You make me so happy...

Supplies: Papers from Basic Grey "Max & Whiskers;"
sentiment & puppy stamp from Inkadinkado;
Brads from Making Memories;
Palette Noir ink
"You make me so happy I could wag my tail."

Isn't that a great sentiment? Not many things look happier than a dog wagging its tail. Abby occasionally wags hers so hard that she ends up waggling her whole rear & falling over. As you might have guessed, what I am expressing thankfulness for today is my pets.

I think an important element of gratitude is to remember the small things, the little pieces of life that make it worth living. Obviously I'm grateful for the big stuff, but it feels nice to remember how many things come together to be part of my life and give me joy. 


ETA: I've added a "gratitude" label so that you can view all these posts in one section, if you're interested. Make sure you leave me a link if you're in the Gratitude Challenge too - button & link are up in the top right of my sidebar :)

Are you sick of me yet? I love the photos of the fur kids, and I love that sentiment! What a super cute card! I think my cat went over to your house and had her picture taken as Gertie. It's uncanny!

I love your card! That MAx and Whiskers paper is awesome! And your kids are gorgeous! I miss having cats around - my last two both met untimely ends and I haven't had another since. And after the recent chicken episode I'm not sure if it would be a good idea... I'll have to live gratuitously through your trio! :)

A doggy card!! How adorable!

Addison doesn't have a tail to wag so instead she wags her nubbin, but she does do the whole backend thing, too (mostly when "mommmy" comes home).

I'm thankful for my pet, too, as well as bloggers who post pictures of their pets, especially when those pictures include one of their dog looking like she's from the old country.
