{THIS MOMENT} SEE BEAUTIFUL

The purpose of the blog hop 

is to remind us to stop and see beautiful all around you each and every day.
To quote Sugar, 
The PAWsome part of today's blog hop is, for every participant of our blog hop, we will be donating $1. (up to at least $100). to 
St. Anne’s Center Lantern House a continuing 
project sponsored by Goose and His Mom 

Now for our {This Moment} See Beautiful

Mom prepared a collage to show you all the pets who have made her See Beautiful each and every day for the last 37 years.  She says they all taught her all she knows about 
unconditional love.  Below the collage we will tell you about each
furbabe in order of their arrival into the family.


1.  Toto the mighty mini Doxie was the family's first pet...he helped raise my human sis.  Mom has so many funny stories about Toto and the trouble he got into way he certainly saw beautiful in each day.
2. Milky-Way was the second family pet and first feline.  I'm reminded daily that Milky-Way's gentle soul and mild manner paved the way to the peeps heart for me...which is why he gets the centerfold.   
3. Cali, a Cornish Rex, was my human sis's first cat of her very own which she picked out for her 21st b-day present.    Milky-Way and Cali adored each other.
4. Madi made us realize that all cats are created differently.  She came roaring into our house weighing about 4 tons 4 pounds, took over our hearts and gave me lots of gray hairs.  She was the Energizer Bunny taking names and kicking tush!! 
5. Harley, also a Cornish Rex, is my human sis's second cat.  If you aren't familiar with Rexes...let me just say they have the most wonderful  personalities.
Thank you for visiting today and we hope you all  seize
{THIS MOMENT} SEE BEAUTIFUL

  7. "taking names and kicking tush" sounds a lot like someone I know. Cindi Lou jumps up on a chair whenever Georgia comes into the room. I just noticed that Georgia has markings very similar to Milky Way. Maybe her ancestors came here from NC. I love your collage.

    Hugs,
