Thanksgiving Thursday

"Sending love and smiles at this special time of year!" ~Mama Hen This is the picture I used for my Shutterfly Christmas cards. Trying to get a picture with a dog, a cat and a four year old was quite a trick. We did not have Cookie yet, so next year should prove rather interesting when trying to get a photo with all three animals and Little Chick. This week for Thanksgiving Thursday I am grateful for:
1.) Little Chick and my family.
2.) For little baby animals and the ability to provide a warm, loving home to animals in need.
3.) For heat on these freezing days. Right now my heater is not working and it is starting to get really cold. I will be happy when the heating guy gets it working again. It makes me think about the homeless who are out on the streets in this bitter cold weather.
4.) Love. The ability to love. The ability to receive love. To simply have been given the gift of abundant love all of my life.
5.) The joy of seeing my daughter light up when she opens a present.

  6. you write such beautiful, thoughtful words with each and every post! She is adorable, as always and what a perfect Christmas card pic it is! Hope you two are enjoying this winter weather and staying cuddled up and cozy on the cold nights...here in Texas, we're happy because it's in the 50's...woohooo, not the 80's like it was last week!
