(#41) The Good People In Your Life

Lately, I’ve heard the humans talk about thanks and giving. The two words bring smiles to their faces.

As best I can tell, thanks is offered when one human shows or gives kindness to another.

While I cannot say the words, I hope Steve and his friends know I say thanks every time they give me a belly rub, ear scratch, or just say my name. Their acts of kindness go far beyond biscuits. (Yes, I did say that.) My extended paw and wagging tail speak doggie volumes. I am lucky to have good people in my life. And it reminds me of a story I told at the end of my book (Story 52). As my thanks to you, I give it here for you to ponder.  Appropriately enough, it happened while on the beach.

 *****

As Steve and I sat on the sand and watched the sun rise over the water, a neighbor approached and said hello. She looked at me stretched out on the cool soft beach. She smiled and said, “It’s a good day to be dog.”
And then she added, “Every day’s a good day to be a dog.”

 Steve smiled and said, “Especially if there are good people in that dog’s life.”

 Amen.

And thank you for being the good people you are to so many others.

*****

I’ll leave you with a few questions. Maybe you can woof about them with a special person in your life. One for whom you give thanks.

  • Who are the good people in your life?
  • What do they do or not do that makes them good?
  • Who would say you are one of the good people in their lives? Why?

Thank you for sharing my blog with your friends.

In my new book, Roxie Looks for Purpose Beyond the Biscuit, I share stories and lessons about friends, family, and fun. And I speak about purpose as well.  (Steve says for dogs we might just want to call it “furpose.” He makes words up, I think.) Perhaps the book holds a biscuit or two for you!

WOOF!
