Softening my life

After our dog Ginger died, my brother James and his wife Jeany sent us a card with these words: “Dogs love us unconditionally, softening our lives with sweetness and affection.”

I love those words “softening our lives.” It’s easier to feel calm when you’re sitting next to a dog. It’s lovely when your dog runs to greet you.

We’ll get another dog eventually. But, for now, I’ve been thinking about other things that “soften” my life—children, flowers and trees, family, friends, books.

In this world, which sometimes seems crazy, I am going to try to remember to spend more time with things that soften my life.
