A Moment in Time: Feeding CNIB Puppy

One of the local grocery stores has a large plastic dog on display where donations can be made for the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB).  Whenever we drive into the parking lot of this store Hannah calls out ‘Doggy Store!’ and always wants to go in.  It’s a challenge to get her to finish our groceries before ‘feeding’ the dog but when we’re done she runs over to give him a hug and make a donation.IMG_2324

Another fun place we like to put money is in the water at ‘It’s a Small World.’  For years I tossed coins into the Asia part of the ride as I awaited Hannah’s homecoming.   Now it’s my sweet little girl tossing ‘wishing coins’ into the water!  (Thanks for the idea to do this Bridge!)


  1. So sweet. A special little family ritual.

    Keep smilin!

  2. You are such a fun mom! I wish I could trade you piano for violin lessons! When you need a violin, I'll send you one wholesale. Shh, don't tell! :)

  3. Oh, so cute!!! she is getting so tall!


  4. Catherine you just made me very nostalgic. We had the same dogs when I grew up in the UK and because my Grandpa was blind we always put money in the dog and any other collection for charity but ALWAYS for the blind.
    Such a sweet girl.

  5. Catherine, I just came across your blog for the first time today...Congrats to your your referral and I'm so very happy for you, your daughter is adorable. I also may add that I love your blog. Did you do this yourself or have someone do it for you? I"m hoping to change ours after we get our referral. I so love the chopsticks at the end of your post.

    Still waiting for our referral after 5 + years with a LID of 8-8-06 we could be next month or for sure Nov.

    Take care and god bless!
