Winslow Homer is patiently waiting for Santa....We have begun to make progress with his diabetes....for two weeks now he has maintained his weight and his blood sugar has dropped from 500 to 298....
The days are passing quickly....every moment is precious....There are Christmas cards to send....presents to wrap.... presents to mail.... baking to accomplish....and loved ones to visit....it is a time for family and home. I'd rather be nestled here at Dog Trot Farm than any other place in the world....I am sure most of you feel the same way about your hearth and home. The lights of the Christmas tree are glowing....candles lit....a wood fire burning....and a pot of cloves and cinnamon boiling on the wood stove....tell me is there anything finer?
WHAT IS CHRISTMAS?
It isn't just a starry night,
Or snowflakes on the ground.
It isn't just a merry hearth
With good friends gathered 'round.
It isn't just a Christmas tree,
Or gifts that play part;
But peace and love
The season brings
To touch the seeking Heart.
~Roxie Lusk Smith~Oh yes....Santa....we could do with a little snow....remember I said a little!
