“Pets are humanizing. They remind us we have an obligation and responsibility to preserve and nurture and care for all life.” James Cromwell
For this week’s photo challenge on Security, I thought to feature our family cat too. UPDATE: I wrote this post on my smart phone and the limitations were a bit glaring. Even though there is a better way to write and post from a phone, I didn’t use the usual feature, but instead, I wrote and posted via my phone and I’m glad it wasn’t a disaster. Just like our pets need our attention to feel a sense of security, we develop habits and patterns of living that become second nature until that security blanket is pulled away. When that happens, we have to learn to be flexible, safe and go with the flow.
“I wish people would realize that animals are totally dependent on us, helpless, like children, a trust that is put on us.” James Herriot
This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Daily Post: SECURITY – This week, Share a photo that depicts your interpretation of “security.” It could be your kids happily reading under their favorite throw blanket. It could be a roaring fire chasing away the last of winter’s cold. It could be a worry stone you keep in your pocket or that favorite tee shirt that makes you feel awesome every time you put it on. Looking forward to seeing your creative interpretations of this theme!
Positive Motivation Tip: Observe the world around you and recognize how it impacts your life.
