pleasant surprise.

he's been praying for you for a few years now. he specifically has asked for a shih-tzu since he was about 4 and a half. everytime he would make mention of you, i said NO. this year you were #1 on his christmas wishlist. he said if he had a boy dog he'd name it bambam & if he had a girl dog he'd name it pebbles (too much flinstones multi-vitamins i say).

i just laughed and said..."good luck with that...i dont have time or the money to get you that... choose something else...."

i guess God does favor him a bit more than God favors me (the bible says He hears the cry of the fatherless) because i did not even have to buy or adopt you....you came to us on 11.12.09. you walked into our lives suddenly. no one owned you, no one claimed you. you were stinky, your hair was all matted & your right eye looks scary because you have a cataract.... but the first time he saw you, he KNEW he wanted to keep you....we thought you were an old mutt...about to die soon (coz of your eye). we felt bad for you and said we'd take care of you till you died....

that was until i took you to the groomer & the vet.

instead i found out you were probably abused by your previous owner
& something hit your eye that caused you to be blind.

and we found out that you are a young pure-bred shih tzu.


how awesome is that? the exact same thing my son has been praying for, for years now, and you were suddenly given to him....out of nowhere. AND you dont poo or pee in the house (which is GREAT for me...AND i have to exercise everyday to walk you *sigh*).

i really believe you, Mr. BamBam, are God's early Christmas gift to him.... and as long as you stay with us, you will be a constant reminder to my son & i to perservere in prayer & believe God for specific good things, because nothing is impossible for his Daddy. thank you for being paris' boyfriend and coming into our lives. you give us one more reason to celebrate thanksgiving, by giving thanks to the One who is always faithful to answer prayers, the One who gives the secret desires of our heart, the Master in orchestrating the smallest details of our lives.
