Keeping FAITH, takin' a break & getting back to the basics...

Well, while Belle's eye seems to be a little less-droopy, she has no change in her leg. She is so helpless. I'm trying my best to keep her comfortable, but she won't eat, drink, or use the restroom. I'm not sure if she just has no appetite, or if it's because she can't stand up on her own. :( I need to run some errands before we leave tomorrow (early - we're taking Belle to see my grandpa & another vet), but I can't bear to just leave her here, all alone. I'm hoping we will know more when we take her back in a couple of hours. You know how they say, you don't know what you have until it's gone? Well, it's true. All I would like to do is take her on a walk, so everyone with dogs...TAKE THEM ON A WALK! :) Maybe God is doing this, so I'll appreciate her healthy little legs more when she gets better. He sure does work in mysterious ways. We are keeping faith. :)
Here she is, just yesterday. Happy as a bee.

Today after church, I was supposed to meet up at lunch with all the girls, but that wasn't going to be possible for me. SO, what do they do??? Show up with their lunch to go - including MINE, AND went as far as to buy Belle a new summer outfit, hahaha! It brightened my day so much; what would I do without them????  Give, and you will recieve. :)

I'm excited to get out of town for a week, because we have some fun stuff planned everyday (God-willing, this is all depending on how Belle is)

We plan on going to 2 ranch's to see D's family and hang out with our friend Katie, eat at some of our favorite hometown resturants - they are THE BEST, go for hikes, cook, lots of reading, & spending some quality time together. We both think it's very much needed and important for a healthy relationship. :) On Wednesday, I'm getting a massage and pedi/mani!!! YAY!!! Don opted out of that one, hahaha. I also have 2 good friends that live there, that I plan on catching up with.

I'm going to be taking a break from the internet all together (OK - fine, I WILL be participating in Wishful Wedneday of course!) but that's it. No facebook, no blogging, no e-mail - nada, zero, zilch. I think it will be good for me to enjoy my time with Don, my family, getting Belle back to her feet (also, God - willing) and spending time with the Lord - while taking in some serious mountain air...without the complications of internet life for a week. I'm kind of excited, not going to lie. :D It's nice coming back to the real world feeling rujuvenated and refreshed.

It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed. Deuteronomy 31:8

I will keep updating on Belle, as we find out what's going on.

I will be thinking of you friend. Sometimes a break is good, but I have to say you are one focused lady with the focus where it should be.
