do you believe in holiday miracles? i just might now, after what happened to nina the pup. she was randomly introduced to a neighbor i'd never met while he was walking his dog. her rescuer and i explained her story to the random stranger, and during a half an hour conversation, nina and the stranger seemed to bond. he took her for a hike over the weekend, then overnight, and fell further in love. he decided nina would be a great addition to his family, but there was a catch, his lease only allowed one dog. he contacted his landlord to find out if he could add nina to the family, and unfortunately, his landlord said no more pets- he was afraid of what might happen.
and that would would be the end of it, if this weren't the story of a miracle- the stranger, sent us this email response to his landlord's fear of "what if":
"Unquestionably, this is the opposite of how I live my life. I don't believe in the fear of 'what if'... period. My response was clear and simple, I gave notice to terminate the lease. Nina has a great new home, unfortunately, just not here (at his current address)."
made me cry, it did. thank goodness for people like nina's new dad! see why i might be a believer in miracles, now? for sure, now i believe in happy endings, as well as new beginnings- congrats to nina and her amazing new family! and a big thank you to john, nina's rescuer for his tireless efforts in finding nina a loving home.
