As many of you know, my beloved cat, Fattie, was diagnosed with stomach cancer this year. Unfortunately, we started off the holiday weekend with a trip to the vet and a very unexpected decision. Although his health had improved briefly, he recently took a turn for the worse and I’m just glad he didn’t suffer (too much).
While I truly miss his sweet demeanor, playfulness and near-constant purring, I am thankful that he is now at peace.
Other things I am thankful for this week:
Light …. it sounds simple, but our new house didn’t come with a chandelier in the dining room! Thanks to a truly wonderful housewarming gift from someone fabulous, we can see what we eat!
Food …. we had a low key Thanksgiving, which was great. And the holiday weekend ended with a cold day, which always inspires me to work on my roasting skills. I think this is my best skin to date …
Distractions … my lovely husband treated me to a weekend of relaxing, sewing and shopping. I have been working my way through these …
So while this week really started off terribly, I’m glad I had this particular holiday to keep things in perspective.
What are you thankful for?
