Meet our newest family member

The Hubs and I decided that Quincy, our doxie, needed a friend. So we applied with All Texas Dachshund Rescue to adopt another dachshund. We would like to introduce our newest family member, Dack! (Pronounced "Doc.") Short for Dackel, which means "dachshund" in German. We got super creative in the naming department. Anywho, he seems to be fitting in quite well around here! Here is a picture of the car ride home from Brenham:

And here is how we've spent most of Sunday afternoon. Dack, with his scar of unknown origin, asleep on the small quilt (best find ever at Marshall's) and Quincy hoping to catch a glimpse of a bird from the couch.

Here's hoping they'll be best buds!

I was able to get some lengthy, much-needed sister time yesterday, even if it was just on the phone. Sisters do the heart good. G, wish you were closer.

My heart is heavy right now for a close friend and some close family friends. Life brings hurts we don't understand and outcomes that aren't what we would have hoped for. I know we must trust in the Lord with all our heart and not lean on our own understanding, but that's so very hard when I can only imagine the pain they are all in right now. My prayers are lifted up. My arms are outstretched to hug. My words can perhaps bring momentary comfort. Until the hurt and anguish subside, I will share their tears.
