Cuddles, Kisses, Endless Love 'n Prayers...

It sure has been a difficult week in our home. Our sweet Ferret, Mocha, has taken up most of our time, due to her illness. I was not feeling too great at the beginning of the week, either. God blessed me with a wonderful Husband that has a pure heart of gold. He has been "doing it all" forever, it seems. Though he did not bring me flowers or candy this week, he did bring me Love. He has never faultered once in his care for me or the boys or the pets we own. Throughout this busy week, he found extra time to spend with me, to massage my aching body, to hold me and comfort me, and to pray with me. I am so grateful for all he does. Thank You, God, for allowing this amazing man to be my Husband and friend. I love him so deeply. So does Mocha... below is a photo of her. That is her favorite place to be... in her Daddy's arms...


Mocha also likes to snuggle on the bed, next to her Daddy's leg... makes a wonderful pillow for her...

Here's a photo of Mocha saying hello to all of you... she also is saying Thank You All for praying for me...

She is on my son's bed and is getting alot of attention from us... You can see how her hind legs are very weak from her illness... my sweet girl just sort of drags them behind her when they won't "work" and support her weight... which is only 1.3 pounds...

Mocha is very affectionate... her spirit remains high... here she is with one of her favorite stuffed animals, giving it a kiss...

She is looking up at my oldest son, as he reaches gently towards her...

Ahhh... she is so happy to peek out of the soft sweatshirt she's burrowed in, to give my son some kisses...

Ohhh... she wants more!

My youngest son is happy to lean down and give Mocha soft kisses...

We can tell that she is getting worn out from that short visit with the boys... So my Husband carries her to our bedroom... I'm ready to lay down, too... Mocha loves my chenille robe, so I make sure its on the bed for her...

God bless her precious lil heart... she's exhausted and almost asleep next to her Daddy... Truth be known, I was not far behind her... So, that's what my week was like... quiet... gentle cuddles... soft, tender kisses... Love and Prayers... and Praises to God...

Below is a lil hint of what I have planned for an upcoming post...

I hope everyone is happy and well... and enjoying the beautiful Fall days 'n nights... May your weekend be filled with blessings... gentle cuddles... soft, tender kisses... and endless Love 'n Prayers...
God bless...
Until another time... Pearl

My son had a ferret years ago. We had to get rid of it because my son developed such terrible allergies. That ferret was a cutie but she always nipped at the back of my feet (any female, for that matter). But cute all the same.

I hope your little sweetie is feeling better soon. Blessings... Polly

I'm so sorry your little ferret is sick. I can see by your last few posts how very much Mocha is loved and cherished in your home. Bless her heart! Thank God for good husbands! They make hard times so much easier to bear. Blessings to you both!

Pearl, You are blessed with a loving husband and boys. Your ferrets are so adorable and sweet. I'm so glad you have them for company and that you have rescued them. I'm in the middle of so many projects and subbing too. Thanks so much for stipping by and encouraging me. You are such a lovely lady. God bless you Pearl.

Hugs and well wishes, along with prayers, Kathi

Hi Pearl,
How wonderful your husband is to treat you so well (you deserve it, sweets!).

Hi Mocha! What a cutie pie. Hope everyone enjoyed some special time together last weekend. That chenille robe sure looks cozy, no wonder Mocha loves it.

Wonder what's coming up - I want to say anniversary, but I'm pretty sure I remember that too long ago at all, so I think I'll agree with Rue on the birthday ;)

Take care, Pearl.
