Thanksgiving

Today is Thanksgiving. I think the thing that I am most thankful for is that I still have my Mom. Mom has been through a lot and even though she isn't really the same, I am thankful that she is still here.

Riley and I went to visit her today. We took her a piece of pumpkin pie, which she loved. Riley gets so excited when he goes there. He just loves her. He got lots of attention from a number of nurses and residents. The highlight of my day was just seeing my Mom's face light up when she saw him.

When leaving, like normal, I ran into the long, white, haired woman with the mad, red eyes that was always spewing hateful words. I was amazed to see her melt and turn into the sweetest lady while petting Riley and telling him what a good boy he is. Animals truly do touch your heart. I witnessed that today. Happy Thanksgiving!

You and Riley should volunteer pet therapists! Google "pet therapy" to see what benefits it brings to the infirmed! I'd do it, but Murphy's waaay too crazy. And Sadie's neurotic.
