Who or what gives you joy? You know that tingly warm feeling you get inside your heart when you feel that feeling? I know for many of us it is a pet so I thought I would give Frankie, my pound dog of 7 years from providence animal rescue league a shout out this month of love. I wasn't raised with animals and wasn't really a "dog person" but I have to say that the older Frankie gets, the more I realize how much I have learned about myself from having a pet in my life. As I write this, he is fast asleep on my lap. His breath is awful, he growls at anyone who tries to cross my path and is the eternal optimist for the possibility of food droppage but I love him. He was put into my world seriously so I could learn how to love a dog. I am really grateful for his wacky and sometimes annoying presence.
The who's in my life besides Frankie, are my wonderful son, Michael and my rockstar companion, (also named Michael). The what's in my world are cooking and writing and art. These give me crazy good vibage. What makes you warm and fuzzy? I hope your answer includes a visit to alayne white too... ( I know.. shameless plug.) We have a fun promo this month to celebrate love. So use the word LOVE and save 14% on all online gift certifcates $120 or more.
