This story Melt My heart I wanna Share it ! Must read .
Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog’s owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.
I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn’t do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.
As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience.
The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker ‘s family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away.
The little boy seemed to accept Belker’s transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker’s Death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives.
Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, ”I know why.”
Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I’d never heard a more comforting explanation. It has changed the way I try and live.
He said,”People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life — like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?” The Six-year-old continued,
”Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don’t have to stay as long.”
Live simply.
Love generously.
Care deeply.
Speak kindly.
Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure Ecstasy.
Take naps.
Stretch before rising.
Run, romp, and play daily.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
Be loyal.
Never pretend to be something you’re not.
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently.

Easter Egg Treats



Saw this today on Facebook and I wanted to share


Perfect gift idea for the kids or adults! They won't know how you got the eggs in there!
Easter Egg Treats
What you will need
Water balloons (or very small regular balloons)
Craft Glue
Thin cotton yarn
Mini Easter Eggs
1.Add Eggs into the balloon. Then blow the balloon up. Only blow them up part way, until they are the size of an egg. Tie them shut.
2. Mix equal parts of glue and water in a shallow disposable container.
3. Hold a strand of yarn by one end, dip it into the glue mixture, then wrap it around the balloon. Repeat with the other strands, randomly overlapping them and tucking in loose ends, until the balloon is evenly covered.
4.Once the egg is completely dry, carefully poke a hole in the balloon, then pull it away from the string as it deflates. Give it as a gift or use as a decoration.

Hoping to be publishing again by early next week


I am in the process of attempting to get as much off of my computer as I can. Over the last few weeks it has been shutting down and giving me problems. Once I have things transferred to my husbands computer I will be able to publish again. Thanks for understanding and I hope everyone enjoys the weekend.

Barns and Farms












Last week my great aunt Marguerite passed away. She was 102 years old and 5 months. My son Dave and I drove the 7 hour trip to attend the funeral and services on Friday and Saturday. (from Maumee Ohio to Oakridge Tennessee) We only stopped 3 times each way. My son has never been on such a far trip. He took over 400 pictures when we went. He knows how much I love primitive items …..barns….farms etc. So these are a few of the photos he took. I am thinking of having some printed and framed in our new house.

Never follow somebody else's path…..

There is something inherently wonderful


(my kids Jordyn & David)

There is something inherently wonderful about a child's ability to love so easily and completely that even if you have wronged them yesterday a child will forgive you and give you there most precious rock, or there favorite toy, and simply be content.

Need a snack idea for Superbowl Sunday??


This post is thanks to


My Primitive Décor (For Tables)






I found these at a craft store and I use these to add a little country to the empty spots under my tables. I think they are cute and they only cost about $5 each.


Thank you Lord


Thank you Lord

There’s a roof above me,

I have a good place to sleep.

There’s food on my table,

And shoes on my feet.

You gave me your love, Lord,

And a fine family,

I thank you Lord,

For all your blessings on me.

This is thanks to GodVine
