Because it Does the Heart Good to Say Thank You

We're pausing this Memorial Day to remember the people we love and say thank you. Friends, family, teachers, soldiers... some we've known our whole lives. They've touched our hearts and helped shape who we are.  Some remain nameless and anonnymous, having given so much, so selflessly, for this beautiful place we call home.


From Glogirly 

To her Dad,
"Thank you for showing me the good and joy in everything and everyone. And thank you for teaching me the power of optimism. You will always be my hero."
~ Glogirly

To her Mom,
"Thank you for inspiring me to study hard, dream big and love unconditionally. And thank you for showing me how the simplest of things can create the biggest of joys."
~ Glogirly


From Katie
To Gloman,
"Thank you for rescuing me, loving me and truly understanding me. ...and for our private cuddles safe out of Waffles' reach."
~ Katie




From Waffles
To Glogirly,
"Thanks for choosing me to be your special small man. And thank you for letting me get away with just about anything because I'm so cute. And handsome. Definitely handsome."
~ Waffles



From All of us at the Townhouse
To Our Friends & Readers,
"Thank you for smiling, giggling and sharing our lives with us. You mean more to us than you will ever know."
~ Glogirly, Gloman, Katie & Waffles




Another Mother
A story of love. Lost & found.

On this special day of remembrance, we invite you read a true story of love, tenacity and discovery – Glogirly's work-in-progress memoir of her search for where she came from and the courageous young woman who loved her enough to let her go.

  5. Aaaw. that's so nice. We had our version of memorial day on May 4th. :-) A sad, but special day.
    Such beautiful testimonials. And yes Waffles, you're very handsome. ;)
    I already read 'Another Mother' when I first found your blog. I think I read that before I ever read a blogpost. It's beautiful. You wrote it extremely well.
