Here’s to all the mothers out there. Something about having a child brings out the best in some of us. And not just in humans but animals as well.
My dad told me a story about his dog Boots who was getting on in years. Her step was slower and her eyes dimming with age but when she had that last litter, she was like a pup again. She had more energy and her eyes seemed to clear as she took care of her litter. For a short time the sparkle returned to her life.
That nurturing instinct runs deep in our veins and shows us how connected we all are.
I hope you enjoyed this heart-touching Youtube video clip. I thought it was perfect for today.
Happy Mother’s Day.
