Hoppy Friday!

I have so much to be happy and grateful for this week.

First, I want to share this wonderful gift that Captain made me.

Captain has been making these fun wreaths and made this one especially for me. It even has raspberries on it. I hung it on my door so I can see it when I look up the stairs to Bunnyville. Thank you Captain!

Second, I want to than my sweet Aussie friend, Pauline Loughhead, for making these adorable sock bunnies for me! Precious! Thanks so very much!

Next, I must say that I am truly grateful for Zac at US Airways for realizing bunnies don't normally fly to Japan. Someone hijacked my Raspberry Rabbits business credit card and purchased several airline tickets. Over $3,000 in fraudulent charges. So very scary! Thank you Zac for being so kind and tracking me down to alert me and help me!

I'm happy and grateful that dear friends got good news from doctor appointments. I'm grateful that even though it's been 4 1/2 years since David got a cost of living raise and even though that raise was only .41 cents, he still has a job. So many of my friends cannot find work.

Finally, I am truly grateful and happy that I have medicine and because of you supporting my  business, the money to pay for the medicine for these two little creatures I am blessed to share my life with. Hannah is on another dose of antibiotics and Harrington needed pain meds this week for a blockage. This is something he seems to get twice a year. Bunnies are so fragile. These meds were over $300. I'm grateful that because of you, I can take care of them. Thank you for every purchase you make from my shop and for allowing me to share my creative passion with you.

I'm going to share my theme song again. Just because...I'm happy! :) Dance with me!

So, what are you happy and grateful for this week?

Michelle and the Bunnies

Oh Michelle, there is so much to be grateful for that a long list still wouldn't be sufficient....I am overwhelmed with joy this morning as I read this post.

First of all, the friendships we have, the small gestures, the large gestures of cards, gifts, various signs of care remind me daily of the human connection that is so vital to live, then the connection with nature that is so vital to be a better human being. You were so lucky to be contacted by Zac; what a horrible thing to do to someone, to steal their property! But thank goodness for those keen eyes from others who work closely with these matters, and that they reached you.

Oh our dearest Hannah-Banana Bread and her sidekick, Sir Harrington....they are a huge blessing to you, and to US. You have crafted an environment of love for these very fragile lives, but that love is so strong and will never be forgotten by those who see that a righteous human being has regard for God's creatures. I am again so grateful for YOU, a kind soul who cares so much for others, for me.

Thank you precious friend, for coming to visit me; I know you are extremely busy, but you always find a moment to be kind.

Dear Shell,

So grateful for your sweet friendship and what a lovely week you have had.
The wreath and little bunnies are so cute.
What a terrible thing to have happen with your credit card - and glad that Zac alerted you to this.
I love the Happy song and it keeps going over and over in my mind when I hear it and yes, would so love to dance with you.
Happy weekend dear friend and hope the bunnykins stay healthy and happy.

Your post ALWAYS make me feel grateful. When I feel like life has given me the worse I know far more are worse. I read your post and say to myself...I too, have so much to be grateful for. You, my friend, always special to me! your gifties.

I am most happy to have you as a friend. I am happy to be in the third week of Shingles instead of the first week ... this too shall pass and is only another little hurdle to jump over. Happy today for all the little bunnies around the inside of my house waiting for Easter, and all the Jonquils around my house outside yelling Spring is finally here. Hugs to you from Judy C in NC

Sharon said...

I love your new wreath, Shell.

I was counting my blessings as I read your post and added you to the list. Hope you're coming to VA this spring. There's lots of things to show you at TTGG.
