Mornings like this.
On mornings like this, Oooj sleeps with one paw on his bone – guarding it from Cleo who he thinks is after it. (He’s one smart dog.) She’s over in the corner of the room, just sitting there, staring at him with a look on her face that is oh-so-smug. (She’s one cliché cat.) I love these two, together. Like peanut butter & jelly, it’s not complete if they’re not together. Like an old couple who’s been together for longer than they can even remember, and long enough that their bickering has become ‘cute.’
I love these two, the ways they look after each other. Like when Cleo waits by the back door, staring through the window to watch Oooj outside, and then will meow to let me know when he’s standing at the door and waiting to come back inside. Or when Oooj jumps out of bed in the morning and runs to Cleo when she meows. He wags his tail and licks her face, like he hasn’t seen her in days.
I love these two.
Today I am grateful for the bond and closeness that Oooj and Cleo share. I’m grateful that they have each other, and that they really do look out for the other. Our Babes. My grateful heart.
PS- In need of a boost today? Here are ‘20 Signs You’re Doing Better Than You Think You Are‘ by Brianna Wiest. Christian read this aloud to me yesterday and I knew immediately I’d be sharing it with you all today. Such great reminders and if you are able to check even ONE thing off? You’re doing good 😉
