One of my 5th grade students asked me for a week what my favorite animal was – I answered without hesitation: dogs!

Such a sweet, thoughtful gesture.

“I’m 92 and just getting started.”

Rob Bell quoting one of his audience members on Oprah’s podcast.

Bell talks about the value of wisdom and how our society is overlooking the goldmine within the elderly. Not only that, but he speaks about how focusing and caring about the “wrong things” is making us tired and aging us. It’s a great podcast. You can listen to it here.

Lessons from my dog:

Find a quiet, sunny place to sit and just enjoy!

Jump and run even if you’re so sore afterward that you can hardly walk.

Eat with gusto and no regrets.

Forgive quickly and stay faithful.

Always go for walks and smell flowers along the way.

Naps = good; stress = what’s stress?
