For a Monday, today was spectacular. I woke throughout the night, waiting on enough daylight to head out to search for my daughter’s missing dog. When the time finally came, I had my hands filled with posters, tape, sheet protectors since it was raining…all the necessities. Then I opened the kitchen door to see Ada standing there, tail wagging, paws on the glass. A pretty great moment.
I spent the better part of yesterday online; posting info, hoping for a sighting. I was overwhelmed by the number of people who shared my posts and messaged me concern and support.
People opened my eyes to the goodness of humanity. They reminded me how important it is to be present for people in need. I hope I can be that for someone else.
I spent a lot more time today throwing balls and hugging dogs. I was reminded again how fortunate I am that Ada came home safe and sound. Little things like having all your pets where they are supposed to be: a blessing this Lent.
