Read More

A woman had a female cat for a pet. They had lived together for eleven years, and there was a very strong bond of love between them. Eventually the cat died, and the woman missed her very much.
About a year after her cat had died, the woman had a series of very clear dreams. In one dream, someone told her, “Your cat is going to reincarnate on Monday, July 31.”
When the woman woke up, she said to herself, That dream was very nice. But I live in an apartment in a big city now. I don’t know how my cat is going to find me.
Then she had a second dream. In this dream someone handed her two tiny kittens. Read More
