We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.
I am so conscious of my treasures, and THANKFUL for all the blessings in my life. Each night before I go to bed, my husband and I thank God for our fortunate circumstances. A great family, we have found each other, love on MySpace! This was back 10 years ago, when Myspace was the social networking website; before Facebook monopolized the ‘staying in touch’ industry. He noticed that we had graduated from the same two schools, and decided to email message me. We got together for coffeie…and thus the love story begins…
The other treasure for which we thank God every night is the other member of our family that sleeps under our roof, our little doggie Chazz. Chazz was a stray dog, who was physically abused when he was younger, and was found on the Virginia/Tennessee borderline. He was taken in by a high-kill shelter, and was on the short list to be put down next. Our little doggie was not as adorable as he is now; when I brought him over to my parent’s house the day after we picked him up even my Mom said that he is the “homeliest dog that [she] had ever seen!” The rescue company that is based out of Charlottesville, Virginia says that he was covered in fleas, and that the medicine to remove the fleas took off all his fur, and he was incredibly malnourished. I’m assuming that he was picked up because he is just the most friendly dog that jumps straight into your arms with his tail wagging like crazy.
I am so very thankful for finding the best family that I could ever imagine. I love you Chazzy! And you too Matt, thank you for choosing me!
