We have a dog..or shall I say my son, Ben has a black lab that was given to him last Christmas as his BIG Christmas gift from us.  I was hesitant at first about getting another big dog and one that sheds no less...but we did it.  

I’ll have to admit...I’ve fallen in love with Winston.  As of now he is about 9 months old and he weighs 77 pounds.  He is so long and he has the longest tongue I’ve ever seen on a dog.  

He has a mind of his own but is a very quick learner.  He was house broken in a month..and can now do several tricks that he would learn in a matter of minutes.  Sit, lay, roll....shake hands...(both hands)..and now we are working on the going outside to get the paper.  That one will take longer.  

But today...Mr. Winston got a wild hair and proceeded to be just a bad dog.  He ate two screws that belong to a pistol my husband was working on at the time.  Now we wait for the wonderful poop!  No...my husband waits for the big event.  These screws cannot be replaced.  

Then..while I was taking him outside to see if we would retrieve the screws..he decides to take a running jump into his kiddie pool..then jumped back out..ran down the little hill..right into my legs...and knocked them right out from underneath me and down I went.  I landed more on my left side and at the time I had my blackberry in my hand talking to my sister in law.  All I could say was OMG..OMG...“““thug“““.  My blackberry never left my ear...LOL. Winston then proceeds to try to bite my hair and take my sunglasses off my head.  All I could do was laugh.
At first I thought...“boy, I’m not even hurt“...but now...I’m starting to get a little stiff.

Despite all that Winston has done today...we still love him to death!!    

This all got me to thinking about how we live our lives day to day and what God thinks of us.  We make mistakes, say things we shouldn’t, do things we shouldn’t, and just plain screw up...but God still loves us unconditionally..even during our screw ups.  How awesome is that?  

Now let me go find that Advil....again....
