We would like to thank everyone for the lovely e-cards as well as snail mail cards we have received for the holidays. We have added your e-cards to our blog sidebar for the enjoyment of all our friends ; please take a moment to look at them, they are all truly unique and lovely. Your snail mail cards are scattered all over the cottage and have brought a wonderful aura of holiday cheer throughout our home . Thank you. If for some reason , (our Mama is dimwitted) , we neglected to send you our e- card , please help yourself to one or both of the cards found below. Our snail mail cards to those who are doing the card exchange, should either be there or be on their way! We are thrilled to be part of such a loving and kind community of fellow pet lovers. Thank you for your continuing friendship throughout the year and for sticking with us through thick and thin!
Speaking of helping us through exacting times, we wanted to show you the angel wings that we put on our Christmas tree this year. Each set of wings (there are six all told) represents a fur kid who is no longer with us physically but who continues to live in our hearts.The cottage angels are : Masala , Allegra , Lewis , Tulip, Leo and Isadora. This year, sweet , Isadora's tiny, new angel wings flutter, flitter, quiver and hover over us that much more poignantly as we are reminded of her absence in our home this Christmas. We know that many of you have in turn lost a member of your family very recently or sometime in 2015 and we wanted to take this opportunity to let you know that we are with you in spirit as you mourn, remember and eventually, let your baby go. May they each rest in peace and may you in turn find peace. May they find our newest Angel Isadora and together may they all dance the dance of the free.
* A big thank you to Ann for making our Christmas cards, our Christmas header and for creating our Christmas Angels Tree badge as a gift to us this Christmas. It helped us move out of our sadness long enough to find the spirit of Christmas again.You are a kind and thoughtful friend Ann whom we very much value. *
Have a Terrific Tuesday.
See you soon.
