I would like to take a moment to reiterate from last year, my list (in no particular order) of the Top 10 Things I've Learned From My Husky "Kids" that I feel has made me a better human:
- I’ve learned how to enjoy the more simpler things in life: the touch of a breeze, a beam of sunlight stretching across the deck, a butterfly as it flutters by, the feel of raindrops tapping my face, the smell of blooming flowers, the coolness of grass, the sound of fresh snow crunching under foot, and the taste of quietly falling snowflakes.
- I appreciate food (even more so than before).
- I am reminded how wonderful snuggling together can be.
- I’ve learned how to be a kid again and play. Topping my list are running in the yard, splashing in mud puddles, running through a sprinkler, playing Sibe football, engaging in an enthusiastic game of Slide the Sibe (between the Hu-parent’s legs), and Fetch.
- I’ve learned how to naturally de-stress: hanging out and relaxing with my daughter and with a Sibe under each hand, each leg, and one across my lap at the end of a long day (or anytime) is pure bliss and the best way to unwind.
- I totally understand the meaning of trust and undying loyalty.
- I’ve learned even more about the meaning of patience and unconditional love.
- I’ve learned a new language, Siberian Husky-ease, that I love to listen to, and occasionally speak.
- I appreciate all things music – including the various octaves of the Sibes howling their hauntingly beautiful wolfsongs.
- I totally appreciate Husky hugs and kisses for the priceless gems they are.
It is Love that Changes the Human Condition.
It is the Love of one Human that can
It is that Love which empowers one Nation,
