Animals have a way of grounding us….helping us establish a clear way of thinking. I am blessed to have so many animals in my life….and I am reminded daily of their simple, refreshing way of looking at things. When I have a stressful day, filled with tension, pressure or uncertainty, I can always rely on my relationships with animals to bring me back to what’s really important. Love, kindness, food, play, affection….these are the things that make their world complete.
When I am overwhelmed with trying to figure stuff out and feeling consumed with life’s challenges, I can always turn to my animal friends who will gladly remind me that the most important thing right now is a yummy new treat or a chase around the house with a new toy or a nice bare-back ride around the ranch property or a good belly rub or a cuddle before sleep.
Animals remind me about what’s important…..and it usually doesn’t have anything at all to do with the stuff I was worried about.
