    Right now, laying in bed with my cat by feet

    and my dog by my side. It's so weird but I feel so much comfort from these two creatures... Its like their calmly saying, "We're here Joe. We got your back." Sheesh, I love my animals... They aren't even my pets, they're my family.... :)

    Blessed With What I Have
