Welcome to another post for the ’12 Days of Being Chronically Thankful’ in which i share everything that I am thankful for whilst living with a chronic illness.
Today, on the ’10th Day of Christmas’ I was thankful for…an animal or pet!
Well, this is an obvious choice, as of course, I am thankful for our pet dog Honey!
I have written about Honey before – the way in which she looks after me so faithfully when I am in bed, unable to get up out it, continuously by my side watching over me like a guardian angel. Or if I am unwell whilst downstairs, she will come and sit by my side, cuddling into me, providing me with all the comfort to try and make me feel well again, or if it’s a bad day she will give me plenty of cuddles and kisses to put a big smile on my face!
And she is so protective of me – not liking when someone knocks on the door, rings to doorbell, puts something through the letterbox or even come in – especially when I am on my own, and even more so when I am not well (which is the majority of the time anyway!)
And for that I am ‘chronically’ grateful!
