Acts of Kindness

 Hi Y'all ! 
This is a "Ranch Patrol" post of sorts. 
Lots of things have been happening with them.
 As you can see, the Ranch Nuisance had her 2nd litter of puppies. This time she had all black and white babies....5 girls and 1 boy. She is such a good Mama. That many is hard on her and selling the puppies is hard on me....so this is the last litter. I will have her spayed after her milk dries up. 
The "Ranch Foreman" has already undergone his part of my plan......He was neutered last week....
which brings me to the heart wall hanging.

 There is a vet tech at the clinic who knows my dogs by name and asks about them when you see her at the grocery store....etc. I took the Ranch Foreman in for his procedure, and had to leave him there for the day. This lady, (Crystal) just makes you feel at ease and is so sweet and kind to the animals. 
The Lord put it on my heart that morning, that Crystal needed a "pick-me-up". So after I got home, I spent the day making her the wall hanging. 
The background fabric is Art Gallery Indian Summer Menagerie by Sarah Watson. I thought it was perfect and represented the spirits of all the little animals Crystal has been so kind to. 
The deer in the heart comes from Utopia Dreamlandia by Frances Newcombe.... the arrow represents how it must hurt her heart when an animal is so sick or has to be put down.
 The purple fabric is a Cotton and Steele ....I think, I'm just not sure.
Anyhow, when I went to pick up my Ranch Foreman that evening, I told Crystal that the Lord put it on my heart to make this, that she needed a little pick-me-up. 
She said it had been a hard day for her because her Mom had her first chemo treatment that day and she was feeling down because she couldn't be with her. 

Thank you Crystal, for For Your Acts of Kindness to our beloved animals. 
May the gracious and loving God in heaven bless you this day.

Good morning Vickie, such a sweet wall hanging. I commend you and how quickly you responded to God's direction. Sometimes I'm a little slow on the draw. And that is a shame on me moment. She need that caring moment that day not next week. You have inspired to listen closer and act quicker. thank you.
Merry Christmas

A very special gift for a special lady. We are similarly blessed with our lovely vet, Holly.
I enjoyed the news about the dogs. I know how hard it must be to find homes for those sweet puppies.

God knows what we should do, and when, if we'll just listen and obey. You listened and obeyed, and it was a good thing.
