The Hardest Part of This Move Is…

Saturday, Feb 04

Being separated from my dogs. Yes, I certainly miss the cats, too, but they’re independent creatures, and do not love me in the same way Sadie and Bernice do.

My pets are in loving hands. They will be with me, on the Triple L, very soon. But the separation is hard, and it requires a lot of prayer.

This morning, in my devotional time, it came to me that I would like to become the person Sadie and Bernice see when they look at me. They love me unconditionally. They always greet me with tail-wagging joy, whether I have been on a mailbox run, or in some far away city. They believe utterly in my goodness, my provision, and my protection. They know I will go to any length for them. I want to see God the same way they see me. And I want to live up to their faith in me, always.

More on the loving hands and hearts that have made this move possible: Mary Ann, Jenni and Larry. Steve and Debi and Bo and Billie. Vicki and Larry Webster. Debbie Korrell. Kathy Bannon, and her cat, Rudy. I am thankful to, and for, all of you. I am grateful to be blessed with such a family, and such good friends. May I be as much a blessing to all of you as you have been, and continue to be, to me.

All this ties into the reasons I write romance. It’s all about love, gang. Furry love. People love. Nothing in all Creation is more important than LOVE.

Look into the eyes of your child, your pet. See yourself as they see you. And don’t assume they’re wrong to love you so much. They’re right, you know.

Pass it on.
