Thankful Thursday: I’m Thankful for My Pets

Some people might find being thankful for your pets silly, but I truly am thankful for mine. I believe we can thank God for anything (and should thank him for everything), and my pets bring such comfort and happiness to my life.

Any of you who follow my Instagram or are connected to me via Facebook or Twitter probably get annoyed at how many pics I post of my pets. Lol. #sorrynotsorry Yet I believe that sometimes God sends us pets when we most need them.

While I’ve purposefully went out and gotten a pet before, I’ve had many pets that I did not go in search of. Instead, they simply wandered up to the house and became a part of my life. I happened upon some of my dearest pets this way, and I truly believe that God placed them in my life. Even with the pets I set out to adopt, I think it was God who placed the thought in my head.

Our pets become like our family members, and they are wonderful companions. Oftentimes when no one else can cheer me up, a nuzzle from Mixie, Trixie, Tom or Jerry can.

So this Thursday, I tell God, “Thank you for sending your animals to me and allowing me to care for them. Please help me do so to the best of my ability, according to your will.”

Do you have any pets you are thankful for? If so, feel free to discuss them below or post pictures.
