Samantha and Puppydoc–being well aware of how terribly inconsistent they are at blogging–would simply like to make a quick appearance to tell you all that we miss you and that–yes…we are still indeed alive.
Many fluffy hugs to you all!
Samantha & Puppydoc
If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched—
they must be felt with the heart.”
Lately, I’ve been telling an old friend of mine how wonderful the Wordpress community is (at least the little snippet of it that I know). I’m always amazed at how a community of people who have never met, and are so different, can be so kind and supportive of one another. Because of that, I really wanted her to ‘meet’ you guys, since she very recently started blogging and wants to connect with others. Aside from giving her blogging tips, I specifically wanted to connect her with those of you that I already know, because, simply put, you guys really warm my heart (and secretly, I feel that you guys are the coolest bloggers on wordpress!) So that is the purpose of this post.
Dear friends, May I tell you about someone? It’s about one courageous woman who has a beautiful heart who just happens to have a brain tumor. She has undergone surgery and a long bout of chemoradiation, and although she has fought hard and continues…
Come join Samantha and Puppydoc as they take a flying leap into the New Year.
Sending a big serving of cuddly love and fuzzy hugs to you all.
Happy New Year!
I am flawed. Those who have read some of my earlier scribbles have seen the somewhat self-critical lens through which I view myself. Despite this, a new year is just upon us, which, like every new day, offers a chance for us to adjust whatever it is we feel we need to adjust…whether it is our daily habits or our perspective on life.
Therefore, Puppydoc would like to share with you a few things about herself by presenting her three big goals for the New Year:
♥ To LIVE more.
Prioritizing her professional and academic endeavors over the past decade has somewhat come at a price for Puppydoc, who feels that she has missed out on life in general as well as many of the people in it. Therefore, she would like to do things differently this year by more fully treasuring what she already has…her dear family and friends…and by putting them first.
♥ To LAUGH more.
Medicine, while it has given her many precious memories, has formed in her a sort of a somber outlook on life, where all she sees is suffering around her. Coupled with an impression that she is rather powerless to really make a difference, she ends up bearing a lingering guilt for not being able to do more for others. For this, Puppydoc will take a dose of what has traditionally been considered the best medicine–laughter–and just try to loosen up a bit.
♥ To LOVE more.
For most of her life, Puppydoc has guarded her heart closely, almost afraid to feel…experience…embrace that nebulous realm called love. Fearing vulnerability, she has attached herself to the position of caregiver in both her professional and personal life, always caring for others while within remained a daydreaming girl aching to be cared for. But now is the time for her to start taking down the walls surrounding her. And who knows what may happen…
Sending each one of you a warm hug
full of fluffy holiday cheer.
May your weekend be filled with
joyful days and cozy nights.
Samantha & Puppydoc

To that hiatus sweet,
she bids farewell
to rise to her feet
and don her white tail.
