I know I say this often but I am so grateful for my dogs and their snuggly nature. I'm reading a book called The Art of Racing In The Rain and in it there is the thought that perhaps dogs can reincarnate as humans once they evolve enough to override their base instincts. But what if instead we evolved to be more like our dogs. What if we loved unconditionally and always ran to greet the ones we loved at the door? What if the simple thought of a walk outside was enough to make our whole body wiggle with excitement? Sure there would still be some personality conflicts but with a little socialization they could put their differences aside and just play together. What would the world look like if we practiced a little more of their unconditional love? I'm so grateful for my dogs. I'm grateful for all the love they share with me despite my absences and the times like this that I am on my computer and not petting their sweet heads. I'm grateful for the forgiveness they give to me and their ability to accept me as I am. I'm grateful for their cold noses and their warm hearts. How can you show the people in your life unconditional love today? What would be so bad about racing to the door to greet them?
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
