Thankful Thursday: Thankful For All I’ve Got

 

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!

I, like many of you, have tried to make sense of the horrible event that occurred in Boston this week, and I have been completely unsuccessful.  I just shake my head and wipe the wet from my whiskers.  How can such a beautiful day turn out so horribly for so many?

So, even though this is a shorter post than normal, I am thankful today.  I am thankful that when my Dad and Mom leave the house for a while that they come back to me safe and sound, and oh so happy to see all of us.  I am thankful for the time I get to spend just being family.  My heart cries for those who can no longer enjoy these simple pleasures.  I am thankful for all that I’ve got and that I get to keep it for a while longer.

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

You are so right Brain.
Even so, we are also thankful for everything as well.
If everyone knows about thankful,
there will be always peace on earth.

Brian, you have a lot to be thankful about… we all do. Unfortunately, sometimes it takes a tragedy for us to realize it….

i just found out one of the girls on my team at work was there… Her husband ran and she was a few blocks away with her kids….

It makes us very upset that one mad person has changed the life of so many innocent people. Why can’t people just accept others have just as much right to live on this planet in peace as they do?

Well said Brian. We feel the same way. We are so thankful to have our Person here and to come home everytime she goes out for awhile. Hope all of you have a great day.

We were so upset to see terror of the people at the Boston marathon – there are some very evil people about. We hope they catch him, lock him up and throw away the key.

We cannot figure out why such awful things happen either, Brian. It makes us and mommy sad. It also reminds us to be thankful for every day that we get to spend together, loving one another. We hope for many more days like this for all of our friends.

Brian, you look so thoughtful. What happened in Boston was so terrible and sad. You’re right that there are so many things to be thankful for. Although I’m struggling greatly with the loss of Lucy, I’m thankful for Simba and Annie and our home and our many blessings. Thanks for this reminder.

The acts in Boston were a tragedy created by evil people on purpose!. The small town of West, Texas was partially destroyed by people trying to make a living. A fertilizer plant exploded late yesterday evening. We are not close to it, but people south of us felt the concussion!

Wonderful post, Brian.

We really do have to be thankful every day, because reality is that tragedy of one sort or another can strike at any time.

All the more reason to spend time with those we love and let them know how much they mean to us!

Amen Brother! We were all glad that Pop wasn’t in NYC that day since they were at High Alert also. I’m kinda P.O.ed that even after my Blog the Change, those nitwits STILL voted against background checks and assault rifles. I’m thankful I’m a cat.

Very wise indeed, here at your feed. Thankful as well, all return where we dwell.

Diane@BibliophilebytheSea

Very sad indeed, just when we begin to feel a little more secure. We live about 90 minutes from Boston, and this marathon is such a big deal to so many. The perfect way to celebrate time in the city with family and friends and now this.

Brian, you are a very astute cat. We all should be thankful to be safe and sound with our families. With not only the continued threat of terrorism but also these horrendous occurrences perpetrated by our own citizens, we never know when any one of us might be caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. We must stay grateful everyday. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josettte

And we are thankful for wonderful friends like you who remind us to be thankful for our families and those we love and the safety of our homes. Like you, the WDA does not understand the “why” of such a hateful, cowardly act but we grieve for all the loss and pain inflicted.

Brian Sunday, London will be out in support of Boston as it is our marathon. What a dreadful week for America. We pray for all those involved in Boston and Waco. Take care.

Brian, this was so beautifully stated and we couldn’t agree more “My heart cries for those who can no longer enjoy these simple pleasures. I am thankful for all that I’ve got and that I get to keep it for a while longer.”
