Challenge #19 Courage

It Takes Courage 

To Live Your Life...


Using the Chickadee image from Sparkle n Sprinkle and sentiment from Lisa D (which you can collect from the blog) on a layered 6"x6" based card.  Added a scalloped edged paper and pearls to finish with a easy accent...

In this month of courage and giving thanks, this sentiment says a lot for me.  I find humbleness as friends are fighting a fight against Cancer and that they have the courage to get up every day, set their mind to live their life with dignity, faith and determination. It reminds oneself to be real and to be conscious of others that they too have their own battles and triumphs.
And in giving thanks for the goodness in our lives, spending time with family and friends.  Hopefully you've had some time for thankful gathering this weekend.

Life Goes On...

It's Thanksgiving weekend in Canada and it's been a beautiful weekend. We hope that you had a great weekend and were able to enjoy some time with family and friends.

Charli is still in recovery from his neutering.  It was more than a standard neuter as he never distended so he ended up having more of a spay type surgery.  He's been quite a suck and has had only two speeds - stop or frenzy fast.  Needless to say getting him to settle down to do his business has been a bit of a challenge and to keep him from licking the incision.   We tried the 'cone of shame' for about 5 minutes and then had thought of another option.  Off to the store to get some baby onsies and small boys underwear.  We cut off the arm sleeves of the onsies, added a tail hole to both garments and viola! Protection for him to not lick. We hope that the remainder of the week goes easier for him as the days go along...

Thought of the day...

Dogs are our link to paradise.  
They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent.  
To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, 
where doing nothing was not boring - it was peace.  ~Milan Kundera


Charli = contentment
