If you were to name one thing you have the most compassion for, what would it be?
That would be dogs. They are the most selfless and the most giving creatures that walked on this earth. I only know the extent of my sentiments for dogs when I had to put my own to sleep - I wept buckets uncontrollably - never so for anyone in my entire life. Now, like a friend puts it, that experience makes adopting another difficult.
It's been said that, "The best things in life are free." Do you think this is true? I used to think this is true but more so I think even among close friends and relatives, you have to deposit into each other's emotional bank (a term used by some relationship guru on The Oprah Show) in order for reciprocity to continue. Perhaps the only 2 situations I can think of is that of a relationship between a parent and child and that of a dog and its owner. The parent and the dog give love freely and sacrificially; in my opinion, in view of many dysfunctional families in our troubled times, it is more so the latter. What is the most valuable thing you own? I would want to say my previous dog, January but she has passed away. I guess that would leave me my new pad? I have splured almost my entire savings on it and would be paying for it for a long time to come.
