89 Days

Here we are just 89 days away
And the wedding bills are too much to pay.
We had hoped by this time we would have no balance
But unforeseen circumstances have made this a challenge.
We have the cutest boxer pup
Got nfected twice not once with issues that tore him up.
His health issues were not done
5k in bills before he was one.
Then just a couple months ago
He tore his ACL and that was a blow.
We reached out to a dog charity that helps with bills
Their response gave me the chills.
They stated that our application didn't get approved
What they suggested was beyond crude.
They told that it would be cheaper
To take his leg off, what a bunch of creepers.
We went ahead and repaired his leg
Hank was so happy he could now walk instead.
That wouldn't be our last stroke of bad luck
My fiance lost his job and that really sucks.
I've been entering every contest I can
In hopes of winning and sticking to our plan.
Of paying off our wedding very soon
And not going into debt which would make me swoon.
So if we do win a price in any amount
Know for certain we're making it count!
