GOD & DOG -- I AM THANKFUL ...

QUOTE OF THE DAY:

"Keeping your dog close to you at all times is the best gift you can give your dog."





Remember my Uncle Ron, who took Peanut (now known as Peadaddy) when Mommy had to give him up? Well last night he sent Mommy a link that you just got to see. It's "for you other dog lovers" as he said in his e-mail. He sent it to everybody with DROH and since you all either doggies and our humans, hope you like it too.

Yesterday my Uncle Neil brought a bouquet of gladiolus, green and orange, to the office
and gave some to Mommy. She has been very disappointed that our hibiscus are not blooming like they should and NONE of our gladiolus have bloomed at all. When ours do bloom they are purple, yellow, red, orange and a deep red that looks velvet. So Mommy decided last night to get some of her own, even if they are only from the Yahoo. Remember how they have a weekly "Sharing" e-mail at work where they send stuff to inspire you. Well, yesterday, they sent some sayings called "I AM THANKFUL" ........ so here are some gladiolus Mommy picked and things to things to think about.

I AM THANKFUL...........


"FOR THE WIFE WHO SAYS IT'S HOT DOGS TONIGHT,
BECAUSE SHE IS HOME WITH ME, AND NOT OUT WITH SOMEONE ELSE."




"FOR THE HUSBAND WHO IS ON THE SOFA BEING A COUCH POTATO,
BECAUSE HE IS HOME WITH ME AND NOT OUT AT THE BARS. "





"FOR THE TEENAGER WHO IS COMPLAINING ABOUT DOING DISHES,
BECAUSE IT MEANS SHE IS AT HOME, NOT ON THE STREETS."




"FOR THE TAXES I PAY,
BECAUSE IT MEANS I AM EMPLOYED."



"FOR THE MESS TO CLEAN AFTER A PARTY,
BECAUSE IT MEANS I HAVE BEEN SURROUNDED BY FRIENDS."




"FOR THE CLOTHES THAT FIT A LITTLE TOO SNUG,
BECAUSE IT MEANS I HAVE ENOUGH TO EAT."



"FOR THE PARKING SPOT I FIND AT THE FAR END OF THE PARKING LOT,
BECAUSE IT MEANS I AM CAPABLE OF WALKING"




"FOR MY SHADOW THAT WATCHES ME WORK,
BECAUSE IT MEANS I AN OUT IN THE SUNSHINE."




"FOR A LAWN THAT NEEDS MOWING, WINDOWS THAT NEED CLEANING, AND GUTTERS THAT NEED FIXING,
BECAUSE IT MEANS I HAVE A HOME."




"FOR ALL THE COMPLAINING I HEAR ABOUT THE GOVERNMENT,
BECAUSE IT MEANS WE HAVE FREEDOM OF SPEECH."





"FOR MY HUGE HEATING BILL BECAUSE,
IT MEANS I AM WARM."




"FOR THE LADY BEHIND ME IN CHURCH WHO SINGS OFF KEY,
BECAUSE IT MEANS I CAN HEAR."




"FOR THE PILE OF LAUNDRY AND IRONING,
BECAUSE IT MEANS I HAVE CLOTHES TO WEAR".







"FOR WEARINESS AND ACHING MUSCLES AT THE END OF THE DAY,
BECAUSE IT MEANS I HAVE BEEN CAPABLE OF WORKING HARD."




"FOR THE ALARM THAT GOES OFF IN THE EARLY MORNING HOURS,
BECAUSE IT MEANS I AM ALIVE."



"AND I AM THANKFUL FOR THE FRIENDS WE HAVE MADE FAR AND WIDE,
BECAUSE HAVING FRIENDS THAT LOVE YOU IS WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT."
(Mommy made that one up, but we mean it from the bottom of both our hearts.)






For those Mommies who might not know how to get gladiolus to live a long time........
when the bottom flowers start wilting, pluck them off and the bud will start to open. Neat huh!! It pays to have been engaged to a florist 100 years ago.





LIVE WELL, LAUGH OFTEN & LOVE WITH ALL YOUR HEART!!!

Every one of those is a most important thought for us to keep in our hearts when we get all complaining. Thanks for reminding us what is important.
