Just Say It

Happy New Year December 28, 2009

So, talk amongst yourselves. I have news for you to discuss. It will come as a shock to some and others will just roll their eyes and still others will wonder what I mean by “a shock”.

The kids got a big surprise for Christmas. I had a hard time making the decision and initially decided against it. But, Moms are suckers for their kids’ happiness and addicted to their smiles… so…

Please join together in welcoming our newest family member.
A Star is born!

“Star” is a standard poodle

She was born on December 15th. My mother-in-law’s dog and my sister-in-law’s dog made whoopie and when dogs make whoopie little dogs are born. Did you know that? We all suspected on Thanksgiving that “Mocha” was preggers because her nipples were astronomically huge. She sure was. Her litter was 8 pups. Five survived. “Star” will come home to live with us at the end of February. My kids are overwhelmed with excitement about their dog and that makes me happy.

Happy New Year folks. Why not try this on for a resolution this year…! Why don’t you resolve to do something kind to your fellow human anonymously. No glory for you. Just the pure white satisfaction in your heart that you caused a kindness in someone’s life and nobody knows it was you ‘cept God.

See you soon!

  1. Hey Heidi! Welcome back to blogland. Or is that blog world? Anyway, glad to hear that you are alive and well (I knew you were taking a break). As for the puppy, way to go! But you should have hung out for a Husky or a Samoyed or a Bernard. I know those big dogs love the heat of Florida! 🙂 Right now we are looking at a blanket of snow and temps in the teens. Want to trade? Anyway, it was good to hear from you and look forward to hearing more.

    Hi Bill. I hope your Christmas was merry and bright. 🙂 It is gorgeous here. Just the way I like it. Highs in the 70s, lows in the 50s, sunny most of the time. I don’t care about no white Christmas. I’d rather frolic and play in sand and sun.

    Happy new year! Congrats on the puppy 🙂 Excellent challenge! Anonymous goodness is the best goodness! A secret between me and my maker. Sweet!

    Happy New Year Heidi! Lovely dog!

    I love your idea for a resolution: that bit in Matthew 6 about being secret is a favourite of mine.
