Gratitude List

Day 5: I'm grateful for who ever invented Nacho Cheese Dip and chips today. it makes a great lunch!
Day 6: I'm grateful that I live in a country where I have the right to vote, to make my voice heard. Where I can determine the future by the choices I make in a little booth today. I'm privileged to be a part of the process. So grateful for...
the Constitution of the USA and in awe of the founding fathers who realized the importance of gauranteeing those freedoms for my generation. They were truly inspired by the Lord. God Bless America!!!
Day 9: I'm grateful for light and heat when so many are still without power on the east coast. I'm thankful for the moisture that has come and gives me the excuse to hibernate in the house without feeling guilty.

Day 10: I'm thankful for the young men who shoveled my driveway for me so I could get out to the grocery store today. I tried last night to clear some of it away and slipped and fell. I'm also very thankful to whomever invented heating pads BenGay

Thankful Sunday

I'm so very grateful for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the peace it brings to me in this chaotic world. Sometimes I think that I can never get quiet. Then I pray and the quiet comes. Then as the songs say "It is well with my soul" and "Sweet is the peace the Gospel brings." There is something so nice about Sundays. I'm so glad the Lord gave us this day to rest.

Attitude of Gratitude

Thankfulness. I read the other day that Oprah has kept a Gratitude journal for 22 years. My friend Janalee adds what she is thankful for after every one of her blog posts. So for this month I plan on posting everyday something I'm grateful for.

A few minutes ago I just got back from a walk round the block with Crickett. It's the first time she's been on a leash ever. She's is so funny. Very scared and clingy. Not adventurous like Lucy was at all. The Bancroft girls were out on their tramp and she wanted to go and play with them rather than explore. We'll keep working on it.

So today I'm thankful for the nice calm weather when let me get out and about.
I'm also thankful for candy. I have a lot left. Not so many Trick or Treaters came by before I left.

My New Friend

This is Miss Crickett CuddleBug! She's the new baby in my life. She's just 2 months old and I've had her for a week. She is 3/4 Maltese and 1/4 ShihTze. I got her from a breeder here in Magna with a little help from my neighbours the Grays and classifieds

She's very very smart! She totally gets what the potty pads are for and except for a few accidents close by it has been pretty easy to get her to go on it. She loves to give kisses and snuggle. I built a set of steps out of boxes so she could climb to the couch and she only had to be shown what to do twice before she was up and down them like a pro.

She sort of gets the crate training but doesn't like it inside as much as she likes sleeping on top of it! She figured that out all on her own. She misses her siblings like mad and sleeps burrowed under pillows and her blankey. Crickett knows her name.

Sunday she met RomBerg and scared him just like Miss Lucy did. Seeing Blane's big huge dog cowering from 34oz of fluffy puppy is a total riot! She jumped up and tried to bite his tail and he whined and whined. He shouldn't have dangled it in front of her. Then she barked and charged at him on and he jumped back a couple of steps. LOL

My Little Hero!!

My sweet LucyBelle saved my life last week. I passed out and came to with a face full of doggy slobber, her on my chest yipping and barking at me in what can only be described as some mutant version of canine to human CPR.
As I a little more alert she was jumping on me then going and scratching at the fridge. She knew I needed juice! Next thing I knew there were a lot of people in my house saying we had to in get to the ER! Now! Sarah swears I called her but I don't remember doing it at all. I think Lucy dialed the phone and impersonated me.
While I was getting the help I needed at the Hospital. She got to go play with the kids at Aunt Carla's..... her version of little dog heaven. It only took a second, she spotted an open door and was off to freedom and adventure out into the road. A passing car and she was gone.
My little furbaby, my sweetie, my buddy, my friend. Goodbye Lucy my love .....I will miss you every single day for the rest of my life.

RIP Lucy Belle Pupper Dog, 13 June 2008~14 September 2012 under Aunt Carla's rosebushes.

Memorial Day 2012

Lucy and I went to the cemetery today. It looked so pretty with all the flowers and decorations on the graves. This is the first time I've gone on Memorial Day and there hasn't been cans of Pepsi there. I was sort of disappointed. I was getting used to the one full and the one empty.
