  1. Those sweet birds are so cute and I know they are thankful for their meal. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  2. oh noooooooo
    I'm so sorry to hear you lost zoe... your good girl....I feel the loss with you... when you love someone they never live long enough and the hole in our hearts is so large. It takes a long time to heal over. Please remember to take care of yourself now, find ways to cope with it, and I wonder if her spirit will come back to visit to let you know life goes on when the body gives out. LeeAnna

  3. and we are all thankful for all that Zoe was. Thanks for sharing Zoe all these years!
    Much love and hugs for you.
