King, loving me unselfishly

                                              November 1, 2012

     The love of a dog is true love. The experts and some others say dogs and animals are incapable of those kinds of feelings. I say p*ss on the experts, they have evidently never had a good dog … or perhaps they are not very good dog owners!

     I have had dogs and horses too, that in my mind, have loved me unselfishly. Those animals will stay by you no matter what. I teat my animals well, but it is more than that. Respect is a given, but to take the time to get to know an animal and to bond with them is when true feelings come out.

     Animals know who is genuine and who is just going through the motions. The bond with them is heart-felt. It is two directional and just like any other relationship has to be worked on daily. It is however, well worth the effort.

     I didn’t understand love for a very long time in my life. I made some heart wrenching mistakes. I did get it all sorted out and now am filled to the brim. True love is like the love of a mother for her children… nothing will pull her from them.

     I think I learned true love from my mother. There is no way to describe her feelings for me other than that. In her eyes I was king. I surely was not a king and have made many mistakes, but mom didn’t care, she loved me anyway. I know that she went to her grave loving her children. I thank God for love like that and for knowing what it feels like.

     In my treasured things, there is a card that arrived in my mailbox a few days after my mother died. It basically just says, “I love you .. Love Mom” She cared enough to get the last word in … yep, that was my mom and that surely is ………… True Love 😮
