If you don’t know it by now, I’m a dog lover, most specifically, a lab lover. While they play a big role in keeping me moving despite suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and fibromyalgia, their silly playful antics are reminders to have fun and not take life’s challenges too seriously.
I don’t think there is a soul in Texas complaining about the recent rains we’ve enjoyed but the change in pressure and humidity can wreak havoc on those of us managing chronic pain and illness. I walk my labs in our pasture daily and the milder weather
brings out the puppy in our puppies. Seeing all three of them running through standing water, crouching into play mode then chasing, wrestling, and splashing each other is hysterical. Running down the dirt path, brown droplets falling from their bellies remind me that those muddy paws and drenched coats will be inside our house momentarily. But seeing them panting happily, running up to me when I call and gleefully shaking the water off them and on to me is priceless.
They are a reminder that having fun is what life is all about and worrying about a little wet dirty water and mud in the house is not a tragedy.
Yeah, life is good.
