Today's theme is animals. This was an easy one only because Carrie and I are cat-sitting two lovely kitties this year. Here they are in their loveliness!

I have always owned a cat. I was shocked to discover, when I was in college, that I am allergic to cats. My allergist told me to keep the cat, as it will build up my tolerance. I gladly said okay! He then said that when I have kids I should let them roll around in the dirt and get dirty then let them stay that way for a few hours before I wash them! Ha! That makes me laugh but makes sense because, as he said, since I have allergies my children are more likely to have allergies so I need to allow them to build up tolerances as well. I guess this means that my children will have pets. They bring happiness and help children learn responsibility, hopefully! I am thankful for cats today because I am still allergic to them but not nearly as badly as I could be! Thank you Lord for animals and all of the beauty and lessons they bring! :)
