Day 7: Pets
Today I’m remembering how grateful I am to have pets. I’ve had a pet for as long as I can remember. I’ve had dogs, a cat, a hamster, some fish, and even a plant or two along the way(I’m kind of bad with these. :/) Whatever the species, pets are amazing! They give us unconditional love and loyalty. All they ask for in return is food, shelter, and love.
Additionally, pets are important because they give strength to the sick, teach kids responsibility, protect owners from danger, lay beside us when we’re sad. They know how we feel. They may not have any words to offer, but instead offer themselves wholeheartedly and I can’t imagine my life without a pet. There’s nothing quite like coming home after a long day to see a wiggling body eagerly greeting you on the other side of the door, or the warming purr of a delighted feline. To anyone who’s never had a pet, you’re missing out. There is no substitute for the love of a pet.
