Wow!!!! Its already a new week?! Geesh. May is speeding by you guys. Haha
Last week I was planning on reposting all week long. Unfortunately, things went completely different than what I planned.
Which happens in life, right?! 🤷🏾♀️
My coworker asked me to dog sit her 🐕 while she was out of town. I am a TOTAL dog person and animal lover all around!! I didn’t really hesitate at all to say yes!
I figured it would be a piece of cake 🤪
The first night that I dog sat, he was very upset that I came inside the door instead of his beloved doggy parents.
Even though I met him once before, this dog started to growl and raise his teeth at me. Which threw me back completely.
You think may be thinking… growling?
…Almost ready to bite you?
Just kick it!
Let me show you guys how big her dog is! He is up to my waist and taller than me on his hind legs.
When a dog that size is coming at you in such a way… there is no kicking involved. It is time to fight!!!!!
Praying is exactly what I did. Haha 😂😂
I literally stood my ground and declared that no weapon formed against me shall prosper. Telling the dog to obey the authority that I’ve been given as a child of God.
And it worked!!!! 😩🙌🙌🙌
He stopped getting aggressive with me and simply turned his focus on playing instead.
It was a close call you guys!
My hands were shaking but if you know dogs, you cannot show any fear nor can you back down.
If you do, it’s 100x harder to snap them back into a calmer state of mind.
I was 👌🏾 close to throwing in the towel and telling my coworker to find someone else to dog sit for her.
This morning was my last day of dog sitting. A week later …. her dog and I are now good friends. Lol
It’s funny how things work out. I honestly did this out of the goodness of my heart.
Humbling myself and lending a hand to someone that I am honestly not good friends with. Nor are we blood relatives.
I put myself in her shoes and thought “why not?”.
When you do something out of kindness, out of the spirit instead of your flesh… & the pressure suddenly begins harder than you expected… it’s not always so easy to push through.
There was a time where my flesh & the enemy asked me “why are you doing this? You aren’t even getting paid.”
Difficult moments like that are reminders for us to simply pray.
Pray to our Lord and Savior who can instantly change the reality of the situation.
If you have a few more minutes of your time to spare, please check out my poem called “Windows“. It’s a short but lovely poem about waiting.
Have a wonderful Tuesday!! God Blessyou all!!! 🌈
