the prodigal dog returns home
One of the Bible's most joyous stories is the parable of the prodigal son. A son, who was considered lost, returns home to his father's open arms.
I am happy to report that there is the same joy in Guaymas tonight. Sitka has returned to Cynthia and Mike. You can read the details on their blog. I will not take away their pleasure of sharing the story.
But I cannot let this moment pass without once again pointing out that my faith in humanity is restored every day when I read the blogs listed in the right-hand column.
We have shared stories of our pets; our loss and acquisition of jobs; our children and grandchildren; our social foibles; our accomplishments; our health issues -- and, in one instance this year, a death. But we are always there as friends and supporters.
Welcome home, Sitka. You are a great symbol of the joy we share with each other.
