We don't have to be doing anything special to make me happy.
and looking up to see that our sweet, old dog has chosen to lay close to our little girl.
Our oldest and youngest children, if you will.
Maybe it's because Sam and I went out of town last weekend without the kids (for our 10th anniversary!) and I missed them so much.
Maybe it's because for so long I wondered if we would ever really have a family and now he have two amazing kids.
Maybe it's because this sweet girl has recently started having pretty bad arthritis and it makes me realize just how old she is and how precious the time we have left with her is (she's about 8 1/2 which is pretty old for a giant breed).
Or the fact that Rufus is in the background of so many of the kids pictures (evidence of his love and faithfulness to them).
Maybe it's because Sarah recently cut some new teeth and is a much happier baby.
One thing is for sure, I'll never take these sweet kids with their precious smiles for granted.
