thankful thursday blog hop brian 12202018

Hello everyone, welcome to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, you know the drill and you also know that we are always happy to see you! Every Thursday we post about things we are thankful for and we’re sure ready to do that today. We really enjoy reading about all of the things you are thankful for too and we sure love it when we see new blogger pals hopping in to join us!

It’s hard to believe but we’re getting close to the end of 2018.  I know most of you know this, but it was a tough year here at Brian’s Home.  We had way too many losses and added way too many Angels.  It was so tough losing 4 of my sisters so quickly, we loved them all dearly.  Through our grief and sadness you were right there with us.  You lifted us up and you held us in your hearts.  You all made it a wee bit easier for us.

So, as Christmas 2018 approaches I want to say thank you all for being such wonderful friends.  I’m not sure we would have made it thought without you and we are so very thankful for you, yes, you.  Thanks too to so many of you for joining us on our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.  Our hop is only successful because of you and all of the things we are all thankful for each and every day.  Love and hugs to you all.

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

You have had way too many losses this year. It’s been a tough year in that respect. Kali joined your 4 at the bridge this year and our path was ripped out from under us. We are starting to mend and can find the amusing things Kali did. These are memories we’ll always have.

We are delighted to have friends like you…..all of you.

No matter how long we have our loved ones, it isn’t long enough. Thursday i will be thankful as it’s time to deliver my angel tree gifts.

It was a sad year to be sure and all my love goes out to you. Brian and the gang always lighten up my day. Today I’m thankful that this day is over, ugh. But I’m also happy to have had a nice get together with some of the family last night. And bonus, one of my favorite kitties showed his sweet face even with all those people invading his castle.

Brian, the cat blog community holds each other up, and I too am grateful for the love that everyone has shown when we lost Chuck last year. Folks without cats (or pets) just aren’t on the same wavelength, so they have no concept of how painful losing a furry family member is, let alone several.

That’s exactly what friends are for!!! And we know that you do the very same for your friends too. We are still very sad when we think of all the Angels you have, but we take heart in knowing that they were loved every day they were with you.

You had a very sad year and so did those of us that love you and your sisters. Then you had all that dental work done and your dad had a health scare. I hope next year treats your family much better.

Of course we are there, for you and with you, whenever great sadness happens, as well as great joy. It has been a really tough year for you, and we hope the next one wil be a much happier one for you.
