I’m Back and I’m Grateful(!)

So, after more than a year off from blogging, I’ve decided to take on the challenge of writing down one thing I’m grateful for each day during the month of November as part of 30 Days of Thanks (thank you, Leah, for the idea!). As it’s the month of Thanksgiving (and my niece Autumn’s 6th birthday falls on the actual holiday this year) it seemed appropriate to take on something I know will be both difficult and gratifying.

So for today, I’m going to say that I am grateful for my dog, Feliz. As the namesake for this blog (thank you, Eimear, for the suggestion!) and with her 14th birthday looming near, I was reminded of how deep my love flows for her during the past couple of months as I encountered numerous difficult health issues in her life. Tonight, we went “doggie” trick or treating and it is a memory I will cherish forever. She was dressed as a mermaid and I dressed as a cat (and we looked ridiculous out in public) as we walked the streets of Shirlington…Feliz gobbled down several homemade treats provided by Dogma Bakery while receiving compliments from passersby. Though we didn’t win the costume contest (there were six prizes provided by Fur Get Me Not) the prizes went to some very cute poochies…

So for Day 1 of this challenge: I am grateful for Feliz, my Maltese. The greatest gift I think I have ever received…
