Giving Thanks

Hello to everyone!  Today is always a special day of the year for me.  I know that I am so very blessed and am especially glad to have a day set aside where the whole country pauses to give thanks.  There are many less fortunate today and we need to remember them, and to give help when and where possible.
I am thankful for our loving, caring and merciful God.  He shows me over and over how he cares for me and has all under control.  I am grateful for his correction of my imperfections and molding of me to be a better person.
One of the things I am most thankful for are the people God has put in my life.  My family and my are wonderful !!!!!  If you are someone that I've never actually met but we have a connection, to me you are a friend.  I know there are many who read each other's words, who care when any of us are in trouble or sad or in need.  So to all of you- you are my friends and I am blessed to have you.
I know I'm not an eloquent writer and I suppose I'm feeling mushy at the moment, but I just felt the need to tell you.  I hope you are blessed too.  Blessings always go both directions.    With a warm heart, Rita


  1. How lovely, Rita! And you say you aren't an eloquent writer. We are all blessed to have you as our friend, as well. I'm so happy to be part of the "family." Love from Jill, Tigger, Baby Bolt and "Uncle" Reggie

  2. Yes, Rita, very nice. Wish we could keep in better touch. Will start showing Saphira again when and if she decided to mature. I call her my forever puppy. My beloved Hannah is doing great. I'm very happy to be a part of your dog family and call you a friend. Love, Donna, Travis, Saphira & Hannah

  3. Thank you Rita, we are all lucky to be part of such a wonderful "doggie" family! Love Amy and the Raglan Cardis many:-))

  4. Hi Rita and David,

    We count it a privileged to have you as a new neighbor and look forward to next month when you actually move in.

    Lord Bless

    Love Karen and Brendan

  5. I love the holidays and how it always makes me reflect on my life and what I am so glad to have in it. Many good thoughts for you and yours, Rita...I know you have a stressful month coming up with the move, but I think it will be great to have you up in this area!

    Take care, best wishes.


  6. It's a pleasure to be a member of your doggie family, Rita. I feel as though I know you even
    though we've never met. Cindy sends her love and wants me to let you know that she still adores that green rubber 'shamrock-shape' toy that you packed into her suitcase when she came to me. HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! Lola

  7. Rita what beautiful words and I too love this time of year! I THANK GOD every day for my life and the people he has put in it. Eveyone who crosses my path I feel fortunate to have met! I am sorry that I did not get to see this until today but I hope your THANKSGIVING was wonderful! True freinds are to few and you my FRIEND are a blessing :)

  8. What a pleasant surprise to here from you. That's a beautiful picture of your dog's at the top of this page. I was just thinking about you. I wanted to let you know that Mack is doing fine in spite of the blindness. He can't seem to follow sound but his nose sure still works. He can spot a treat from 50 feet. I started giving him glucosamine tabs and they seem to help. The old boy was getting a little stiff. I hope your move went smooth and you had a good holiday. -Allen

  9. Much Love Rita! :D God Bless you and your family this Holiday season and may your up coming move go smoothly! Alice is still a little terror at the moment with the teething but I love to watch her grow! I'll have some new pictures uploaded for you soon! :D

  10. Thank you Rita for the wonderful sentiment. You are always my friend and gave us the greatest gift we've ever gotten with the gift of Haddie. She is old now, nearly blind, mostly deaf, athritic but she has a great joy for life and has made us smile every day of her life with us.
    Love to you and your family,
    Laura and Dave
