For the love of brothers~

Okay, so maybe this picture isn't what most people had in mind, but these are my boys. Cosmo Kramer (the French Bulldog) and Peter Kieffer my four year old, kiss /hug dispenser, and absolute joy of my life. Cosmo aka Mo and Peter are like brothers. They bug each other daily, (the picture is a fine example of that) yet have so much love for one another. Peter looks for Mo first thing in the morning to give him a kiss and pat on the head. If Peter has gotten hurt and is crying Mo runs to Peter, sits by his side and howls. They don't share a language, but their bond is incredible. A true love for one another. My boys.....

Happy 2012!

Another New Year is upon us! A lot of people start of with resolutions, lose weight, exercise more, run marathons, recycle, volunteer, watch less TV, spend more quality time with friends/family.

 I just want to be. Be happy, healthy, appreciated, understood, loved, and respected. 

Of course, I have wishes and dreams. Sometimes I think with those wishes and dreams come expectations which are closely followed by disappointment. So this year, I'm going to try and remember to "stop and smell the roses" (so to speak) at least once a day. Get rid of clutter/stuff that is weighing me down.  Appreciate what I have and not worry about what I don't have. Live in the moment. Work on my patience. Yeah, it needs work. Sit back and watch my little boy grow. He is getting so big, so quickly. I'm afraid I have missed a lot already, just by being busy with 'stuff.' 

I wish everyone a Happy 2012 and hope you all accomplish whatever it is you set forth to do.
