Peace on 9/11 and a thank you note

September 11, 2011

Wishing for a peaceful 9/11 around the world.

We got some great thank you cards in the mail this past week, some from ones we saved and one from a dog we couldn't do anything more for. One included a copy of this poem:

When I Got My New Dog

I asked for strength that I might rear her perfectly;
I was given weakness that I might feed her more treats.

I asked for good health that I might rest easy;
I was given a "special needs" dog that I might know nurturing.

I asked for an obedient dog that I might feel proud;
I was given stubbornness that I might feel humble.

I asked for compliance that I might feel masterful;
I was given a clown that I might laugh.

I asked for a companion that I might not feel lonely;
I was given a best friend that I would feel loved.

I got nothing I asked for,
But got everything that I needed.
