A Giving Heart

"Give of yourself as often as you can.
God blessed us all with an abundance of love.
Let it pour out every day."
Mama Hen
Little Chick went to the animal shelter over a month ago to tell them that she would be asking friends and family to donate to the shelter in lieu of any birthday gifts for herself.  When we were there she fell in love with a cat that had been hit by a car the previous weekend. She asked if she could visit this animal every day to give it love. Well, every day she has been going to the shelter to give love to all of the animals. The cat she fell in love with and named Whiskers is sitting on my lap as I write this post. We LOVE this cat! She still has her cast on, but now she gets loving all day and has a cozy home to romp and play. Little Chick gathered many donations to bring to the shelter. Last week she brought them to the shelter and everyone there was very thankful. While we were there she saw three new puppies that had been left at the front door of the shelter in a box with no information on them. She has been visiting these puppies often and the shelter even let Little Chick name them. She named them Dixie, Penelope and Rosie. Dixie has already been adopted out. Yesterday when we went to the mailbox Little Chick had a big envelope addressed to her name. Inside was a beautiful Certificate of Appreciation for her donation. We have framed it and hung it on the wall. Little Chick dreams of rescuing animals and wants to one day have a rescue center for all the animals that need a home.

A Very Special Day

"God blesses us all with special friendships.
It is up to us to nourish them and watch them grow."
~Mama Hen
Today is a day my great bloggy friend, Annette from Mommy Spirit, and I have been planning for four years. We finally were able to meet together and I am so very happy we did. I only wish it had been sooner. Little Lewie and Little Chick had so much fun together. I knew they would. When I began my blog years ago I found Annette's blog and we have enjoyed commenting on one another's posts and watching our children grow as each year has passed. Today was such a special day for me. Annette is amazing! She is warm, kind, full of strength and a phenomenal mommy. It was truly a blessing to finally meet my bloggy friend and adorable Little Lewie. Little Chick talked about her new friend all the way back home.  I am thankful we were finally able to meet and look forward to our next fantastic day out together.

Living Each Day to the Fullest

"Live each day to the fullest and give thanks every night for the opportunity to do so." ~Mama Hen
Little Chick has been so busy this summer hanging out with friends, hiking each week, swimming, going to parties and simply enjoying each and every day! We had fun going back to Old Saybrook to swim and Sleeping Giant to hike. Little Chick has also spent a lot of time at the animal shelter loving the animals. Our favorite thing is snuggling up with our beautiful cat Whiskers.

Wonderful Surprises

"Every day presents an opportunity for a joyous surprise!
Seize each moment and cherish the memories you create." ~Mama Hen
Little Chick and I love surprises! Yesterday I surprised her with a full day of swimming at our favorite Inn in Old Saybrook. She had a blast! She swam in the indoor pool and spent most of the time in the outdoor pool because it was an absolutely gorgeous day. Today we met our friends for a wonderful hike and a day of swimming in the river and lake in Southbury. It has been a beautiful summer!
