My Belated Gratitude Challenge

I found a blog recently written by a Crohnie called My Journey with Crohn’s. Sarah, the site’s author, recently did a week-long series on gratitude. I’m a little bummed that I didn’t find her blog sooner otherwise I totally would have participated.

Every day for one week, she posted five things that she is grateful for (in the spirit of Thanksgiving). On the last day, she also posted what some of her followers are grateful for. It’s such a great idea, given how unsettling and upsetting Crohn’s and UC can be, to think about gratitude and give thanks to the things that are good in your life.

That being said, while I won’t list 35 things that I am grateful for, I will do a short list here in the spirit of her series from last week.

The healing power of pets

I’ve known for a long time that pets (dogs in my case) can sense when something is wrong. When I’m upset, Bomber, my Shetland Sheepdog, will climb in my lap and act super cute to cheer me up. That’s the reason I love pets so much- they provide you with so much love and comfort in ways that human companionship doesn’t. I mean, it would be pretty weird if my husband crawled into my lap and acted cute when I was sad, right?

Bomber has done wonders for Dan. Growing up, Dan never had a pet but loved dogs. When we started dating six years ago, I had a Shetland Sheepdog who was the sweetest little fuzzball, and Dan adored her. We both knew we would get a dog, but we didn’t know when. And Dan surely didn’t know how profound his impact would be on his life.
