I walk this adorable dog who loves the rain. I would almost think that she waits for it longingly and when it comes - she gets extra happy, lifting her nose up to the rain, welcoming it. She prances a little more, her tail wags a little more, and her eyes brighten. Her favorite part of the walk is the end, when she comes home, and the towel is waiting.
She absolutely loves getting toweled off - she shows so much joy, and runs in circles around me, and talks and talks and talks. She wiggles and her tail wags, and she tells me how much she loves it. Later on, I started thinking about what we all wish for, what we all want, and we always think of the next best thing ... and I wonder if it should really be as simple as lifting our head to the rain, being grateful for a dry towel, and a warm house, and someone to share the moment with. Have a great weekend!
