It also has great depth when you think of all that a dog does for us. Yes, our dogs are in charge! It is just what they do!
Who waits, with patience and understanding, outside our door when we want to hide from the world?
Who gives us the thumbs up sign, just because they love us just the way we are. No judgement, no conditions, no 'if you will do this for me, I will do something for you.'
Every path has its pebble. But you know what, as Frank Lloyd Wright said, "The longer I live, the more beautiful life becomes." I think our dogs already know this. So when people lie about us, cheat, steal, and try to smash us into the ground, I choose the high road. I am FAR better than this.
Face it. We all have those periods when we are lost. So lost in our sense of low self-esteem that we forget that our lives are an essential and vital part of a greater whole. For me, as Joyce Myers is quoted as saying, "A #2 pencil and a dream care take your anywhere." What about you ? What leads you forward?
