My son has taught me the most amazing things! Seeing the world through his eyes has shown me the value in slowing down to feel, touch, hear, taste, and see everything. His determination is inspiring. His way of approaching the world around him with an open mind and heart without reservation is the thing I am striving towards in my life today.

Thinking more about this.....the most VALUABLE teaching came from my dog Leo. At the age of 54 I had never experienced the feeling of love or emotionally connecting to anyone. I was laying on my bed one day with the sun coming through the window surrounded by my eskie dogs & Leo was right where he always was right next to me in his special doggie way. We had always had a special connection but that day it hit me that the feeling I had was what connecting with another being actually feels like.

In my new home far away from my past, I was meeting new kind people. I noticed I started to feel the same kind of connection I felt especially with Leo. He actually taught me what opening my heart up could feel like. He also taught me that I was capable of emotionally connecting with others & that it was those who had been around me all my life that either couldn't or put up the road blocks that had kept me from experiencing that all my life. The interesting thing is that all my growing up life I wondered if what I was feeling was really all the connection (surface level) that existed between people. It seemed that others connected but I never saw that kind of connections existing in my parents or in my marriage.

For me learning this was more valuable to my life than all the degree work I did or the work on learning my career.
One little dog did more for my life than anyone else.
