Meow! I am one lucky gal....
I don't know how to possibly thank each and every one of you for the pawsome month long birthday celebration. Each of you went way above and beyond to make sure I felt loved and honored as I celebrated my 19th birthday. Mommy sure wishes we could type each of you a message straight from our hearts, but her physical limitations won't allow...so thank you for understanding and accepting us as we are.
What an amazing birthday celebration it was! I was overwhelmed by amazing gifts, cards, rosies, special gifts sent to my house, parties, pmails, snail mail cards....and more. The special gifts and thoughts just keep coming....it is such a beautiful gift to know I am so loved. Wow!! why me....how could I be so lucky to have each of you....you are the best gifts I have received!
Each of you has been there for me without fail...never leaving my side no matter what obstacles life throws my way....you give me strength when I am weak...you give me hope...when there is little....you give me love...when my heart needs a lift...you give me healing wishes when my body is tired....you give me your friendship without conditions...something some incredibly rare and beautiful. I can never thank you for all you give to me.
Although difficult to say and think....we all know why this birthday was even more special than my other ones....because perhaps it will be my last...we never know what life will bring. I do know...I could never feel more loved than this very moment. Thank you for all you give me and all you do to support my special family. We never imagined how many wonderful friendships we would develop & grow on Catster/Dogster....Now...that is a wonderful gift!
I will close this birthday thank you with a poem which touches my heart...

"As I look
Beyond the ripples of my reflections
To examine my inner self;
The ripples begin to fade . . .
As the reflection lays beside me
Grasping my hand,
The inner warmth shields me
And the vision of my reflection appears
I see you. My Friend. "
Our hearts are forever connected by paws.
