Thankful Thursday


Hi everyone. We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

I am thankful to everyone for sharing in my grief on the loss of Joanie. I appreciate all your kind words.

I am thankful that Joanie and the great one were friends for years. I hope she will remember Joanie. I have many photos to keep her in mind. This is one from 2019, they had matching mermaid costumes.

I skipped the poetry today.

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and my co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

1. I hope my Easter basket has __________ in it.
2. March has been ____________________.
3. If there ever was a time to _________, it’s now.
4. I _________ in preparation for _________.



  1. I’m sure The Great One will always and forever treasure her special relationship with Joanie – all of us will treasure knowing her and we know you are happy that you have a lot of photo-memories with Joanie too. She was such a sweet and patient girl.

    Hugs, Pam

  2. There is no doubt that you have created loving nieces who really enjoy being around cats. They will not forget. And neither will you.

    1. Thank you. And thank you for the package you sent- I hope you got my email> XO

  3. What a sweet photo. I am sure sweet Angel Joanie will be remembered by The Great One, and all of us too.

  4. Joanie was, just as Teddy’s mom said, a sweet and patient girl. I loved seeing her on exam days with the girls,too! 🙂

  5. I still fondly remember our next-door neighbor’s cats, and that was decades ago.
    So, I’m sure The Great One will have a storehouse of Angel Joanie memories with her always.

  6. Cute photo. The Great One will have many happy memories of her play times with Joanie.

  7. Charlee: “We’re sure The Great One will remember Angel Joanie! Our Dada says he remembers lots of animals from when he was small, like his friend Molly down the street, a little beagle pupp … Hey, wait, Dada, that’s a dog!”
    Lulu: “A dog, you say? Hmmm …”

  8. Precious PHOTOS Ellen your Great nieces have the love of animals running in all their DNAs
    I know TGO will remember the fun she and Joanie had.
    Hugs Cecilia

  9. We think there is no chance Joanie will be forgotten. Too many good times to hold onto.

  10. I’m so sorry for your loss of Joanie, Ellen. I hope that your precious photos and memories will help you through this awful time. ♥

  11. Joanie will be missed ~ adorable photo of her and the ‘Great one’ too ~ hugs,
