Thankfulness & God's Faithfulness

I'm so very thankful for this year.  God has always been so faithful to me.  He's protected me, loved me, and given my joy in hard times.  I remember this time last year, I did not want to celebrate any Holidays.  I did not want to celebrate Thanksgiving or Christmas.  I had a heart that wasn't ready to move on or let go.  I had a stubborn heart, one that wasn't willing to listen or heal.  I had a broken heart, one that was not allowing me to be thankful for yet another year.  Even then God provided ways for me to heal and the space I needed, in providing opportunities to stay home for Thanksgiving and to be traveling all through Christmas and New Years.  God was so good to me.  Today I look back and think of just how far God has taken me.  I'm thankful He protected me from a very bad situation and gave me healing in that.  I'm thankful He took me far away from two really hard circumstances and allowed me to start over.  I look back over this last year and the h

Our Dog

Hey all!  So guess what?  We got a dog.  Yes WE got a dog.  But this is probably late news to most.  I meant to post something like this earlier, but I got busy and distracted, but here it is now and with a few pictures.
We got her a few weeks ago and since then it has been an up and down experience. 
My dad and younger siblings really, really wanted a dog and of course they got one.  The rest of us either got talked into it or had no other choice.  But yeah, within a week of determination and seeking and researching we got one.  My mom wanted a dog that would be smaller, that doesn't shed, and a good family pet.  So we got a goldendoodle.
Our main goal right now is train, train, train.  No biting, which she seems to really like, no running away from us, sit, no barking and of course the housetraining.  It's slow and most of the time frustrating, especially when she get's all hyper, but we are getting her now. 
We are going camping this weekend with her, so it will be kind of interesting.  We will see how it goes.
