Give Thanks and Don't Wait

Give Thanks for all your blessings.  They are everywhere.  Just take time to look closely and you will see them. 
Don't Wait to tell the people in your life how much they mean to you. 

You may not have another chance. 

The lady who is holding the handsome male puppy in the latest picture is Marie Wiggins.  She and her husband, Cary, own Sheeba, the mother of the litter.  On Tuesday evening I got a distressed call from Cary.  With a weary raspy voice he told me Marie passed away suddenly during the early morning hours of November 22nd.  Cary found Marie on the floor but it was too late.
   

The conversations you hear in the puppy videos are Marie's voice and mine.  I've gotten used to spending my Monday afternoons with Marie and Cary and the puppies.  Marie's heart was always in the right place.  A puppy was always in her lap or clamboring to get there.  I'm still in disbelief that Marie is gone.  God must have needed somebody in Heaven to take care of puppies who wait at the Rainbow Bridge.
Give Thanks and Don't Wait.
