I received this friendship award from a very good blogging friend, Peggy. Peggy is a lady serving as a missionary in Mexico and she has a heart which is totally sold out to the Lord. Thank you Peggy for this gift!
This came in my inbox and felt it would go right with this award.
If a dog was the teacher you would learn stuff like:
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy..
When it’s in your best interest, practice obedience.!
Let others know when they’ve invaded your territory.
Take naps. Stretch before rising. Run, romp, and play daily.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
On warm days, stop to lie on your back in the grass.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
No matter how often you’re scolded, don’t buy into the guilt thing and pout .
run right back and make friends. Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
Eat with gusto and enthusiasm. Stop when you have had enough.
Be loyal. Never pretend to be something you’re not.
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.
This are such lovely lessons! Do you have a dog, a cat, any other pet? What can you learn from them? If you have a friend or friends, let them know that you care and how much you appreciate them. Life is short and can be full of hurt, it’s the friends – the true friends you make along the way that make the journey enjoyable.
