Christmas Blessings

This post will be shorter than I'd originally hoped, as it's Christmas Eve, and here I am once again, working until the last minute, and flying around the house in a cooking and cleaning frenzy (I know, I know - I'm not alone, hehe)...

I just wanted to pop in and show you our (John's and my) Christmas present to other.

With resources tight, and our hearts still heavy from the loss of our beloved Cheetah, we decided to open our hearts to another bundle of furry love, in need of a home this Christmas. So last week we visited our local Petco, where the wonderful Catworks organization was holding an adoption event.

Meet Lady Guinevere....

Isn't she beautiful??!

She's just 10 weeks old (best estimate) and is soooooooo soft and affectionate. She's also very bold, and we've decided she must be channeling a bit of Cheetah. ;)

Most friends have congratulated us, most family think we're either crazy or irresponsible (two dogs, three cats, lots of fur and and limited resources). But as one dear friend said "you can't put a price on therapy".

With John facing radiation treatments in the near future, and spending time at home recovering, I think this little girl is just what the Dr. ordered.

She needed a home.

We have one to give.

A Christmas blessing for all of us, simple as that.

I'll be back again very soon with more Christmas and solstice tales, and a photo of very special piece, now in progress.

Until then, wishing you and yours all the blessings of this most beautiful season!

Much love,
♥ Carolee

She looks like a bundle of love! I'm glad you could give her a permanent home filled with love. Your friend who said you can't put a price on therapy is very wise. They give us unconditional love, it is the best thing in the world to have, especially in trying times.
I wish you and your family a blessed Christmas, and my your life be filled with miracles and love.

Happy Holidays and many blessing on your compassionate hearts! I have three cats and two dogs with very limited resources, but I wouldn't trade any of my "fur kids". All my little rescues are blessings and make life joyous and exciting! Bless you!

Lady Guinevere certainly brighted my snowed-in week here in Atlanta. I know that she will bring both you and your husband much joy and comfort.
