Courage in the Storm

Find the courage in the storm

A friend of mine came to me last week at her wits end. For many years she had a dream of owning her own hair salon. She had been working for various salons over the years and was tired of working for someone else. But she had just come back from a third meeting with a bank and was turned down for a … [Read more...]

Change Your Mind and Just Be Happy

Life Without Limits or Limbs

I was just sitting down to work this morning and ran across an article and video that I just HAD to share with you. The video gives a whole new meaning to inspiration. It's about a remarkable man named Nick Vujicic. He was born with a rare disorder called tetra-amelia syndrome. He has no arms or … [Read more...]

Just Like A Tripawd Pro

Tripawd Pro!

Hopping around, tail-wagging, and smiling---these are some of the things that Pebbles does a lot these days. She is so very amazing to watch. She charges up the hill just outside our house and most of the time she gets up on her own to drink water, eat and go out. Sometimes she needs a bit of … [Read more...]

The Pebbles Principle

Pebbles New Adventure-red-suit 010

Another week has flown by and my sweet little tripawd is getting faster and faster on 3! Below she is modeling what she calls her fancy Tripawd Walking Suit. We ordered it at Tripawds.com to help us help her get up and sometimes walk or balance a bit better. Right after Pebbles surgery (her one … [Read more...]

Smiling and Laughing: Who Needs Four?

Pebbles New Adventure: outside on 3

"Pebbles New Adventure" has shown me how we can learn lessons everywhere--especially from someone who has overcome adversity and adjusted so quickly to a huge life change such as Pebbles has. You might be saying, "Yeah, she's a dog. Animals adapt more quickly than people do." True, but it makes me … [Read more...]

Day 8, 9 10: Just Hoppin’ Along!

Pebbles New Adventure--relaxing after a big day!

At this point, all the days are just running together. But what I am sure of is how Pebbles continually amazes me. Today was a banner day as she got her staples out. She hops in and out of the the vet's office, outside at home to do her business, and is beginning to look like a tripod-pro.  She is … [Read more...]

Day 7: Victory On Three!

Pebbles New Adventure-purple-shirt-sleep

Looks like all of Pebbles resting and healing is beginning to pay off for her--although she is the rested one. For some reason, although she never used to wander around the house and explore or go outside in the middle of the night , she has decided now that being nocturnal is the way to be. But … [Read more...]

Day 4, 5, 6: The Adventure Continues

Pebbles New Adventure-sleping-and-first-stand-walk 004

Any fulfilling personal development camp would not be complete without very little sleep. With that criteria in mind, "Pebbles New Adventure" is one heck of a camp! We average 6 hours of sleep a day--between the two of us (Monty seems to not be fully enrolled in this camp as he seems to be getting a … [Read more...]

Day Three: Determination Wins

Pebbles & her body pillow

Who knew that having a tripod (or also lovingly called a "tripawd" at Tripawds.com ) would be like attending a personal development camp--a VERY  intense personal development camp. Thanks to Pebbs, I am getting real world experience flexing my personal evolution muscles. As our adventure continues … [Read more...]

Day Two: Single-minded Focus Creates Magic

Pebbles New Adventure

So here we are on just Day Two of Pebbles' New Adventure. To me it seems like it has been at least two weeks and at times two months. I can only imagine what it feels like to her! Last night was her first foray outside to "take care of some business". She resisted the need to go as she cried and … [Read more...]
