Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone! I am thinking this morning over the whirlwind of the last year and realizing we have so much to be grateful for. The Lord has given us the endurance to keep going through many trying days and circumstances. He is always faithful. When things have not always been ideal we can still give thanks for the endurance He gives us to persevere!
We are especially giving thanks this year for a surprise gift the Lord gave our family just yesterday. We have been trying to adopt a Brittany for a while and have had some possibilities not pan out. This week a stray Brittany was found, and the people who found him wanted him to go to a foster family immediately. So, the man we have been working with, through American Brittany, suggested we foster to adopt him. When we saw his pictures we thought he was beautiful and everything we learned about him sounded like the right fit. We wanted a young dog and he is young. We wanted the liver color, friendly, etc. We first learned about him on Tuesday, and he was delivered to us the next day. It was special receiving him the day before Thanksgiving and we feel grateful.
Buddy is friendly but needs a lot of training. He is doing alright with the sit command but has much to learn. He seems VERY sweet though and has the prettiest silky coat and beautiful ears.
He will be going with us today on our trip to Matt's mom's house for Thanksgiving. We are really excited about this sweet Thanksgiving gift!
We give thanks to the Lord for His blessings, His endurance, and His good gifts to us. Happy Thanksgiving!
