“And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the
snow rain, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so?
It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled ’till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.” ~ Dr. Seuss
It has been pounding rain again. There will be no gardening this weekend, unless you count water features.
And few Goldens in the garden, because everyone is too focused on getting them walked and warm again. But that does not mean we are without Christmas cheer. Remember the story of Hunter and his transformation? (You can revisit it here.)
Part of Hunter’s pained look when he first arrived at Homeward Bound was very real pain in his ears.
Thankfully, he received the care he desperately needed. Unfortunately, the result was deafness. Sad as that is, it was an obvious relief to Hunter after the hurt he had endured for so long. You can see it on his smiling face and in his rebounded spirit.
So, after such a long recovery and wait for adoption, where’s the cheer? Hunter went home this week – in time for Christmas.
So you see? Even in the rain and cold and wind, we are surrounded with blessings and cheer.
What miracles have walked through here.
Best wishes for a joyous holiday and a new year filled with small miracles – to all our visitors and readers from the gardeners and the pups of Homeward Bound.
