Giving Thanks


As we celebrate Thanksgiving, I was pondering what I have to be thankful for.

Losing my grandmother recently has been an awakening for me. The days aren't as bright and the nights are sadly quiet. Yes it is different, and I feel empty inside, but there is still so much to be thankful for. I am so very thankful that I had this special woman in my life for almost 50 years. Thankful to be surrounded by supportive and loving friends & family that have always been there through good and bad times. Thankful for a loving and caring husband. Thankful to cuddle my little Vito every day. Good health, a job I love, a comfortable home. That's a lot to be thankful for.

Wishing all of you in the States and beyond a very Happy Thanksgiving. May you have a beautiful day surrounded by the ones you love. And I thank you for being ever-so-supportive and encouraging.

I'm so sorry for your loss, Lynn. I bet your grandmother gave you your appreciation for all the wonderful things you collect and admire.
So I thank her for that. I know you're sad cause she's gone, but she's not far away and you will see her again one day!

Happy Thanksgiving, Lynn. I know you miss your sweet Grandma, I miss my dad too but how lucky were we to have such splendid people in our lives?! There's honestly not one day that goes by without my thinking of him and his kind words. Take care and remember your Grandma is still living in your heart each and every day!
Love to Vito from Zeke too, I believe he's a Bichon? From one French pooch to another this thankful holiday.
