Arf?

dog-imagesWill it be today? Will a tail be wagging in our house tonight?

Jonathan and I are heading off soon to the Richmond SPCA to find what we hope will be our Valentine to each other, a four-legged addition to our household.

It has been a long time coming…this business of bringing another loved one into our lives has caused much prayer, discussion, anxiety, and finally, in the past several days, giddy excitement.

Of course, today may not be the day. Our new family member may not be available.

But there is, I think, no going back. It feels like a God thing, growing our family. We’re ready.

We’re showing up and saying ‘Yes!’

Or, perhaps, ‘Arf!’
