Focus on Life - Feel the LOVE

This is week six and Sally gave us the prompt - "Feel the Love"

There are two things in my life that I feel the love from and the first is my grandchildren.  All five give me such joy and I love them more than anything.  My grand daughter stayed with me a couple days ago and she said, "Grandma, I love staying here - it makes me feel good".   So sweet!

 These are my daughter's three beautiful kids when they were smaller but it is a favorite picture of mine.  This is a reminder that sometimes even kisses don't make it better!   But if you look hard you can certainly feel the love.
 Here are my son's two precious little boys and they really do adore each other.
The second thing that I love is my dogs and I have had a few over the years.  Each one was special and at the moment we are looking to get another Boxer.  I think Lucy wants a friend - we had a Boxer before and he was such a wonderful guy.  I am a hopeless dog lover and my ultimate wish is to have a rescue or foster home for dogs that are facing euthanasia because of shelters that can't house them.  This picture is a gentle reminder that dogs love us unconditionally.  

Thanks for stopping by for a visit and continue to feel the love by seeing the links over at Sally's Blog

Oh, such sweet pictures of your grandchildren! I hope you are able to realize your ultimate wish for dogs. My Annie dog is a rescue and I can't imagine life without her.

these photos of the grandkids are so darling! i love the reality of small children shown in them. kisses and love and tears and screaming.
dogs...it took me into my forties to have a dog of my own and now i GET it...i finally understand the love of a dog and dog people and why they are dog people. they have a constant joy that i wish people always possessed.
i hope your dream becomes a reality some day. what a great thing, to save those sweet pups and find them a good home.

Hi Katherine,
Oh my the shots of your grandchildren are so sweet even if the baby was upset you can still see the love his sister has for him. I love the shot of the dog there is just nothing like the unconditional love from a dog or a cat.

Love the photos of your grandchildren. Some my own favorites are of my grand daughter loving up her baby brother. And dogs, well that's my sweet spot too. I have two and they are a constant source of love and affection in my life. It's wonderful that you would think to foster dogs.

What a lovely post. The pictures are absolutely priceless! I feel the same as you do about my grandbabies, two boys who are 3 and 1. They are THE absolute light of my husband's and my world. Never knew it could be so, but it is. Thanks again for sharing the darling pictures.
