My 5 lb motivator.......

Tuesday, October 17, 2017



Her name is Patience, and she makes sure I go on long walks whether I feel like it or not. She's in love with life, and her enthusiasm is contagious. There have been days I wasn't happy, and she changed that with her crazy antics, running and leaping through the living room, making silly sounds.



She knows me so well I think she can read my mind. I can't tell you how many times she has come to me, insisting I let her lay in my lap. And when I did I felt comforted and loved. She knows when bedtime is and she comes and gets me when I am late. lol

Of course I have many good, tried and true friends. And I am so very grateful for them. But the friendship she and I have together is precious to me too.

She came into my life because some one had dumped her in the woods near my house. I was on my walk and out she popped, and she followed me home. She was filthy and I bathed her, cleaned her up and took her to the vet. You might say we rescued each other. She needed a home, and I needed a loyal friend.

In my eyes, she is living proof that God will meet all my needs, even before I know what those needs are.

I am ever so grateful that He sent her to me.

    She is adorable and it is so wonderful that you found each other. We lost our Cairn Terrier the end of June. She had been with us for 11 years and we miss her everyday. Pets can mean so much to us and love us unconditionally. I am glad for you that you have Patience. emoticon

    emoticon You have me in tears! What a beautiful Blessing! When I was reading your post all I could think about was the Bible verse about "entertaining Angels unaware". 🐕 What a gift from a loving Father! 🌼 God Bless you and Patience!

    Pets find there people sometimes and it's hard to understand how they know where they want to be.
