"Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints
and very shabby.

But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand."

~From the Velveteen Rabbit

You don't have to go looking for love when it's where
you come from. 
~Werner Erhard
Prayer of St. Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy;

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to
eternal life.

                         ~St. Francis of Asissi
Love grows by giving. The love we give away is the only love we keep. The only way to retain love is to
give it away.

Fear knocked at the door.

People are often unreasonable, illogical,
And self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you
Of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some
False friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank;
People may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building,
someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness,
they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today,
people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have,
and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you've got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis
it is between you and God ...
It was never between you and them anyway.

~Mother Teresa
(26 August 1910 – 5 September 1997)

A car is made to run on petrol,
It won't run properly on anything else.
God designed the human machine to run on Himself.

of the strong.”

Hear our humble prayer, O God,
for our friends the animals, especially for animals who are suffering;

for any that are hunted or lost or deserted or frightened or hungry;
for all that will be put to death.

We entreat for them all Thy mercy and pity, and for those who deal with them  we ask a heart of compassion
and gentle hands and kindly words.

Make us, ourselves, to be true friends to animals and so to share the blessings of the merciful. 

~Albert Schweitzer  (1875-1965)

Dogs need to sniff the ground; it's how they keep abreast of current events.

The ground is a giant dog newspaper, containing all kinds of late-breaking dog news items...

Which, if they are especially urgent, are often continued into the next yard.

The Animals' 10 Commandments

1 - My life is likely to last 10-15 (or but a few more) years.. any separation from you will be painful for me. Remember that.

2 - Give me time to understand what you want from me. Don't be impatient, short-tempered, or irritable.

3 - Place your trust in me and I will always trust you back. Respect is earned not given as an inalieable right.

4 - Don't be angry with me for long and don't lock me up as punishment. I am not capable of understanding why? I only know I have been rejected. You have your work, entertainment and friends... I only have you.

5 - Talk to me sometimes, even if I don't understand your words I understand your voice and your tone. "You only have to look at my tail".

6 - Be aware that however you treat me I'll never forget it, and if it's cruel it may affect me forever.

7 - Please don't hit me. I can't hit back.

8 - Before you scold me for being uncooperative, obstinate, or lazy, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right foods or I've been out in the sun too long, or my heart is getting old and weak. I may be just tired.

9 - Take care of me when I get old. You too will grow old and may also need love, care, comfort, and attention.

10 - Go with me on difficult journeys. Never say, "I can't bear to watch" or "Let it happen in my absence". Everything is easier for me if you are there. Remember, no matter what you do...
I will always love you.

“We must be silent before we can listen.

We must listen before we can learn.

We must learn before we can prepare.

We must prepare before we can serve.

We must serve before we can lead.”

~William Arthur Ward

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.

It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a
vision for tomorrow. "
