Because there are these days when you wake up to hamsters dying and the day is filled with just watching a pet die a slow death and when your dad comes over because death is never scripted and moral support is important and when Ryan who was never a fan of any rodent absorbs text after text while teaching a bible class and checks in on his breaks for updates. 

let love and faithfulness never leave you. bind them around your neck write them on the tablet of your heart
