Therapy dogs are trained to provide affection and comfort to people in hospitals, nursing homes, retirement homes, people with learning disabilities & depression. What’s best is they don’t always have to be trained.
Lilly is such a great companion and healer. She loves because she wants to not because she has to.
Puppies are a great visual inspiration. How can you not smile or laugh when you see a cute puppy. Bounding around clumsy and full of excitement. I’m thinking some good quality time with a puppy is just what Lilly & I need to get through this month 🙂
I love this. The fact that this, holding hands, such a simple action takes place still today, is beautiful. In a world where we’d rather hold our cell phone than the hand of the one we love. As cliché as it is, it still speaks volume. A simple touch, a gesture, a look, a squeeze says way more than any amount of words.
I once asked someone why they didn’t say ‘I love you’ all the time. His response, ‘After saying it all the time, after every phone call, day in and day out, it looses meaning. Wouldn’t you rather be shown than senselessly told?’
Grabbing the hand of someone you love, may just be what they need to know that everything is going to be ok. Its going to work.
This here is Mary. She is dating my younger brother Nick. Going through nursing school. Has more than an amazing personality and she’s gorgeous!
Its because of her and Nicks existence that she’s in my life.
I just wanted to take this time to thank her for being such a great friend and supporter. Your friendship and time mean more to me than you’ll ever know. Thanks for always thinking of me and being there for me. :-)!!
