Peace: Where do you find it?

Peace is the optional theme over at Path of Positivity!  

Now, I realize not everyone finds peace with animals, and especially not a puppy!  Haha  At our house, there is no peace without the chaos of animals running through the house and barn.  

We have a couple of little ones running around:  a Golden, Khloe and a German 
Shepherd, Luther.  I remember when we brought Khloe home, she was such a handful!  We hadn't had a pup in years and we had forgotten how crazy they were!  

There is certainly craziness, yet we find a sort of peace with our pups.  Sometimes, just living in the moment brings peace.  I think that is what dogs do best!  When they are out chasing that ball, they don't worry about dinner or work.  It's all about the joy of the chase.  When Luther lays on the couch with me in the evening, he doesn't worry about what he will do the next day.  He simply enjoys the peace and quiet of the evening.  

During the holiday season, I'm going to look for that special peace that can only be found in the moment!

My card features Lab with Presents from Pattie's Creations.  However, I sort of tried to make this lab look like a Golden with long, messy hair!  Our Golden is red, so I went with more reddish undertones.
