Please pardon the interruption in my posts … I have scribbled my “thankful” notes each day by hand but due to a business trip, quickly followed by a trip home for the Thanksgiving holidays, I am a little behind on writing the posts.
I am a cat person. (Not a cat lady – a cat person.) Some people are dog people. Not me. It’s not that I don’t like dogs. I just didn’t grow up with them and cats suit my mood and lifestyle much better, so I’m a cat person. In my days of thankfulness, I would be foolish not to pause and be grateful for some of the cats I’ve had throughout my lifetime (not all at the same time, mind you).
What have I learned from this beautiful creatures? It’s simple, really:
Unconditional love. Relaxation. Contentment. Patience. Compassion. Loyalty. Bravery. Playfulness. Rest. Curiosity. Peace. Trust. Satisfaction. And so much more.
I’m so grateful that God created animals – and that I get to share my life with some really special ones along the way.
