This may be late in the day to say my ‘thankfuls’ but I honestly try to think of them each and every day; my own experiences have taught me much about what I am grateful for. Holding your past trials close keeps you grateful for your comparative fortune of today, especially when it’s a rough one!
I also know the gratitude of a rescued animal; they don’t need a special day to show you how grateful they are for a warm home and heart, food and safety. You can see it and feel it. Cats are some of the most honest creatures I know; they certainly don’t mess around when it comes to showing you how they feel! I am grateful for the purity of a companion animal’s love and spirit.
I’m more than grateful to the animals that have been in my life – they have given me so much – and to those people who do the powerful work that they do to help animals in need. I’m also thankful to have been given the ability to create art and document with my camera, and for those who support me and my work.
And my former foster kitty, Licorice, who is hoping ‘Black Friday’ is a lucky day for him at the rescue tomorrow…I hope it’s been a good day for you this Thanksgiving – there is always much to be grateful for…

“Animals are reliable, many full of love, true in their affections, predictable in their actions, grateful and loyal. Difficult standards for people to live up to.” ~ Alfred A. Montapert
