I knew the 4th of July - Lola's birthday (if you missed my post, please do take a moment to read it... while hard to write, it was very cathartic) - was going to be a rough one this year. My emotions ran the gamut, from incredibly sad and heartbroken to just plain angry. There is simply no good reason why my baby girl shouldn't have been here to celebrate her 13th birthday. Cancer sucks. Thank you to all of those who thought of Lola and checked in on us. We are truly blessed to have so many who care(d) so much for my babies.
On that note, we are also quite thankful to have this crazy, beautiful, smart, funny little bundle of joy occupying much of our time these days.
And, of course these two lovable, goofy seniors.
I wanted to send a special shout out to our awesome friends over at Chewy, who always seem to know just when little pick-me-ups are needed. They surprised us late last week with a goodie box for Penny and her humans.
I adore that Sydney wrote the card to Penny... and noted the portrait was for her parents, but the treats and toys were for her. :::smile:::
Of course Penny totally loves her new toys and treats (so much so that the cute little pink elephant is now missing it's tail and half an ear), while her parents absolutely love her portrait! It's beautiful and the detail is just amazing (original photo included so you can see just how amazing).
Thank you so much Chewy Family! You have given us a beautiful start to our own little art gallery collection. They will be cherished for many, many years to come.
What are you thankful for today?
