Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: Kindness, Smiles and Happy

thankful thursday blog hop brian 03222018 - Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Hello fellow bloggers, it’s that time again and welcome to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Every Thursday we tell you about the things for which we are most thankful. We’re so happy that so many of you are joining us for our blog hop and we’re always excited to see new bloggers hopping by. Your thankfuls always make us smile!

On Tuesday we celebrated the Mom’s Birthday and we tried our very best to make it extra special for her.  You know what?  Y’all out did us, seriously!  All of your comments sure made our Mom feel extra special.  She enjoyed each and every comment, they made her smile and some of the comments brought out a few joyful tears.  I’m so thankful that so many of you joined us for that special day.  Brother Simon did an excellent job on the Birthday post too, way to go Bro!

We need more kindness in the world, really we do.  If everyone was as kind and caring as pet bloggers the world would be a much better place.  That might fall into the “if only” category but it’s certainly something worth striving for each and every day.  So to all of you, thanks for making the world a better place with the smiles that you bring and the kindess and caring you show to others.  Y’all rock!

So tell me, what are you thankful for today?  Tell me in your comments and then come on by and hop right in on the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, we would totally love it.

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

    Well, purrsonally, I’m thankful for so much I couldn’t list it all here. Our purrsonal blessings are endless. But most of all, I’m thankful for…cats. Because, you know…CATS. BTW, that last paragraph is genius. Just sayin’. >^^<

    You know, everyone in the blogging community has lots of different opinions about things, but we all look out for each other and work together anyway! Why can’t everyone be like that?

    I missed your mom’s birthday too! I sure hope she had a wonderful day! I hope you kitties each gave her a snuggle! That’s all I ever want for my birthday, kitty snuggles!

    We’re thankful for so much, and yes, for all the wonderful pet bloggers out there too!

  5. Mickey's Musings

    WE agree Brian.
    It would be such a great thing if all humans could be as kind and friendly as most cat bloggers tend to be 🙂
    Glad to hear your mum enjoyed her day.

    Love, Teddy

    Cat lovers- all pet lovers, actually- truly are special people, and others could learn a thing or two about “nice” from all of us!

    Oh Brian, we are so sorry we didn’t get by Tuesday to wish your Mom a Happy Birthday. Belated Birthday wishes to her and we sure do hope she had a happy one, it sounds as if she did.

    We are thankful for good friends like you, and we are thankful for small kindnesses we encounter. We sure do wish everyone was kinder, what a nicer place the World would be.

    We are so glad your Mom had such a special birthday! Today I am thankful that the latest snowstorm stayed south of us! (sorry to all those that are getting it though!)..

  11. easyweimaraner

    that#s what we think very often… why the world can not be like blogville… but at least with every good comment or every like we know there are a lot of good people around us… and together we maybe can make a change for all…

  12. Madi and Mom

    Morning Brian and yes indeedy we were very proud of how special Simon made your Mom’s bday post.
    That whippersnapper is funny, smart and caring. You have done well training him.

    We recently read a post about how ‘mean’ folks are on other forms of social Media.
    Pet blogs are 87,000% kind and caring
    Hugs madi your bfff and mom

    I’m glad mom had a great birthday.

    I’m thankful that I’m finally feeling better today. I’ve been sick for a week with a sinus infection and it’s not been fun.

    I’m thankful for so many fun and enjoyable blogging buddies. I so love visiting and seeing what everyone is up to.

    Have a purrfect day. My best to your peeps. 🙂

    Happy belated birthday to your mom! You and your family definitely make the world a kinder place, and a happier one, too. We definitely believe that a little bit of kindness goes a long way.

  15. The OP Pack

    We are so happy that Mom had a very happy day. We are doing our best to make our world a happier place despite our mud escapades. We still manage to make Mom smile, and that is a good reason to give thanks.

    I’m so happy to hear your mom had a good birthday. I’m thankful that it’s so overcast, cool and cloudy today. We got a little rain and my dog makes me laugh when he tries to hop over the little puddles.

  20. Molly and my Mom

    Hello Simon and Kitty Cats. We’re terribly sorry we missed your Mom’s special day. We’ll wish her a Happy Belated B Day instead. Our pawrents make our lives special so it’s only fair we let them know how wonderful we think they are especially on their B days.

    We’re thankful Mom sat down here at the computer long enough to join the Blog hop today and even post a story Tabby Cat dictated. This has been a longggg time coming. We’re just glad to be back, (though with Mom feeling better now days we’re never sure for how long).

  21. Dexter

    Happy belated birthday, Mom! We are thankful that we don’t live out east today and the birds are coming back to taunt me. But they can chirp all they want because I am the fierce King of the balcony. Gotta go, someone’s making a sandwich.

    I love that your mom had a special birthday and you know. I have thought for the ten years I have been blogging, me, Admiral and Katie— that the CB and the Anipals on Twitter are the kindest most caring and loving people on earth. I mean it. We are all for helping one another…we love one another’s cats and dogs and we help every chance we get.

  23. Eastside Cats

    Brian, I think it’s so cool that your mom and I share a birthdate! Most years, it’s the first day of spring, but once in awhile it the last day of winter. Seems so positive to be first rather than last, but it’s always rotten weather..lol!

  24. Kitties Blue

    Cooper Murphy was in charge of out thankful this week. He is over the moon about being selected for the Cheer Team at Cat Scouts. We are all happy the snow is melting before the next snowstorm hits this Saturday. We’ll be even more thankful when spring actually arrives.

    You are so right. Pet parents make the best people and they have us to thank.
