In Praise of My Furry Family

photo(10)I wake to the warmth of the dog next to my back and the weight of the two cats on my legs.  Jenny, the dog, rarely leaves my side.  She follows me room to room day and night.  The cats, Cleo and Niles, sleep all day, prowl through the house half the night, but always end up by morning on my bed.

It’s comforting and somehow reassuring to wake surrounded by the animals.    They’re my family.  My teachers.  My saviors.  What would I do without them?  They are always there.  No ceiling on their love or acceptance.    They make no promises, but they deliver so much.  I am truly grateful to have them in my life.
