Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #36 and Willie Update
We had a wonderful Christmas time. All the clan was here opening presents after Church Thursday night. The families do their own thing that their own homes on Christmas morning. Ray and I, Jim and his wife, Ahtia, Angie and her daughter, Breauna, and Leah all sang together for the prelude of the Christmas Eve service. We sang "I heard the bells on Christmas day/Dona Nobis Pacem" We had piano accompanying and Leah and Ahtia used some of the bells from our bell choir.....thank you Cindy for letting us use them! I really love singing together with my family. It is such a special time. I wish we would do it more often!! Ray and Jim sang the solo parts for the song. It happened to be a song that the Singing Christmas Tree did in last year's performance. I know we weren't as good as the singing Christmas Tree but I hope that we did justice to the song! I felt that we did......
I pray that all of you had a blessed Christmas.......a time of year to remember the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. May all of you realize the blessing that his birth brings.
Willie update: He is on Prednizone (sp?), and pain meds and also some for loose stool. He actually is acting a little better. He didn't act like he wanted to run away today. Yeah!! Ray said that he didn't yelp as much today too. I hope the meds are helping and getting him back on the road to recovery. He is such a sweet dog, I really hated to see him sick......I also hated having him shut up in the garage to keep him from running away.........three times he peed in the garage even though is was only 4 hours of waiting. He has been drinking soo much water that he pees gallons...... I hope that the meds help in that area too. Thanks guys for your prayers even though he is only a dog and not a human! ;-)
