Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”
― Anatole France

 

I am a firm believer that my furry friends, both past and present, have enriched my life in numerous ways.  Some of my very best memories include time I have spent with my pet buddies.

I was raised with animals.  My family had pets in the house as long as I can remember;  cats, dogs, a rescued racoon, duck hatchlings, a rabbit, a snake, fish, gerbils, and guinea pigs.  As I grew older and began raising a family of my own, I have also chosen to share my home with rescued dogs and cats.  As many people who rescue animals know, it is really you who is being rescued.

Being chronically ill, pets have a very special place in my life.  Spending much more time at home and in bed then the average person, I have had the blessing of spending a lot of time with my pets.   Virtually every time I have felt too bad to get out of bed, my doggie curls up and lays right next to me.  There is something especially relaxing, calming and comforting having a living soul breathing next to you.

The question this week is,  Do you have pets, if so what type and how do they enhance your life?

Wishing you a day of peace.
