30 Day Gratitude Challenge Post #23 & #24

This is a dual post as I was sick and wasn’t able to lift a finger to type.  I’m grateful for my health and being able to get meds, see a doc, or simply rest in my bed to feel better.  I’m also thankful and amazed at the body and what it can withstand and endure over a course of time.  My dad is living proof and I’m thankful for our medical practices with which we us.

Animals – They are a huge part of my life.  Whether I have them in my home, donate to multiple organizations, or am helping with shelters & fostering programs animals are woven in my daily life.  I think it’s important, even for people who don’t really care to have animals, to be educated about them and to teach our youth the importance to care and respect them all.  Animals teach us about our own self and how to be selfless – much like children.  They don’t have a voice so we must and as humans, a community, and global society learn to respect and understand all types of animals and promote the safety and care of them everywhereToday I am grateful for my animals who teach me every day to have a little more patience and know that I am unconditionally loved – even when I don’t feel loved by one or many of them.
