Every day brings new opportunities for us to experience a life filled with love and laughter, and our pets often are the source of that much-needed love and laughter. Yet, I am compelled to pause and ask myself, do we fully appreciate them and their amazing, priceless gifts? How many times do the moments of simple joy, of careful patience, or of quiet play escape us because we are busy, distracted, or desensitized to our pet's wonderful personalities and innocent hearts?
My blog is short today because I challenge us to focus on the goodness that our pets offer without the requirement of payment. Full, unadulterated acceptance, love, faith, and joy are given with only the hope of being cared for and loved in return.
This week had National Pet Day. Let's all honor and love our pets everyday.
