Through all of the things Chris and I have been through there has been a constant. As sappy as this sounds this constant is our pets.
When we didn’t want to get up in the morning, we had a smiling face (those of you who know Scarlett know her smile!) begging us to get out of bed and face the day. It has eight long months since we lost Dominic and Scarlett has been by our side trying to make us happy the whole time. She is full of energy and life, and it’s contagious.
Scarlett has helped remind to just be happy. Her attitude is one we can all learn from! Just enjoy life. That isn’t always easy for most of us. With the stress of jobs, and life it is easy to forget the positives.
For me, there has been a lot of work related stress lately. I come home and I immediately feel a weight lifted off of me. I see my adorable animals and I forget about my horrible day. Some how cats and dogs lower my stress. Playing with them and petting them helps me not take everything so seriously. It helps me be calm.
It just amazes me how two little furry creatures have really enriched my life. It makes me really excited to have kids one day. I can only imagine how much they will add to my life and all I will learn from them.
