Animals have a way of accepting things for what they are…no questions, no reconsidering, no wondering if things could be different. This morning when it was time to take our Bella for her mid-morning walk, she was asleep in her bed in my office. I have been worried the last week that she’s been feeling neglected…my mind and heart have been very preoccupied and although Bella’s routine hasn’t changed, my attentions have not been completely focused during the times I am with her. I’ve wondered if she’s felt less than adored, something I would never wish to happen.
As we got ready for the walk and I put her collar and lead on, I asked her if she was okay and apologized for my preoccupation…letting her know how much I love her and how important she is to us. Her response was “I know. It’s okay. Let’s go for a walk!”
How simple life can be when we live it through the acceptance of what is.
