We all love the comforts of home. Just saying the word ‘comfort’ brings images to our minds. Comfort causes us to breathe in a fresh breath of peace. Ahhhh, I sense it already.
I visited a friend at her gorgeous home, recently. Definitely a home furnished with comfort. The comforts we all scream for and complain when we don’t have.
Oh how we take so much for granted:
the fact that we even have a home and a roof over our head
perfect temperatures through A/C and heating elements
beds — cozy comforter beds
and the perfect pillows
We need these comforts and we get strangely cranky when we don’t have them.
I enjoyed our visit as her home was warm and inviting.
I felt so welcomed except by her little Chihuahua. I don’t think he too much cared for me. Probably because I was a stranger in his home.
Our visit took us to talking about those less fortunate and how we could help. I could have talked on for hours as my heart pounded, “Yes, yes, yes.” But as we said our good-bye’s, that cute little Chihuahua barked even louder. I could feel the love — not. :)
As I walked out, my friend reflectingly says,
“You know, even my dog lives in comfort. He never misses a meal and has plenty.”
I left with my mind spinning around the fact that even our pets have more than most people world wide.
Something about that just sounds wrong!
What if we all treated one person — just one person — as well as we treat our pets? Made sure they had plenty, were groomed, cared for and loved.
WOW — what a different world this would be!
