May all of us savor what we have, and not let what we don’t have interfere with our gratitude.
May all of our dogs, cats, horses, birds, ferrets, rabbits, sheep, cows (etc) live the best life they can, secure in knowledge of how much we love them.
May the people who abuse animals, whether through fear or ignorance, learn the joy of a relationship built on kindness and understanding.
May the four pounds I’ve put on in the last few days melt away, somehow, magically, whilst I continue to savor the joys of consumption.
Wishing you love, relaxation and oxytocin-filled contentment over the holidays. I’ll be back posting next week.
