Giving Thanks and Knee Mail Request

Chloe & Gracie Turkey Treats

Sending you a Happy Thanksgiving wishes from our two turkey lovers!

I also have a Knee Mail request. My dear mother-in-law Betty went into the hospital earlier this week from a fall and fractured ribs. She’s having difficulty breathing with the pain. We’re visiting her in the hospital today and our turkey is in the freezer waiting for when we can give thanks when she is home. If you have time for knee mail today, please say a quick prayer for her.

Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving. ♥

    Mary, I am so sorry to hear about your mother in law. I know of two other ladies who have fallen recently and needed surgery. My own mother fell years ago and broke her femur, having surgery on Christmas Eve. God bless Betty and the family who is hurting with her. The turkey will wait. :-)

    Prayers and happy thoughts to you, Betty! I’m especially empathizing as I am at home with a Jones fracture in my right foot! ☺️

  12. November 26, 2015 at 10:32 am

    Awww, Mary…how unfortunate to have her fall & break her ribs! I hope she can be made comfortable soon & will be on of those people who heal rapidly.
    My Ern cracked a rib while getting off a ski lift one year & it hurt him so bad…he kept begging us to stop making him laugh….so no jokes when you visit Betty today.

    Gentle {{{HUGS}}} & *knee-mails* for all

    My brother had back surgery 3 yrs ago, the day before Thanksgiving. My sister-in-law and I spent the day with him at the hospital. Must say the hospital did a good job with Thanksgiving dinner for patients and their families. May your Thanksgiving be as blessed as that one that we all shared together. Prayers for a speedy recovery for your loved one.

    And Thank You Mary for coloring our world with beautiful pictures every day.
