A recent memory haunts me, in the best way possible.
The woman who inspires, encourages, and loves me celebrated a birthday a few weeks ago. We’re not kids any more, and the passage of time is bittersweet, despite the fact that the passage of years seems lost on her timeless beauty. Yes, I am completely smitten still, after all these years.
I’m also smitten with our four legged family. When I’m exhausted after a long day I look around me at these sleeping angels and imagine so many of you doing the same, and I know without question that these beautiful creatures bring out the best in us, and make the world better for their presence. I am thankful to share my life with dogs, and I endeavor to make the world a better place for them – with your help, of course.
So when the woman I adore and the dogs who she loves with abandon (and fiercely protects, I might add) share a moment, it just doesn’t get any better for this heart of mine. On her birthday my wife surrounded herself with our dogs and dug into her presents – but not before I was able to capture a perfectly timed kiss.
She loves her mother. We all do, and on this day I’m here to tell you that despite the fact that we have no children, I share a home with one of the best mothers on the planet.
Happy Mother’s day Sunshine.
