Sweet Thank You


I try to live by this saying and today especially I have a grateful heart.

Today I received a beautiful drawing of our Cooper that passed a few months ago.  Many of you know of Cooper from my blog postings.  He was a special sweet boy that we loved even if only for just a short time.

I know many of you know Gee from her blog SimplyMeDesignsByGee and know of her talented artist heart and soul.

Gee's talents are in her drawings especially of animals.  Some of her greatest drawings are of horses.

This is one of her drawings.   Gee captures the soulful sad eyes of this horse.  Gee did this drawing after seeing this poor horse neglected and sad.  I agree with her why anyone would abuse or neglect such a beautiful animal is beyond anything comprehendible.   Gee included this one in with her drawing of Cooper.


She capture every wonderful feature of Cooper.  Terry and I had tears looking at this beautiful  drawing of sweet Cooper.  Every detail is beautiful.



Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Gee for this beautiful drawing you gifted us of Cooper.  We miss him so much and we will treasure this beautiful drawing.  I will be framing this beautiful picture and hanging it in our new cottage home.

I am always so touched at the generous and loving hearts out there in blogland.

Cecilia from The B Farm blog sent this beautiful picture she painted of Cooper last year at Christmas.
Another beautiful capture of our sweet boy.

Thank you sweet and talented ladies for these special portraits of Cooper.  I will forever treasure and be grateful for you generous and talented hearts.

I am so blessed to know both of you talented women and adore both of you for these gifted treasures from your talented hearts.

Thank You
xoxo
Kris

  9. Oh Kris, how beautiful both of the pictures are of Cooper. I still think of that sweet boy. He knew that you need him at that point in your lives - he gave you such wonderful love, which you gave back. He knew then what wonderful parents you were to him. Some day you will meet again and he will be waiting for you.

    Have a wonderful rest of the week.

    Hugs,
    Mary

    1. Oh love and hug them daily and enjoy every moment. As they say life is sooooo short when you love so deeply. With Cooper his life was short with us but I am at peace that he really truly loved his life with us. He had a hard life until he came to live with us and I know he wanted to go on forever being happy. Darn cancer. Just glad he was never really sick or suffering until the last days before he died. So even with the worse kind of cancer he still lived out what life he had in a good way. Just miss that big lug of love so much. These gifts that capture him will be treasured. There is such loving hearts out there in blogland and I am blessed to know all of you.
      Happy Summer Evening.
      Kris
