BIRTHDAY WISHES

By Wednesday, August 2, 2017 46 No tags Permalink

Yesterday was my birthday! Thank you so much for the heartfelt birthday wishes.

Over the years the blog has made us friends…

…yet the Boys made us family!

BIRTHDAY GRATITUDE –

To me, birthdays are moments to celebrate the year that has gone by and to look towards the one ahead with hope and enthusiasm.  It’s a time for me to to reflect on what truly means the most to me, what I am most grateful for…

Blessed beyond measure is beautiful ❤️

      Yes Emma, not only are you like Harley and Bailey is crazy goofy like Jaxson, but your mom and I are similar in many ways! Thanks for the birthday wishes…

    Happy belated birthday to you, Miss Cathy! And what pretty pictures! Where were they taken? I need to work on being “less wordy” for my Wednesday posts. That is a challenge for me, ’cause my paws get to punching those “keys” on the “computer” and it’s hard to slow them down!

      Thank Valentine. The photos were taken in Charleston at Battery Park. It’s quite picturesque at anytime of the year!

    How did I not know this? Shouldn’t Facebook have told me? LOL
    I hope you had a wonderful birthday; it truly is the perfect time to reflect on all that, and those who are, most important to us. ♥

      Don’t beat yourself up – I don’t even think I’ve listed my birthday in the FB profile. LOL Birthday’s (at my age) become so precious because it could have easily not happened. #scary So I treasure each and every one of them,

    Happy Belated Birthday! Now that I have a very senior boy (Wilson is 14+), I try to relish every moment. I can feel our time together shortening, so each minute is
    very precious!

    • Cathy Bennett
      August 2, 2017

      I had no idea Wilson was 14+ – that is outstanding! I marvel at dogs that live beyond the 10 year mark. You’ve done one terrific job – he looks so young! You got to share your per parenting secrets one of these days.
