We Give Thanks

TRUFFLES: ♫ Turkey, turkey, turkey. Turkey, turkey, turkey. ♫

MELISSA: Truffles! Come here, sweetie. What's all the commotion for?

TRUFFLES: Mommy! Grandpa's in the kitchen getting the turkey ready for Thanksgiving dinner. It's gonna be soooo good. I can hardly wait!

MELISSA: Come sit on my lap for a minute. I want to talk to you.

TRUFFLES: (bounces up) What's up, Mommy?

MELISSA: Turkey sure is a special part of Thanksgiving, I agree. But the real meaning of the holiday is to think about our blessings and all the things we're thankful for.

TRUFFLES: What are you thankful for, Mommy?

MELISSA: Oh, so many things. A wonderful home and family, especially the best parents a girl could ask for. My health, a job I enjoy, our blogging family. I'm thankful for the years I had with Tara even though it wasn't nearly long enough. Oh, and a certain little tortie that's in my life now that puts a smile on my face every single day. (kisses Truffles)

TRUFFLES: Oh Mommy, I love you too. (Purr...) A few months ago I was homeless and now I have so much - yummy food and treats, warm beds, toys, and most of all a Mommy who loves me so, so much.

MELISSA: I guess we're pretty lucky we found each other, aren't we?

TRUFFLES: You know what I'd like to do after dinner, Mommy?

MELISSA: Take an extra long catnap?

TRUFFLES: No, I'd like to take a big bowl of extra turkey to all the kitties and doggies in the shelter that are still waiting for their forever home.

MELISSA: I think that's the best idea I've heard in a long time. Why don't we go out to the kitchen and see what we can do to help out?

TRUFFLES: ♫ Turkey, turkey, turkey. Turkey, turkey, turkey.
