30 Days of Gratitude – Day 10

Today I’m grateful for not just friendship and getting reacquainted with old friends which I got a chance by going to a party last night with a wonderful lady that used to and still does own the board and care I once lived in, but I also got better acquainted with some people that I’ve been meeting with on Friday’s Weight Watcher meetings out side the meeting and made some friends with those at the party I’d not met before.  All in all it was a fun time!

I’m one that loves to be with people but haven’t been doing a lot of that recently do to a bout of depression which causes me to isolate.

But last night was like my old self again and it was party on like old times.  It was good to see that although it had been a while and today I’ve been enjoying a quiet day at home that the gregarious girl is still  there.

There were a few there that were extra special to me and spending some time outside of our normal environment was wonderful!  To those special ones and they know who they are, life wouldn’t be the same without you!

I believe I was fortunate enough to get to know one person there that I might be able to ad to my special friends.  Time will tell but I am hopeful.  We can never have enough good friends.

30 Days of Gratitude – Day 6

Today I am still grateful for God’s creation but in a more intimate way.  I have a little Chihuahua Schitzu mix.  Other then my Lord and boyfriend she, Tessa is the love of my life and cheers me on a daily basis.

Last December the Lord directed me to her at the shelter and I have been blessed by her calm nature for a Chihuahua and rare barks.  The above photo is when I first got her.

She does love to kiss, which I am attempting to curb.  I don’t care for her tongue in my mouth which happens far too often than it should have.  She loves to cuddle whether it be mommy, daddy or a new friend.

She delights me and it is a blessing from God to watch her each day and her antics and the fun personalities that she shows me.  She loves to play.  One of her favorite games is what daddy calls rabbit.

He uses two fingers as ears that are attacking her.  She absolutely loves playing with her daddy and I love watching them play together.  They are so cute.

She likes to perch on her tower.

I’m so grateful to God that He had the creativity to create dogs they are, other than God and other human’s, man’s best friend or third or second if you don’t know God best friend.  Sorry to be so serious but I believe that even in enjoying God’s creation we must keep our priorities straight.  Even though animals are wonderful we mustn’t let them take the rightful places of God and human companionship.  But even so I would not want to be without the blessing of my dear Tessa of whom I’m so grateful God directed me to.
