Being Human


A friend asked me today to write what I am grateful for as she is doing her annual Thanksgiving project (I will link you to this later in the month).

My beloved dog teaches me how to forgive everybody and every thing.

I bow to the whole darn gorgeous mess.”

Sometimes, the privilege of our shared humanity pushes a deep and low sob from the bottom of my belly.
