Animals are reliable, many full of love,
true in their affections, predictable
in their actions, grateful and loyal;
difficult standards for people to live up to.

~ Alfred A. Montapert

It is very cold outside today.  The ground is covered with snow, and yet as I look out, there are beautiful birds nibbling at my bird feeder. They are just flying about in all their glory, dining on the food I have put out.  People need to act more like animals, to accept what is and find the glory and beauty in it.

Many emails I receive begin with how awful the weather is and go on talking about all the changes one has to make because of the weather.  I say, God bless the weather and the animals.  Sure, they have accidents in the house, but they weren’t supposed to be kept in houses.  They are animals, so I forgive them.

Animals accept what is and make the best of it.

Act like an animal!
