Thanksgiving in Arkansas

Today was a beautiful day in Arkansas. As a matter of fact, the weather in AR was in the 70’s today. The weather was just gorgeous! Anyway, my dad’s wife did a lot today to get our dinner done by supper time, and with the hard work that was put into the fixings of the dinner, the food was just fabulous and tasty. The turkey was moist and juicy, the potatoes were good with gravy, the stuffing came from Stove Top stuffing mix but it was tasty just the same, a vegetable side dish, real and real cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie or pumpkin roll. The pumpkin roll was a hit tonight for all of us here – sister, myself, Dad, and Dad’s wife. We have not had any pumpkin pie…LOL Anyway, it was a beautiful dinner!

Regarding Emilee Marie Cuddles Karnopp

Emilee Marie Cuddles Karnopp has been gone / has passed away since Tuesday, November 14, 2006, and she was loved very much. I have fond memories of her as she was with me for 16 1/2 years before she passed away. I had her since she was two months old – a very sickly little kitten for the first month of her life, but I did not give up on her then, and did not want her to miss on her life as many years she could live. When I took Emilee to the vet for the very first time – three days after bringing her home from the animal shelter – I saw potential in Emilee and planned to spend many years with her – which I did not expect 16 1/2 years out of her, though. Emilee’s life expectancy was a surprise to me and to family members who knew I had her and loved her dearly.

Talking about Emilee Marie Cuddles is not hard for me at all. Looking at pictures of my first “daughter” does not bother me, either. I still have sorrow over the loss of Emilee but I do know that God/Jesus was with me the day I put Emilee down to rest, after being sick for a few days, and Jesus is still with me. I know that Jesus is watching over me and has Emilee is his heart because of the fact that Jesus knows I really loved Emilee Marie Cuddles very much.
