Delilah's Thankful Thursday

I am sitting by my favorite sunflower in the garden and contemplating on all that has taken place this week.

Our friend Chey is finally eating, thank Bast!

Yet we also lost two friends from the CB that cannot be replaced.
The radiant and beautiful Luxor succumbed to his heart disease.
Dear Fat Eric, that delightful ginger cat from the UK went away to the bridge as well.

Sometimes in the face of such challenges it's hard to find the brightness of life. But I will try to be thankful today.

I am thankful that my knee will be repaired.

I am thankful that I have a Mommy and a Daddy who love me and would never hurt me.

I am thankful that they gave me this garden.

I am thankful that I have two Uncles: Tweety and Maxi.

I am thankful that I have a great Auntie Stinkie.

I am thankful that I have a wonderful sissie Iris.

I am thankful that it is finally summer in the Pacific Northwest and I am allowed to be outdoors safely supervised.

I am thankful that I have lost weight and am feeling much friskier.

But most of all, I am thankful for all my friends on the CB and the fact that today is Daddy's birthday and that he is alive and that he will be my Daddy always!

PS: Mommy is going away for two whole days, and we won't be visiting.

I hate it when humans go away. That is not something to be thankful for (but it will be when she comes back!)

You have a nice quiet place to reflect and take a look at all that your are thankful for. After these last couple of days on the CB taking not of the things that one is thankful is an excellent idea.
Sending late birthday wishes to your daddie! Hope he had a good one.
