"My mom means more to me than anyone or anything in this world. My best friend comes next, then my fur babies. I don't see a problem with it considering I don't believe in any god." Christina Elaine
Your wonderful mom and your beloved fur babies are gifts from God. They are not the random and accidental result of an explosion of nothing in space.
You should be thankful to Him for His incredible kindness, loving Him with heart, mind, soul and strength.
