I really wish I could fix things for all the humans who are sick, and those who are working so hard to help those who are sick.
I wish I could help the ones who are scared, and the ones who have been working so hard to take care of those who are scared.
I wish I could snuggle with every kid and every grown up who is sad about missing so many fun things.
And I wish more than anything I could make the sickness go away forever.
But I’m just a dog. And while I can do lots of cool tricks, I can’t fix all those things.
But I can be there for my family. I can love my people. I can snuggle with them and make sure they spend time outside with me. I can sit with them if they need to cry. I can jump with them if they want to dance. And I can listen if they want to talk.
I can’t fix everything (or really anything) but I can love the people God has given me and try to help where I can.
And it seems like that’s a good place to start.
So if you could use a snuggle, just pretend I’m sitting in your lap, purring my doggie purr and ready to listen if you need to talk.
