Thankful Thursday: Doing Just One Thing

      49 Comments on Thankful Thursday: Doing Just One Thing

 

Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it!

It’s often said that this is the season for giving.  Purrsonally, we like giving much more than we do receiving.  There are many, of all species, that don’t have much at all.  We are the fortunate ones, so let’s not forget those who are typically just happy to make it through the day.

I am happy to see lots of our pals helping out with toys for shelter critters.  That is super wonderful.  But everyone doesn’t do it.  So, this will be short and sweet today.  I would be most thankful if everyone just did one thing to make life better for someone else, be it critter or human.  Just one thing.  We can all do something.  Put your imagination hat on and imagine how much better the world would be if everyone just did one nice thing for someone else.

Thanks for being our friends!  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

So true! I love to give too even though I’m very limited on what I can give. Sometimes I think it is best to remember that you can’t save the world single-handedly. Just try to do one thing for one person/animal at a time.

What a perfect thought and challenge for the day, Brian.

I so agree, if you see the joy about a gift you made, then it is like a gift for yourself too. I donated food for the pups who have no home and I hope they will like it and I hope they know that they are in my thoughts and in my heart.

That us such a good idea. Our Mom loves to do things for other Peeps and especially for animals. It makes her feel so good.
That is a great picture of you Brian. Have a great day.

Brian, we will forever be thankful for all that you did to help our Jewel and to help Milita when she really needed her dental surgery. The Mom tries to make the shelter kitties’ lives better by going to visit them and giving them love. Hers hopes that it makes a difference for them.

What a very sweet post. There are many things to do that won’t cost any money like visiting shelter animals, holding the door for someone ( this should always be done anyway, but many don’t) or just smiling when you walk past someone can brighten their day.

That is a wonderful and kind request, Brian. We didn’t do paper cards this year and instead made a donation to our local rescue.

If everyone were to do even just one thing nice for someone else, we could start a revolution of kindness. How wonderful would that be?

We are going to help Gramma on the weekend as she has been feeling poorly for a few months now, and I bake cookies and bring them to our neighbor dogs every year for Christmas 🙂 Bert has no plans to help anyone but himself to more food. He needs to learn to share.

that is a good thing to wish for….we think sometimes people get overwhelmed by things they see and end up not doing anything. just one little thing makes a difference to that person or creature

We agree and one thing we did this year was to surprise someone with just a little extra unexpected Christmas Cheer. We get so much more out of seeing someone else happy than we do by any of the gifts we receive.

Oh wouldn’t that make for just the bestest world for all humans and critters! Mom tries to do just a little more each year to make up for those who can’t help ’cause we’ve been really blessed to have efurrything we need.

That is a lovely thought Brian. Me and my mum have packaged up several boxes of cat food for our local very small rescue. We picked out some of my lightly used toys as well and they are marinating in nip ready to be packaged up as well.

You’re right Brian, helping just one person or critter, even in a small way, can make a big difference.

M has 2 bags of kitty food and a bag of toys to deliver to the vet’s office tomorrow. They are collecting for our Humane Society in our city. This is the first time I have been aware of a drive like this locally, so they must be really hurting and in need. Christmas is all about giving, from the heart.
