Feeling a Little Vulnerable

OK – I’m feeling a lot vulnerable and really blessed today.  Why vulnerable?   Yesterday Hubby called to ask me if I had come home for lunch – I guess he was hoping I had pulled the TV out from the wall and left it blaring.  Nope. Not me.  Turns out it was some not-so-nice people who kicked in the door and broke into our house. 


Why blessed?  Of course the first question I asked Hubby was if our sweet little dog was OK.  She was.  Stuff is stuff and can always be replaced. But not a pet.  I alway knew how important she is in my life, but this experience reinforced my compassion and love for her.  If anyone harmed her I would be angry and devestated beyond words. Also, turns out something – maybe our pooch – scared them away and they left empty-handed.  Could have been much worse than it was. Yes, Hubby and I feel blessed.

So, one boarded up door and a day later I just wanted to say – hug your pet today. Animals are an important part of our lives. They bring joy. They feel happiness, pain, fear and love just like we do.  Even the animals who aren’t “pets”. That’s just one of the many reasons why I don’t eat them.

    What a gorgeous dog. That is what I would worry about as well, my 4 babies, my 3 dogs and my Maine Coon cat. I have been going back and pouring over your wonderful blog, Janie. You will turn me into a vegan yet–just so many ingredients are intimidating to me. But you are right in that even well treated animals are ultimately slaughtered. Not making me happy.

      Thanks Marcy. We just lost her in September and hubby and I are still heartbroken. Our home is very quiet without her. Sounds like you have a fun house full of fur babies! Glad you enjoy the blog. There are some easy recipes in there too. Try the cookie dough balls – only a few ingredients and super easy for a quick (and kinda healthy) treat!
