Let Go, Let God and I have my puppy!

Published Mon, Jan 9 2012 1:08 PM

This adoption process has had me stressed out. I had an email Saturday saying I'd have an answer today and had a new picture of the puppy. So I thought if she was bringing him to Arizona I'd better make sure I could get him back home to Ohio on the train since that was the only way I can travel. Oh horrors! Amtrak does not take pets, only service animals. What to do? I simply cannot fly due to risk of blood clots and my legs swelling. When I talked to the foster mom, she said she'd already had him since September and was not willing to keep him till spring. Did that mean I'd have to give up this opportunity? But we're made for each other! I was on the phone this morning with my friend and caregiver in tears. Finally, I said I just have to let go and let God. We finally hung up and I was sobbing. It was 9:00 am and I still hadn't had my shower or taken my meds. No sooner did I get to my room and my cell phone rings.....

MEET THE NEWEST MEMBER OF MY FAMILY!!!!!!!

Indy is an 18 month old Havanese rescued puppy. His foster mom decided that we are such a perfect fit that she will keep him till I come home in March. Turns out she only lives 10 minutes from me. Even tho shes getting so attached to him, she can come visit him frequently. And after talking to my friends and me, we think we are going to become good friends too.  I just had to let go and let God handle the situation. Again, it was a situation I had no control over. Not only do I have a new member to my family, but a new friend too.  Our God is an awsome God.

Well, I'm not getting much sewing done again today. I have my retreat quilt to finish and the RWYS precious projects to work on. I best get started. This is a blessed day indeed! Praise God for all blessings!

May you have a blessed day too!

We often don't want to let go. But, I'm finding that the more I do, the more He can do!!

Cute puppy. I've looked at this breed as an option. They are supposed to be good for those with allergies. Still haven't committed to getting another pet.

Very cute puppy!  Did you get him from a rescue in OH?  My daughter got her Westie from a rescue based in Toledo.  He was only 8 weeks old and rescued from a puppy mill.

I'll bet you're eager to get home and pick him up.
