Wordless Wednesday and Thankful Thursday

I am behind, my laptop was updating last night and I fell asleep. So I am really late. You know I am never wordless and I love the Hump Day memes. Hope it was a good one.Wordless Wednesday
This made me smile for Thankful Thursday. Be grateful in today. Tomorrow is a whole other day. Don't rush it.Thankful Thursday
Feline Friday is fun! I love this kitten, if this kitten had a thumb I think this tiny feline would enjoy the comfort of sucking it's thumb.
Pink Saturday Stop by and say hello to all these fine folks who host these memes each week. This one made me happy in pink because my hubby has the day off Monday for Martin Luther King Day and I am hoping he is better and not coughing so much so we can sleep in and enjoy the day. He has been working so hard and he hasn't felt well since New Year's. I am grateful he saw his Pulmonary doctor and has something to try to quiet that cough. Thanks for thinking of him.
I Like this quote and enjoyed this man's mission. He would be sad today to see how sad our world is and all the division in it. I think instead of pointing fingers at everyone,  we should try more kindness. It's funny how people who want everything to go their way think it is ok to be hateful and bully others and it goes round and round. This man gave his life so all mankind could be treated equal and our world has not done a great job. Anyway I like sharing MLK Jr.  I appreciate my husband's office giving them this holiday off because they work really hard and have so many projects going on. It is a nice break. I hope whether you work or stay home or have other plans, that you enjoy your weekend no matter the number of days you have off or not. Always be grateful for whatever you have.

Tuesday Show and Tail and Other Tuesday

Puppies can make most everyone smile. Today for my memories of Tuesday Show and Tail with Angela here are cute pups in a basket. If you stop by Happy Tuesday you might get a smile or two there.
My hubby Avery has really been fighting with his asthma and this cough that won't go away. His sees his Pulmonary doc tomorrow. Please pray. I found these words from Woman's Day magazine on google. It is tough when one you love so very much is not well. But I started to think of Fanny Crosby. She lived to be 94 years old and although she became blind shortly after her birth she lived a life praising God. She wrote many beautiful hymns and was known for her exceptional teaching and rescue mission work.
In 1873 she wrote my favorite hymn "Blessed Assurance". Although at that time in her life she became bedridden she spent her waking hours praising God and loving Jesus and singing about him
Blessed Assurance
Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine
O what a foretaste of glory divine
Heir of salvation, purchase of God
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood
Perfect submission, all is at rest
I in my Savior am happy and blessed
Watching and waiting, looking above
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love
This is my story, this is my song
Praising my Savior all the day long
This is my story, this is my song
Praising my Savior all the day long
Oh what a Savior, wonderful Jesus
Oh what a Savior, wonderful Jesus
Oh what a Savior, wonderful Jesus
Oh what a Savior, wonderful Jesus
Death could not hold

Fanny wrote this song in 1873. She lived from March 24, 1820 to February 12, 1915. She life was most remarkable.

Aw....Mondays and More

I love this pinterest fine, a baby fox romping in the snow. Our oldest daughter lives up the street and said she saw a fox tonight. Hopefully he was not a coyote as it was getting dark outside. We have to be on high alert with the puppies. Say hi to Aw...Mondays and Sandee and the folks there.
Love is....praying my hubby gets over these coughing jags. He sees his doctor Wednesday at National Jewish. I am grateful. Prayers are welcome for Avery. Thank you.
How was this nearly two and a half years ago? My lil buddy is growing up so quickly.

Pink Saturday

I love this and needed to share it.So please stop Pink Saturday Someday's you have to just have some fun. I don't work anymore, but I still like to get dressed up when I head out to the grocery store or anywhere.  When our children were small we taught them to value nice things. I use to sell Princess House and we taught them to use the hand blown crystal for everyday use. They loved drinking their juice or milk for a fluted stem. Life is short, so don't sell yourself short.

Feline Friday

 Each Thursday Ellen of 15andmeowing and Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs, provide Friendly Fill-in questions.
Ellen came up with the first two questions and Lorianne came up with the last two questions.
Ellen of 15andmoewing lost her precious Prancie on Wednesday. If you haven’t paid your respects please do so by visiting and commenting on Forever Loved on Ellen’s blog.
If you need help, please let Lorianne know.
Here are this weeks questions and my answers :
1. When I’m hungry I am grumpy.
2. I want to  be more kind for setting a good example for my grands.
3. No one knows me better than God and my husband Avery.
4. Happiness is a thought that crosses my mind often.

These kittens appear to be practicing Kung Fu. The airborne one seems to be saying "Kung Fu You!" If you ever get a moment where you want to literally laugh out loud google the Lee Hazlewood song "Kung Fu You". It is from his 1977 album "Movin' On". In case you aren't as old as I am you might not know that Lee Hazlewood was a fantastic songwriter and performer. He wrote many great hits for the daughter of "Ol Blue Eyes" Frank Sinatra, namely Nancy Sinatra. Songs like These Boots Are Made for Walking and Some Velvet Morning or Summer Wine. The Kung Fu Song goes like this:

"You know I saw an ad in the paper, and I just couldn't wait to call.
This ad said you could learn the art of self defense...."

It is a cute silly song but you will get a laugh for sure. Hopefully you can hear it here:  Once you get to you search for Kung Fu You by Lee Hazlewood.

In the meantime stop by Feline Friday Say hello and then go listen to this song.
