Thankful Thursday

A bit of a set-back but I think we're headed in the right direction (she says VERY cautiously and maybe even a little overly optimistic).

I have so much to be thankful for today. First, the beautiful, bright clear sky and warm sunshine even though it was pretty chilly. And for the reflection I had today on the WONDERFUL day I spent yesterday with my buddies, Cathy and Linda (Cathy was our hostess at her home in Cary where we were treated to a crafters paradise and could make whatever holiday treasure we's mine... A pretty wreath in soft blues and silvers that I will hang on the door from the front hallway into my dining room (and all the materials came from Dollar Tree!).

I am also grateful for God's answered prayer, an unspoken praise if you will. He is good, isn't He? And He truly does not forsake us. He knows my heart and for that I'm grateful as well.

And, I'm most grateful for the care and attention our Crunchie Munchie is receiving at Cole Park Veterinary Hospital. Munch had to undergo a second surgery Tuesday and has been in the hospital ever since. The doctors are being careful with me regarding his prognosis and I appreciate that. I wouldn't want them to give me false hope. In the meantime, I visit Munch every day and am hopefully willing him to get on the mend. It's become exceptionally quiet around here because Munch was the instigator - always getting the dog fired up and causing the other cats to hiss and spit and run like their tails were on fire. Munchie has never been the treasured gem in the jewelery box but that never seemed to bother him!

It was good to see him be a little silly this afternoon...more like my old Munch and for that I'm grateful. He's really one only a mother could love...and I do.

I love the "wreath"!! :) It's beautiful! And I'm so glad you got a day with the girls, that's awesome. How cute is Munchie in his shirt???? I think you need to buy more, and just keep him clothed. :)
