Animal Family Members – Thankful Thursday

First and foremost, they are not stupid.
At times their personalities more than shine through.
Most learn to control their tempers, though
I‘m certain that it’s only to placate us human members.
Love is given in abundance, even when we don’t please them right away.
Yet I find myself, day after day, being glad that they forgive me for my mistakes.
 

No one can quite forgive like an animal nor remember why they always love you.

Pretty sure that they have 50+ ways to look at me, and all are a variation of “You idiot.”
Even though I know they won’t be here forever, I’ll remember each one.
There is always more room in my heart for another member of my family.
So I must remember to write about them in all the little ways.
 

Remember to check out the original Thankful Thursday.
