When year end and holiday gatherings start to add stress more than joy, consider this message from (wo)man’s best friend.
A Timeless Gift from Dogs
Slow down, and embrace your inner stillness. Let the love flow from your favorite furry friends, in exchange for your quietude. There have many times during my volunteer shift at Muttville Senior Dog Rescue where a dog has been my guide to having a meaningful day.
It’s okay, even encouraged, to turn down the volume of the day. Let yourself savor a simple snuggle, whether it is long and luxurious or sweetly brief.
The gift of peace
Open your eyes and heart to a pup’s perspective. Your time together doesn’t have to only be about play, and rushing about.
Take each moment as it presents itself. Appreciate the gift of time together. These are the important memories you will carry throughout the new year.
