We got a puppy!!!
We love dogs. We just do. Some people are cat people, others dog people. I don’t really understand you cat peeps-sorry I just don’t!-but we had to make a decision. It was cats or rats. So, we chose cats. And while we have a pet, she is no dog. Yes, she might follow us all around the house or even beg during meal time, but she is still a cat. And cats just don’t hold a place in our hearts the way a dogs do. Oh, except for the other day when I found a huge rat tail and the top of a rat on our doorway-she earned a quite few love points then.
Penelope nuzzled right into my heart from the beginning- the car ride. We had to drive to Port au Prince to get her. A friend of ours, Melissa, is working for a great organization down there, called Heartline. There is actually a link on your right, if you wanna check them out-click on women’s programs to find the part about making purses and jewelry. This particular program is called Haitian Creations-crafting beauty, giving hope. And while we were down there, we grabbed a whole bag of purses and necklaces to sell at our house when we have teams. I’m SO pumped. I’ve already bought a bag and some earrings for myself! I just can’t help it-they are so cute and the proceeds go directly to them and to support that ministry and other ministries that Heartline offers!!! Talk about empowering.
