Monday Moments: Acceptance
No, I haven’t been holding out on you. I don’t have a dog. This cute nose and the canine attached to it, a lab named Selkie, belongs to Erika Gardner. I spent a weekend with Erika and her family, and Selkie decided to visit me one morning. If I hadn’t already been awake, I wouldn’t have known she was there at all. Erika is a gracious hostess, but I think Selkie is her secret weapon. Something about having a dog waiting patiently for you to wake up, its nose resting on the end of your bed, is the ultimate way to make someone feel at home.
Someday, if I spend enough time around Erika and Selkie, I hope I can make people feel this loved and accepted, too.
