Hello everyone and welcome to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. There has been so much going on this week, not the least of which is the devastation from Hurricane Harvey in Texas. We want to keep everyone, human and pets, in our thoughts and prayers. Their recovery will be a long and difficult one and we’re thankful so many are jumping in to provide assistance, including our own special pal Marjorie from DashKitten.com who is organizing an auction to raise funds for Austin Pets Alive.
But today I’m also thankful for messages from the Rainbow Bridge. Our newer followers might not realize that I had a most wonderful Brother when I came here, his name was Ivan. Ivan was 4 years old when he ran off to the Rainbow Bridge in the middle of the night just 3 days before Thanksgiving in 2009. We were all devastated, especially the Dad, Ivan was his super buddy. Every time the Dad got out of the shower Brother Ivan would dry Dad’s leg for him, mostly in one specific spot. He did it so often the Dad doesn’t have hair on that spot any longer.
Last week the Dad got out of the shower and Brother Simon started drying Dad’s leg, in that exact spot. The Dad knew immediately that Brother Simon was sending a message from Angel Ivan. The next day the same thing happened. The Dad gave Brother Simon a big hug and thanked him for passing on such an important message, clearly a message from Brother Ivan. The Dad asked Brother Simon to tell Angel Ivan that we love him, miss him, and think of him each and every day. I’m thankful the loving message got through and when Dad told me about it I just had to purr.
You just never know when an important message will come through. Are you listening for yours? What are you thankful for today? Tell me in the comments and then hop on in and join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, we’d love it!
