Wednesday Word—Gratitude


This is a Thankful Thursday post on Wednesday. No, Woman, I’m not thankful that you went out yesterday at 11 a.m. and didn’t return until 4:30. I’m not at all thankful that I didn’t get lunch and my dinner was 30 minutes late. Let me tell you what I’m thankful for.

Yesterday TW had her annual Christmas luncheon with Aunt Pauline. Somewhere along the way, they decided to turn it into an all-day affair without notifying The Cat. TW said she had a wonderful time. They exchanged presents over lunch but TW wasn’t allowed to open my present—not unless she wanted to be bit.

After lunch TW wanted to check out the holiday fair in Grand Central Terminal and Aunt Pauline walked along with her. 76 vendors and no cat toys—hard to believe. Both TW and Aunt Pauline were thinking of me though. They looked at über expensive Heart Art where the young woman admired TW’s cat tote and was rewarded with a link to this blog. Of course TW didn’t have any of my business cards. Shame on her.

They stopped at vendor #36 to admire the pretty glass ornaments displayed by The Glass Haus. TW saw the prices and her stomach sank. The Glass Haus had a tree with all cat ornaments so they went in to browse. Aunt Pauline was drawn to one cat ornament in particular while TW was admiring a gray kitty who she said reminded her of ME. Guess what happened then?

While Aunt Pauline was paying for the brown cat ornament TW grabbed the gray one and ran as fast as she could, she told the clerk to wrap up the gray cat ornament too. It was a gift for ME—her Stunning niece! I don’t think anyone has done anything that nice for me since Pop busted me out of the shelter.

Thank you Aunt Pauline for the beautiful ornament. You are wonderful for thinking of me. Also concats on your book making Amazon’s Best Seller List. You ROCK!

Is that ME? She’s got my eyes.
PS: I don’t think TW would have gotten far. She’s not as fast as me not to mention, her heart would have attacked her after the first five steps. Now I could have pulled that heist off. Who’s with me?

Your Aunt Pauline is a true gem!! That ornament is gorgeous and I know you will cherish it forever! So happy she did that! I was at the Grand Central Holiday shopping event last year and OMG it is to die for!!!! Did you eat at Juniors? The prices on many things are high there as you said. But the vendors were all soooo nice! Last year they had a number of dog items but no cat :(
