Thankful Thursday


I've always love this cute little doggie as it aptly reminds me of Happy. That's really Happy at her best, teaching me about love. At a time when I had no faith and trust in love. Ok, of the human kind, to be precise. LOL!

Above all, I'm thankful for God's everlasting love. I am thankful that He sent Happy into my life to teach me about love. At a time when He knew that I would not take any lessons from the humans. Yes, it was that bad. LOL!

I'm thankful for the love and friendship shared by many in their unassuming ways.


I am thankful too for the love and frienship shared by many of you in your unassuming ways. When I've started blogging, I found it really hard and I felt that I didn't belong. Believe me, at times I still feel out of place and different...somehow. But the friendship, kindness and love shown by many of you have made a world of difference. Along the way I discovered that amidst all the differences among us, we share a common bond called love. I am thankful for that.

What are you thankful for? Hope everyone is having a thankful time.

Thankful Thursday is hosted at Grace Alone.


A personal note of thanks:

These come from Denise who has been regularly sending such wonderful and uplifting mails.

Denise, if you are reading this, I would like to know how do you manage to find the time to do it LOL! Ok, seriously, I'm very thankful and truly appreciate your tireless effort and thoughtfulness!

Thank you Denise!

Addie and Lucie sent us and all our friends this lovely email:

"Hello DWB Friends! We wanted to brighten your day and share with you our Valentine's Day card. In the midst of economic difficulties and the loss of our dear fur friends this year, we wanted to share true love that has been found with Addie and Lucie. We hope this card makes you smile and that you have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

Thank you Addie & Lucie!

A beautiful post. If Happy has taught you to love, you should write your story and send it to Chicken Soup for the Soul. They have a call for submissions for a book What I Learned from the Dog.

This is the link to their call for submissions and you can send your submission from their site.

Life With Dogs said...

That's quite a list of things to be thankful for!

Chef said...

It really is a very special, loving bond between humans and us pets. I bet all our parents can think of zillions of times when our love was so much more dependable than the love of other humans.

Happy, I don't know why you would ever feel different or that you don't belong. We love you and LS and it's always a joy to visit your blog. There's no ego here, that's for sure - it's all about faith and kindness and optimism. And we all need that!
