Is this a gift or a curse to know? 

Do we ever think of how grateful or thankful we can be each day? How often?   

I have a young living beautiful dog. I love her.  She would call herself not a grateful dead dog but living and happy. She gives me inspiration and a heart of gratitude as her owner.  She recovered from LUPUS when given no hope by three vet clinics nor did the vets hear of any healed dogs from LUPUS.   WE WON so they had to be wrong! I am a proud mom seeing my dog healed.  She is now 11. This is recent and amazing! Don't quit regardless of what others say about your circumstance or here my dog our could be your pet.  You are more emotionally attached to the dog than your vet who sees the dog sometimes. You see the dog all the time.  There is a difference between "some and "all."  Therefore go with your heart. A diagnosis or biopsy as we had were great.

Three powerful, magical questions to ask yourself

I am grateful for many reasons, but here we are talking about dogs so let me ask you only 3 questions relevant:

1. Have you ever needed your vet fast?

2. How often do you visit the pet store and buy new food?

3. Have you received excellent services from vet, the pet store or the cashier?

The real big question is: how often did you write a letter to the store, the manager or the corporation complimenting the employee?

I look for opportunities to practice sharing gratitude daily.  It may not be in the form of a card, or a Send out  Card, but it can be a handwritten note on a piece of plain paper, expressing my gratitude.

An unique example of Gratitude

Yesterday I went to the dentist with a Pumpkin Pie from Whole Foods.  Why? I am thankful they give me fabulous service. So just another way to express gratitude.

Whether you are paying for someone or not the words "thank you: are magical.  Don't keep gratitude a secret. Bring it out of the closet now.  It may take a few changes to what you are used to but it's always available to learn and practice more of. 

"Silent gratitude isn't much use to anyone."  ~G.B. Stern

God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today.  Have you used one to say "thank you?"  ~William A. Ward

I would love you to see me here on Facebook as my friend so we can stay connected.    

Also my Free Report is here.  Would love staying connected.

Carol, I love your enthusiasm and passion!

Thanks Elvie. I never assume. I only choose the best for my big girl doggie! She’s precious.

Carol Giambri January 21, 2011 at 12:41 am

Thanks for kind words Claudia! I sure hope the dog owners will feel my love like I want them to feel that way about their precious position. Never a bad dog–could be the untrained owner!

Susan, Totally amazing story of “mustard seed” faith and not quit regardless of the disease or diagnosis! We WON and now time to shout it out to others in similar situation of an dog disease.

Carol Giambri January 21, 2011 at 12:43 am

Thanks Sue. I love this dog so much I am enthusiastic when I think of her, as one passion and a big message to the masses of dog owners out there. I have other passions that I am going to bring on board too all relevant to what I believe and love!

Hi Carol, I’m very happy to hear that your dog has been healed. It does seem like a miracle, they havent even found a cure for humans yet. you have amazing strength!
Stay Great,

Carol Giambri January 21, 2011 at 1:35 am

Thanks LaTalya. It is amazing story as being a dog owner over 40 years never heard of one dog with Lupus. WE won with my strong mustard seed faith and going with my heart of choices available. Natural is my best option always! Again, thanks.

Carol, I love how much you love your dog. Your passions shows through.

Carol Giambri January 21, 2011 at 4:58 am

Thanks Jamie for comment and truly do love the dog. She’s amazing!

Elvie January 21, 2011 at 12:36 am

Great reminder, especially when you think about the service our beloved babies get. The last time I took my senior poodle to the vet, she actually saw a doctor, chiropractor, acupuncturist and nature path all in the same treatment. Then there is the groomer…. You are a great voice for our babies.

Thanks Carol for reminding us to go the extra mile in showing gratitude. The guy in Office Max made a great suggestion and I was so grateful. I thanked him of course. I’ll consider going even further the next time:) Is that your dog in the header? :)

Carol, thank you for these great ideas! I have a “miracle dog” as well and your viewpoint is so refreshing. I can literally feel your passion through my computer!

Carol Giambri January 21, 2011 at 1:37 pm

Many thanks so much for sharing. I love these “miracle dog” stories. It makes my heart sing and I am glad you are feeling my love. If you can let others know about me I would love it to spread this vital message. I don’t have any products yet, but do have planned a “dog photo” contest. How cool is that? Any suggestions you can offer please contact me privately. FB works sweet! Yeah for our miracle dogs and so excited for us!
