WAFFLES: You mean like chasing bugs and fetch toys and stuff? And my girlfriends? I'm definitely thankful for the ladies.
What about you, Boss?
KATIE: It's hard to put into words, Waffles. It isn't any one thing. It's lots of little things. Lots of little, wonderful things.
WAFFLES: How little, Boss? Like the bug?
KATIE: Not exactly, Waffles.
Like the sunshine in the morning that warms us and the blue jays that fly by our window.
Like how every time I roll over on the rug, Glogirly will pet me in just the right place.
Like how Glogirly talks to us in her sing-song voice. And how she sometimes even sings to us.
Like how Gloman picked me out of all the shelter kitties and adopted me for his girl.
WAFFLES: And like how Glogirly picked me! You know, when she adopted me!
KATIE: Now you're getting the hang of it, Waffles. Though as Glogirly tells it, you picked her.
We have a warm house to live in with comfy beds, plenty of toys, healthy food, and lots of windows to watch the world through. We live in a home that's filled with laughter and joy. And we have a forever family who loves us with all their hearts.
KATIE: I know.
I love you too, Waffles. But if you EVER tell anyone I said that...
WAFFLES: I know.
GratitudeWe get a little misty-eyed here during the holiday season. Sometimes we get busy and lose sight of how fortunate we are. Thanksgiving is a beautiful reminder of how important it is to never take our blessings for granted.
We especially want to thank YOU for welcoming us into your hearts and inboxes. For laughing with us, singing along with Waffles' silly songs, and sometimes, even getting all teary with us. Thank you for welcoming sweet Ellie into your hearts. Our friends and readers bring us so much joy throughout the year. We just want you to know how thankful we are for you.
We love you with all our hearts. 💕
And, Katie and I love you all with all our hearts too. We eagerly look forward to your visits each week.ReplyDelete
We are thankful for all of you tooReplyDelete
We're a little teary, too. Thanks for reminding us of what's at the heart in Thanksgiving.ReplyDelete
We think about Katie often here at the Warehouse apartment. Without Katie, we wouldn't know Waffles or Glogirly and Gloman. Thank you for sharing this post and helping us continue to feel gratitude in our hearts for so many beautiful things. Hoping everyone at the Mountain House is feeling the warmth of the season!ReplyDelete
Embracing our gratitude helps stave off the negativity of the things that we cannot change.ReplyDelete
Am grateful to have met Glogirly and Waffles a few years ago, and witnessed their beautiful home.
While Eastside Cats doesn't have the same glorious views from the windows, we have room for Sweetie, Manny, and Chili Bruce, and my working remotely is really wonderful.
I am thankful for you all. You give me joy each week. I have much to be thankful for in my life, not least of which are my four cats.ReplyDelete
I'm also thankful for all the wonderful times you shared beautiful Katie with us.😿ReplyDelete
Hi Waffles, Ellie and Glogirly, we don't come around to the blogs very often anymore. Maybe it's too much sometimes to come by. It's hard to see the words and pictures when you're crying. We miss Katie. And we miss Sam too.ReplyDelete
Ditto and Ditto, and Did I say DITTO??! And Amen too!ReplyDelete
We love you all and we are thankful to have you among our friends, yes, you betcha!
I really appreciate your professional approach.These are pieces of very useful information that will be of great use for me in future.ReplyDelete
