W is for Wishes

  . . .as in Birthday Wishes!!!
First, I’ll start with this lovely lady
Her name is Ann Marie
 Years ago she would come in to eat lunch all the time. One day my boss said to her, “ You might as well work here!?” . . . so she did!Now Ann Marie  helps wash the dishes. She was never married & does not have any kids . . .  a few months ago the only family that she had left- her sister, past away. Last week she was crying that she really didn't have anyone that cared about her birthday . . .


Wait it gets even worse . . .
Her cat, who she had for 14 years, died last Thursday . . .so sad:(
People at work were talking about Ann Marie & how they felt bad about what she had been going through. My boss wanted to get her something special & surprise her on her birthday!
I really wanted to at least  try to help  make her birthday a little special?
Yesterday Me & Josh looked all over at different kittens to see if we could find a good match for Ann Marie . . .
Can You guess which one we liked best?!?
Then we picked up a cake &  gifts . . . my boss got everyone together  that was working . . . I even surprised Josh early at school so he could come to the party . . .


I think she was happy-Happy 61st Ann Marie!
Then we had to celebrate another lil’ ladies very special 1ST Birthday!
This is Paige my beautiful niece . . .
This is her big sister Lainey . . . my other beautiful niece,
We had a great dinner:)
Happy Birthday Lil’ Momma
We Love You!

REAL QUICK- I just want to mention that Ann Marie did say on Sunday that she really wanted to get another kitten . . . but didn't have the extra money at the moment . . .she had also mentioned that she wanted a black or gray female! So I was happy when we found one:)

Happy birthday to Anna Marie, so sad to hear of her cat passing away. I had one that lived to 14 but was diabetic for the last 4 yrs of her life,
Love the photo's of the beautiful cats.
Have a wonderful day.
