Today we will give thanks for the children and grandchildren who fill our lives.
Today we will give thanks for friends near and far.
Today we will be very thankful for the many new friends made during our
years as part of the pet blogging community.
Today we thank each and every one of them for their comments, their emails,
their friendship and their support in difficult times.
Today we give thanks for the home that we live in, for the food on our table,
the warmth of a fire, and two sweet furry kitties who lay beside it.

Today, more than anything I will give thanks for Poppy Vic.
Just this week we celebrated 36 years of marriage.
Just this week, as he reached the half-way point in his difficult chemotherapy
treatments, we learned from test results that his
cancer is fast fading away ~
faster than that imagined kitty above who sat too close to the fire!
It was good news, great news. Today and everyday, I am thankful.
And my wish for each and every one of you is a day that is
full and blessed with all that you need ~ and some of what you want.
