This week, my family and I are in quarantine after being exposed to the terrible virus that shall not be named here. Accordingly, my anxiety has been off the charts lately, worrying about myself, my family, and us developing symptoms. But, our kitties are here with us, too. And as usual, they make everything better!
With this being the season of giving and thankfulness, I think it's only fitting I talk a bit about what I'm grateful for this year. Of course, I'm incredibly thankful for my family as a whole. But, there are a few particular furry family members I greatly appreciate; my four sweet kitties, Zen, Kash, Karma, and Bell. I believe that fur babies aren't talked about as much when it comes to this sort of feeling, so I just want to say how my cats have made a difference in everyday life for me.
Always do what is right. Make decisions and choose words you truly believe in. Even when other people try to convince you otherwise, follow your heart and do what you know is right.
Lyrics that speak to my soul, They soothe my racing mind, And fill the void inside The beauty and magic of music, Making me whole
This made me think, animals truly are some of life’s greatest comforts. Not all of my cats are cuddlers, but they still express concern in different ways. They'll give me a little nuzzle, a tiny headbutt, a few leg rubs here and there. Those small actions never fail to warm my heart and soothe my soul.
