"I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future. The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me. I will not shut out the lessons that they teach." ~ Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol
As I write this, Christmas is just a few days away. Looking back on 2017, I feel very blessed in all aspects of my life and am so very thankful for family, friends, and co-workers and for the blessings of the Lord.
Because I am still busy with Christmas preparations and assume you are also, this will be a brief post. I have some photos and messages to share.
First, here is the win photo taken of Onyx at the show in Belleville, IL, in early December. It seems so long ago now! Onyx needs a 3 point major and 2 singles to finish. That's a goal for the new year.
I received Christmas greetings from some of those who have purchased our puppies and was grateful for their greetings and for the photos they sent.
Diane and Tom wrote: "We’d like to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Kuper is doing well. He enjoys playing in the snow, fetching his ball and practicing what he learned in puppy class. We’ll resume puppy classes after taking a break for the holidays. You were right, his coat is thick! Hoping we can keep up with grooming while it’s growing out. Enjoy the holidays"
Thank you for being a follower of my blog! Again, to quote Dickens' character Tiny Tim: "God bless us, every one!"
"And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."
