Tapping into Our Gifts
Those of you who've met me or talked with me know about my love for dogs. I've volunteered with my local animal rescue group for over 25 years. Some of you may be aware that in the last month our family has lost two gentle souls. The grief I feel is equal to the joy they brought into my life.
I'm left with the idea that dogs are braver than I could ever be. Even understanding they don't anticipate death, worrying about it as we do; still, they seem to go forward, courageously facing whatever life brings them. I like to think they teach us what is obvious to them.
We step into each new day dragging a whole complex of memories, emotions, and thoughts, some fearful or negative, sometimes resisting, then looking back regretting decisions made. Somewhere in the middle, we miss the present.
Our animal friends are always right there, waiting for us to connect with them, where there is no fear of death or separation. They wait for us, ever present right to the end. What beautiful, gentle, reminders they are, teaching us not to overlook what's truly important.
Thanks for reading, I'm so glad we're on this journey together!
