As Christmas approaches, and we are filled with the awe of our Saviors birth, I am amazed at the power of love. I believe love is the most powerful force on earth, and with out it, we as humans can not survive. We are very busy here, with three litters. You might wonder how in the world we can care for so many children and puppies….I wonder myself sometimes! The truth is, our children are such a tremendous help to us. This week Christie, our oldest daughter, came home with Samuel and baked for two days straight. We wanted to make baskets up of Christmas goodies to give to our neighbors. Believe it or not, we have lived on this farm since 1998 and do not know some of our neighbor’s names! Today Russ & I and the three youngest kids drove around to the neighbors, introducing ourselves and giving the goodies. I couldn’t have done it without Christie, and this morning as I held Samuel with one of the puppies, I felt like the luckiest person on earth. Something about his innocent eyes, and the softness of the puppy….reminded me of how much I have to be thankful for, and how I am loved. I have the best job in the world, and a family that works together toward a common goal of producing happy, healthy puppies. It doesn’t get any better!! Merry Christmas!
