happy thanksgiving

How did it get to be October?

September was just a blur. It was probably the hardest time I've experienced in a long while. But, there are also many things to be thankful for. In no particular order...

I'm thankful for Starbuck. He is truly our miracle dog. The doctor who saw him at emergency only gave him a few days or few weeks after the 1st scare. Way to prove them wrong SB! SB's health has been up and down but he is doing good. And I'm so thankful for everyday that he is with us.

When you have a scare like this you realize how precious life truly is. Anything can happen at any moment and you just have to live life with as little regret as possible.

I'm thankful for ZuZu who is really our little angel. Always giving us such joy and love. She is so attentive and always making us laugh. I'm thankful she is healthy and happy.

I'm thankful for my family. They are always there 100% to support me and D. My mom and dad go to church every week and they always pray and light a candle for us and esp. for SB to get better. My mom told me the other day that even her friends are worried about us. She goes out for coffee (gossip time) with her friends each week and they always ask if he's ok and what his status is. Its nice to know that people do care and that our doggies are accepted as part of our family vs just being considered pets. My sis and her hubby are also always checking in and always there to just listen or offer support.

The same goes for my wonderful friends who are also so supportive and understanding. Its nice to have friends who know what I'm going through and offer support via emails, msn and fb as they know I'm not a phone person :)

I'm thankful for my nephew who is so happy and healthy. He started school this year and he is doing so well. My mom says everyone at school knows him as when she goes to pick him up, everyone is always saying hi to him from the different teachers to the kids in the school no matter what grade they are in. Must be the family charm ;)

I'm thankful in general for having such a great life. A husband who is my soul mate, a good job, a good home and being able to live a comfortable life. There are so many people out there struggling to make it and I'm thankful for everything we have.
