2. If I am to go on this trip, I need assistance with my dog. I have one friend who might be able to stay with her, but if she is busy, it would be fine if my dog went to stay with someone else for the week or so that I'm gone. She is an indoor dog (as I live in a townhome) and is an escape artist who cannot be kenneled without either getting out or risking her life to do so. I know a few people who may be able to assist but if they aren't available, I need options. This isn't a request for money to put her in a kennel...I learned long ago she doesn't eat in captivity. So...prayers for a solution here!
5. In all seriousness, as I posted the other day, some wonderful friends surprised me by putting together a little vocation fund for me. None of these people have met me in person, and perhaps that's what amazes me the most. They don't live in my diocese, they know me only from my blog and social networking sites. They don't think I'm a Saint, and in fact, they KNOW I am not! And perhaps that's why I'm so surprised and so touched. Because they went to this trouble and because it reveals to me how much people really DO want to help, I am posting the webpage again, and with great thanks to all. http://www.blogger.com/www.frleo.com/adoro
