Saying Goodbye to Daisy



A couple months ago the reality of having 2 babies and 2 active boys really sunk in and Dave and I had to make a very difficult decision (actually I think it was just difficult for me ). The extra demands financially and the responsibility demands of taking care of a dog for the first time became a burden heavier than the desire to keep Daisy.

So, a wonderful family and friends of ours from church came and got Daisy last night to keep her as their own. God really prepared the boys hearts and they did GREAT! I was worried because the many conversations we've had with them concerning Daisy has usually ended in tears. Honestly, I think I was the only one who really felt sad last night. However, I still know we made the right decision for our family.........and like I told the boys, we can go visit her anytime : ) So many transitions and adjustments.......just all part of HIS plan!
* The boys got up this morning and wanted to color.....little did I know they meant they wanted to color themselves!!!
