Thankful Thursday

So many things to be thankful for.  First a package in the mail.

From the Animal Rescue Site (like them on Facebook) which sells some really cute pet items with the sales going to provide food and care for rescued animals.

Mom loved this warm fuzzy blanket which makes a great lightweight bedspread for summer and will also be great in the winter paired with a comforter.  It's also been recently "lab tested" and is guaranteed soft.

On top of Mom's dresser - thankful memories. Mom's brother always got her cute little M and M stuff (started when they were kids) and Dad continues the tradition.  The medal is a fencing medal a friends daughter, the only girl on a college men's fencing (saber) gave Mom as a thank you for supporting her, Mom's brothers porch notepad from his last days before he joined Barkley at the Bridge.  And of course some fun little things Dad gives her to make her smile. All small bits of thankfulness.

Then - ANOTHER package arrived. From City at Cindy's Thread Craft (Custom Embroidered purses, toes and pet products).  Her address is:


to see all the wonderful, custom things she can make for both you and your pet.
What a cute squeeky dog toy -  and so well made and my favorite color!

  I can't read.  Is it for me?

It's the world's biggest Cheeto!

Squeek Squeek Squeek Squeek Squeek Squeek Squeek Squeek  Squeek Squeek Squeek (why is Mom eyeing the bottle of Scotch?)

I LOVE IT!  Thank you Cindy for adding this lovely toy to Marg's Auction.  For this Thankful Thursday we are just blessed to have so many friends who love and give to help animals and each other.  It just warms the heart.

And burgers on Pretzel Buns  help. 

Dad - you didn't bring mine in from the grill?
