Thanks giving Postcard

Thanks giving Postcard, originally uploaded by dawnkua.

After thinking about what happened with the caregiver this morning, I dug out this postcard that I got from Food for Thought cafe. I really liked the idea - it's a good reminder for all of us to be thankful for all the people we have in our lives, who help us out or who are there to support us in what we do.

The idea of this postcard was to ask people to take 10 minutes out of their day to write a note to someone you are thankful for.

Here's what I'm suggesting - that we take this suggestion and run with it. Please consider thanking your TC officers if they have been helpful, your fellow caregivers, your family and friends who have been supportive, your colleagues, etc. If you are a TC officer or someone in charge who may come across this, please let caregivers who work with you know that you appreciate their help.

I'm going to begin by thanking all of you who are caregivers out there, who have spent so much time and energy working for the cats. I'd also like to thank all of you who have opened your homes and taken in community cats who needed homes. Thank you for all that you do.

And thanks to you too. You may have left CWS officially, and your catwelfare blog is no longer updated. But it jsut feels like the CWS Director of Operations has simply moved her blog. =) Thank you for continuing to lend a listening ear, and for the supportive i-tete-a-tetes.

Ivan the Terribly Softie would LURRRRVE you if he understood just how important you've been and contuinue to be for him and his fellow tipped-ear kitties.

Calsifer - thanks :) should you be outing Ivan as a softie in a public forum? :) He'll never live it down.

Dawn, you are simply the Best!

Thank YOU too Anonymous - but I was kind of thinking more in terms of letting other people in your life know that you are grateful for them. I wasn't fishing for compliments really :)

Heh, he has only LURVE and food on his mind - what he doesn't know can't hurt him. ;-P
