A Lot To Be Thankful For

I hope everyone has been able to enjoy some time with their family and friends today. When I did my post about my adoption story, it got me to thinking about all the things I have to be thankful for.....

I'm most thankful for treats!
I'm thankful for the ability to play with my toys, whenever I decide to.
I'm thankful for my Grandma who loves me very much.
I'm thankful for all the silly photos Mom takes of me (sorta).
I'm thankful for clothes to keep me warm since I don't have much fur. (No offense to my feline furiends!)
I'm thankful for blankets left on the couch for me to cuddle up and take a nap in.
I'm thankful for the sunshine that comes through the windows even when it is cold outside.
I'm thankful for living long enough to have all these gray hairs in my beard.
I'm thankful Scooter found a home of his own.
I'm thankful for the ability to go on walks even when I have to wait for the person walking me.
I'm thankful for being able to relax in the sun.
I'm thankful that I get to sleep in the big bed.
I'm thankful for my daddy because he loves me very much.
I'm thankful for my momma because she loves me very much.
I'm thankful that my momma and daddy love each other very much and I get to be a part of their family.
And I'm very thankful for all my blogging furiends who love and support me no matter how silly I am!
Note from Mom: Twix may have given TMI about her grandma but she is very concerned about her. Grandma is doing better than she was a week or so ago. Apparently, this is a possible complication for having major abdominal surgery. The doctors say her bowels will start working eventually but until then, she is unable to keep much food down because it doesn't have anywhere to go. I know Twix has told you thanks for your support and prayers but I want you guys to know it means a lot to us to know you are there.
Thank You!

Hi Twix, what a beautiful post although we realise we have to go back and read your adoption story!!! How did we miss that.
We just loved your pics - in particular your 'I hate cats' hoodie - that made us laugh and we guess it would have made our cat pals laugh too.
Your mom and dad looked so beautiful when they got married.
We are glad you are having such a loved and happy life - not bad for a balding dachshund!!!
We continue to keep your Grandma in our thoughts - we know this is not an easy time but it will pass.
We are thankful you are our pal.
love and kisses
