Sabra Ciancanelli of Tivoli, New York, says, “Who knew that agreeing to my sons' pleas for a dog would bring such love into our home? Our new furry family member, Soda, came all the way from a shelter in Georgia, and he's teaching me that sometimes we don't realize what's missing in our lives until we find it. Soda is my constant companion, always willing to follow me wherever I go or happy to snuggle beside me on the couch. He's a breathing reminder of the unexpected blessings that come when I let go of misgivings and simply say, ‘Yes!'” Sabra's new book, Thin Places: Touching the Edge of Heaven, is available at ShopGuideposts.org.
