It’s been a while since I have blogged. Yesterday a thought struck me and it has managed to stay with me (I don’t always retain my thoughts!), so I thought I’d share.
It started with a saying. We’ve all heard it. The best things in life are free. Is that true? Hmm.
Three weeks ago, my NON-dog loving (all caps were used on purpose here) husband came home from work with a puppy. At first I thought it was a joke. Then I thought maybe I was dreaming. Next I moved to shock. Finally, I realized he was completely serious. A little puppy had found my husband’s heart. He was a stray and somehow, with those almost-black-eyes and little white-heart-shaped-fur-spot on his head, had melted away a piece of him.
We did all the checking to make sure no one was missing him, and then…we adopted him.
Free. (well, minus the vet bills, food, toys, etc )
I’ve watched this little guy over the last three weeks. He’s taught me a few things about life.
We, of course, got him some treats and healthy food. But you know what his FAVORITE foods are? The “droppings” he finds on the kitchen floor.
We bought him special toys…all kinds of toys that promised to keep him entertained. Do you know what his FAVORITE toys are? The squirrel bones he found in the back yard. The box that delivered his toys. A piece of fuzz. A piece of paper. A cricket.
We made him a couple of beds…snugly…soft…warm. Do you know where he WANTS to be? Right beside us…as close as possible. (love!)
The best things in life are free. Are they? Consider:

Enjoy the free things in your life today! They are the best things! Truly.
