Brave and Strong

Promise me you'll always remember:
You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
 ~ AA Milne

Nell was literally dragged into the Roanoke Pound by her former owner. She was on her belly as he pulled her into the building and signed her over to a kill shelter. She was the third dog this person dragged into the pound and left.

Fortunately, she had a very special person, Libby, looking out for her. Nell was transferred to Angels of Assisi, and went to the Best Beagle Foster Home in the world yesterday, And guess what? She has an application for adoption already!

There are indeed people in this world who can drag you into scary, loud, and dangerous places. Thankfully, there are others who can also make you feel braver, stronger, and smarter that you ever realized you were. Those who give you a quiet place to be still and let the healing begin. Those who gently guide you out of the danger zone, and keep you safe. We are thankful for these special friends every day, and hold them tight in our hearts. Thank you.
