30 Days Of Thankfulness: Day 2: Animal

Fox & Broom|30 Days of Thankfulness

Day 2: Animal

Well, this one is a little sad. I am most thankful for my cat, Nightshade. She has been gone since April of 2007. She was my first roommate and my companion. She would walk on a leash for me and I was able to take her to the park on occasion. She was a great traveler and seemed to have an adventurer’s soul.

I actually bought her from a pet store. I really didn’t have the money for her, but I needed to have her in my life. We connected the moment we looked at each other. I have never had that kind of connection with another pet.

I went through some rough financial times and I always made sure that she had food in her bowl even when I had to skimp on my own meals.

She was crazy and earned the nickname Bitch Cat from most of my friends. She definitely knew what she wanted and how to get it.

I miss her a lot.

30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 1

So, I have never really been the type of person to do the “30 Day Challenges,” but this one struck a chord with me this year. So I decided to give it a shot. I really do have a lot to be thankful for, even with some of the other crap that has gone on this year. Or maybe because of the crap that has gone on this year.

Day 1: Person

The person I am most thankful for (and there are a lot of people to choose from) is my husband. He has been my rock. He makes me see the truth, even when I want to ignore it. Like poking my leg at the hospital to prove to the doctor and nurses that I really am in a great deal of pain. He also makes me laugh and doesn’t judge me for my morbid sense of humor. In fact, he usually joins in on the morbid part.

He is super smart and a great teacher/tutor to our boys. He thinks up great games for them and sometimes builds amazing things out of boxes or couch cushions. He doesn’t always get my weirdness, but he loves me anyway.
