Wishing You All a Wonderful 2007!

This has not been a good year for our family, but we are optimistic and looking toward 2007 with hope.

This is Rembrandt, our dog who has defied all odds. We got him over a neurological problem earlier this year, only to find out a while ago, that he only has weeks left with us. He's home with us and we're giving him the best palliative care we can.

I only bring this up to say, he still wakes up every morning wagging his tail, delighted to see us and start another day. Pets teach us I think. They deal with what occurs, when it occurs and do not anticipate the worst. They show us what it is to live in the now and find joy in that.

My wish for all of you is that you find joy this year. We all have reasons to be optimistic and I hope you will join me in finding them.

Happy New Year!

Dear Arts and Minds,

We here at the Alter Boys want to wish all the best to Rembrandt. It is always sad to see a brother go, but at least he's spending his last days or weeks at home, with his caring human partners.

You will better understand this word if you check out our mugs on our blog.

Take care,
