Hi Grateful Lifers! I want you to meet my new friend, Lucy :) She's the latest addition to the Weebly family (i.e. my boss and his fabulous girlfriend picked her up last week). Hanging out with her on Sunday was the highlight of my weekend! Animals are so incredibly healing to be around and this rolly-polly-wrinkly-little lover filled my cold black heart with a burst of much needed animal TLC...
Nap time! This is literally how she sleeps...(and snores!)...
After a solid hour of play time she passed out again on my lap...
And when I woke her up to move her to her little bed she smothered me with puppy kisses (I mean c'mon...if you're not a puddle right now you are officially the Grinch...)
As I mentioned here, I recently read The Art of Racing in the Rain (a MUST read) and now have a deepened appreciation for dogs and their wisdom. My favorite tid-bit of food for thought from this wonderful book goes along with my post from last week on the power of honoring the reality of our own mortality;
"To live every day as if it had been stolen from death, that is how I would like to live. To feel the joy of life, as Eve felt the joy of life. To separate oneself from the burden, the angst, the anguish that we all encounter every day. To say I am alive, I am wonderful, I am. I am. That is something to aspire to. When I am a person, this is how I will live my life."
I'm thrilled to be a part of this little darlings life! Many adventures to come :)
