A Heartwarming Tail

Leave it to Lauren to send me something so overwhelmingly sweet, that the only way to purge yourself is to cry. I mean, thanks.

A mother with a ten year old son and a 21 year old son, the elder with debilitating Down Syndrome, found a tan stray terrier, she allowed herself to keep it until his owner was found. He became a part of the family, saved the older son's life, and enabled his original owner to make a decision that most are never faced with, and even fewer would be strong enough to do.

The gift of love is so rarely public, that it winds up sounding cliche. But it's so necessary to surviving day to day life. If anyone ever finds one of my dogs stray, just know a quiet night is about the biggest miracle you can expect...
