Today is the first day in over month that I have been able just stay home and relax. It feels so incredible to be able to curl up on the couch, binge watch on Netflix, and cuddle with my husband & dogs! I think it is really important that we take time out to just relax. Put aside our stress, put aside our worries, our anxieties, and just relax.
Take time to enjoy your day and those you love today!
I love rain! Especially in Arizona! It seems like an entire new world when the rain falls into the dusty ground new life springs to life!
Right now, it is pouring outside and I’m curled up by the fire, snuggling with the dogs and watching You’ve Got Mail! Incredible way to spend a Friday night!
After this thanksgiving break, I feel so relaxed! It is amazing!
I can’t think of a better way to start this beautiful Sunday than with dog cuddles and Netflix.
God is good!
No matter what I am doing, how I am feeling or acting, Tripod is always right by my side. Dogs have the greatest sense of loyalty, in my opinion, out of all the animals. I love my dogs ❤️
Two of my favorite cuddle buddies!
A few weeks ago I posted about how my dogs have taught me the importance of being non-judgmental. Since that post, I have been paying more attentions to the qualities that my dogs possess that I can draw from to become a better person. I have noticed, and I am sure many of you have as well, that dogs are extremely loyal. For example, I was away for a conference last week, and my husband called to tell me that Tripod would not eat because she was so upset that I was not at home. She would wait by the gate, just hoping to see me drive up the driveway and come cuddle. I was gone for two days, and I was so sad to hear she was devastated. When I am home, she will constantly be by my side ready to give me a kiss or snuggle up beside me. Currently she is pressed up against my leg taking a little nap.
My other two dogs are also very loyal. Whenever we have company over they will hover around my husband and I just to make sure we think the visitors are worth being friends with. They are always there when I need a little wet nosed pressed against my cheek. They never question my judgment and are always there to lend an ear (even though they can’t understand me, they at least look at me like they do lol).
I want to be able to give my friends and family the same feeling of comfort and assurance that I will be there for them whenever they need me. I want to let them know that when they are not around, I miss spending time with them. Of course taking it to Tripod’s level would be a little unhealthy, but she was a rescue dog so we treat her with a gentle touch. I believe dogs are a wonderful example of how to be a great and loyal friend.
I feel so loved when my pups want to cuddle me in the mornings. When they follow me everywhere I go, and when they get so excited to see me they apart explode! I never had a dog until I was 26, so I never understood why people were so attached to their dogs, but I totally get it now! I love them!
The best way to start the weekend is with cuddling and Netflix!
Through my window I see the moon is really bright,
I suppose that is because it is the middle of the night.
The snores of my dogs resound in my ears,
And my husband’s arms keep away my fears.
My lids grow heavy and its hard to stay awake,
So it is off to dreamland until dawn will break.
