Yesterday, I had a friend come over and bring her sister, who I did not know. We visited and I showed her around my home and garden, and felt like I had met another friend immediately. She has a dog, Archie, who looks a lot like Reggie. He was a found dog also, who just happened to be named Reggie before she changed his name. Coincidences?! People friends and animal friends make life wonderful.
I find friendship with almost everyone I meet, whether through a friend, at the line in the grocery story, waiting to fill my tank at the gas station, or neighbors driving by. Friends call and talk with me and I feel fulfilled and immensely joyful. My love wraps around each person, each new or old friend, even each perceived disliked person, and all unknown friends waiting to be met.
Reggie is like that too; he loves everyone unless they are a danger to me, which is rare. Every person is his friend and he jumps up on their legs, shines his little face up, and licks their hand, if they allow it. When we walk by houses with other dogs greeting us, I say “Good Morning, Loveys,” as I want to acknowledge our 4-legged friends. Friends and more friends, filling each of us with such comfort and joy. We are so grateful. Nancy and Reggie♥
