Hi parents or grandparents or kids at heart. I’m so glad you have found this podcast. I wanted to make sure you knew that today’s episode is meant to help you and your child talk about some difficult things like loved ones and pets passing away. Death is not an easy subject to talk about so If you don’t think your child is ready for this conversation, feel free to skip this episode and come back to it when you need it.
Thank you for trusting me with your child’s imagination. Now onto the story.
Welcome back, kids. In today’s episode Stubby the cat makes a new cat friend who lives inside the house. Did you know there are inside cats and outside cats and that some cats live in both places?
Remember, Stubby is an outside cat and today we find out that Stubby has lost all his outside cat friends.
I know this is kind of a sad story.
Have you ever felt sad?
Maybe you’re sad because you can’t play with your friends. Everybody is kind of stuck in their house right now.
Maybe your sad because a person or a pet you love has passed away (that’s another word for died).
I’ve had a couple of people and animals that I love die too. And even though I am sad at times the pictures I keep in my head and heart help me to remember the happy times with them.
Can you think of some happy pictures of people or pets you love that are no longer around?
Let’s try it together.
What did you see?
Now it’s time to hear this original story called “Through the glass door”
Listen carefully and feel free to pause the podcast at any time you want to ask questions or talk about your feelings with your loved ones.
Ready, set, here we go!
I praise you God because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
PSALM 139: 14-16
