The Delightful Innocence of Youth

Delicious Curiosity

“Today was good.  Today was fun.  Tomorrow is another one.”    Dr. Seuss

As a child, I never thought about the next day.  Life was always a blast and the future just wasn’t a concept.  My youthful, innocent and trusting horse Remington gives me the gift every day of pure delight and enchantment with whatever comes his way.  Yes, he spooks at new stuff and he looks to me to help him understand safety and comfort…but his happy, anything- goes attitude is a gift I hadn’t even considered when thinking about getting a new horse. 

All animals have the ability to lift our spirits with their moment-to-moment way of living life.  As care-takers of these precious beings, I think it is our responsibility to preserve and treasure their beautiful sweetness and to allow their way of looking at things to rub off on us. By listening to the animals, we realize child-like wonder is something that can stay with us forever.

    Dear Mary. You are most welcome! I needed to hear this same message from the animals too! My Remington is a blessing and a reminder that there is fun and wonder in each and every day. I am so fortunate to have him (and all animals) in my life.
