Our pets spend their love and their lives devoted to us. Each of our pets have blessed us with a very special relationship. By being in relationship with us, they have given their love and joy to us to share, and even though their physical bodies may be gone, the love and joy stays with us. We cherish and remember them, and share our memories today, on National Pet Remembrance Day. So today, my question is how has your pet blessed you?
