hope, like River

River's picture at the Humane Society
Four weeks ago, we adopted a very frightened Australian Shepherd from the Humane Society. 
The workers were unsure how long she had been on the street; 
she had 8 puppies. 
They named her River.
We've been pouring our love into her all month.
She's beginning to see that life can be beautiful.

Out walking yesterday, she reminded me of this saying:
Hope is believing despite the evidence, 
then watching the evidence change.


  1. I love this post. Our dog was part Aussie Shepherd... beautiful creatures. River is stunning. Also, I really enjoy your blog. Don't even remember how I found it, but I always feel encouraged every time I stop by. Blessings, Peyton
