Good Morning to you; this just got me singing a song I sang to my daughters, in the morning, when they were growing up. Firstly, I am so thankful for all your prayers, my friends-for my little guy Hunter. As of this morning, he is back to his normal self, lifting his leg and not having any other issues. I will talk to the vet today though and also get symptoms to look for in the future with bladder issues etc. Bichons have several issues they are prone to and I don't want to be caught off guard. This pic was taken last night while he was on my lap cuddled up. I'm not sure he liked it when I grabbed my phone, but I figure I've been slacking off in posting photos. Yesterday, late afternoon, I ran over to my church and helped with Samaritan's Purse-Operation Christmas Child. I had never done this before and hadn't even heard of this program until this year, but it was wonderful just to lend my hands. I have done several other ministry related Christmas outreaches before, but what I like about this particular program is that everyone can easily fill a shoe box; in fact you can do it instead of going out to lunch one day. For those of us retired and on a fixed income, this is doable. I love to know that children might just have a brighter Christmas because of my small effort. Even my daughters children are getting involved-yippee! This organization was started by Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham and if my figures are correct they have given away(as of last year)one hundred million boxes around the world. So today, I am so thankful for this organization. I am thankful for all those who donate these boxes in order for a child to have a Christmas present.
I am thankful that my husband successfully got one moving truck packed and a good amount of his brothers belongings moved to his home. I'm not sure if they are going to try to get another truck load or not. I am thankful that my hubby has a heart of gold and is willing to go help his brother. Since I don't like being home alone, more than a day, I am thankful for our little Hunter who keeps me company. I am thankful for the unconditional love of dogs and that even from a young age, I had such a passion for dogs.
I hope you have a wonderful, thankful day! Noreen & Hunter
