My precious Oliver...

This is my sweet baby Oliver. He's almost 2 1/2 years old. He's a Havanese. They have a truly interesting history. They were a symbol of wealth in Havana Cuba where they originated. They come from the family of the Bichon Frise. He is the most precious dog in the world. Well, you knew I'd say that, after all, he is my baby and I am a proud Mama.

There are pauses amidst study, and even pauses of seeming idleness, in which a process goes on which may be likened to the digestion of food. In those seasons of repose, the powers are gathering their strength for new efforts; as land which lies fallow recovers itself for tillage.

~ J.W. Alexander

*To all my friends who have sent me wishes to feel better, thank you! I have had a nagging cold/sinus infection for almost a month now and visit my doctor tomorrow. I'll soon be energized and hopefully posting more regularly. I hope to be visiting all of your pages very soon. Ciao for now!

For the beautiful people...

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassions, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.

*Haven't been posting of late, we've had colds, ear infections and things like that here but I'll return soon. Thank you dear Steve E for your concern :)
