Thankful Thursday

Every day we give thanks for all that we have been blessed with in our life. But Thursday is a good day to single out some special reasons.

Misty - you've got MAIL!!!

And not just any old mail, but ROYAL mail!!!  AND from royalty in the furs - Princess Leah the Cavalier.

 Look, Mom, Leah sent me my own flutterbye!!!
Isn't it so pretty?

And if you bigify the inside of the card, you can read the beautiful welcoming message from Princess Leah and her sweet Mum.

Sealed with a pawprint of the Princess - thank you so much, Leah - such a sweet gesture.

But wait, then we ALL got more mail. Angel Greta and her Mom sent us one of Angel Greta's special pins to commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Yes, that month was October and this is now November, but October was not such a good month here.  We are so grateful to Angel Greta and her Mom for sending us one of these amazing pins.

EVERY day of the year should be a day for all peeps to be aware of the dangers of breast cancer and be willing to do all they can to support the cause of awareness and finding a cure.

Mom has placed our pin on her purse/handbag/pocketbook (that is for Madi's Mom:) so she will never forget how important this issue is.  Many thanks to Angel Greta for giving us a great way to spread the word.

Misty also has more reason to be thankful today too. She is very thankful for finding such a great big brother as she did with Lightning.

Mom says he is just so incredibly patient with Misty.  She is never very far from him.  And when he decides to pick a toy or a bone to gnaw on, of course, that is just what she is wanting too.

Misty is very good at turning on the cutesy factor:) as she tries to get his attention.

Doing her darndest to distract him.

Finally, an opportunity presents itself.
Who will get the prize???

You guessed it - Lightning always gives in to his new best pal.

This is one of two heavily used/chewed dinosaur bones that were Ciara's favorite chew toys.

"I sure do miss that sweet Ciara.  But I believe she had a paw in finding Misty for me.  As much of a pest as she can be, I am vrey thankful I have her here with me."

"And Mom helped me find the other dinosaur bone:)."

"That should keep her busy for a while."

We hope you all find reasons to be thankful today too.

Woos - Lightning and Misty

Mom said I should be thankful for how patient Cammie STILL is with me. I don't have any idea what she means by that!
Yours sincerely,

That was so nice of Princess Leah to send you such nice mail. We are just so thankful that you are keeping Lightning company while he is grieving Ciara. Misty you are the best and so glad that Lightning is so patient with you. And that is one great pin for Breast Cancer that Angel Greta sent to you. It is an important thing to remember.
