Accepting LoveJune 3, 2022
I am not sure why humans find it so hard to give and accept love from others. My first humans didn’t have the time for me so they shared me with my new humans. I forgive them; they didn’t know how much love and attention that I needed so they gave someone else a chance. All creatures need a little love. Hugs, a smile, holding a hand, or my personal favorite - scratching behind my ears. Reminds me of the song “Put a little love in your heart”. Humans need to look to one another as we pups do - with adoration and wonder. Just giving love. Simple love.
