Crowded with Love

    My home got a bit more crowded this week as we added four more beloved pets to it. That brings the grand total of my tiny home to an amazing nineteen. That includes five people, four dogs, two cats, two fish, a turtle, two cockatiels, two parakeets, and a ferret. I am still not sure about how we ended up with so many animals to love in our small home. Perhaps it is because no matter how tiny our house is our hearts always feel big enough to make room for one more.

    That is the way love works. The more love you give to others, the more love grows in your heart and soul. And the more love you have within yourself, the more you want to share it with the world. It is a glorious, lifelong journey that you make in this life and take on to the next. It is filled with millions of hugs, kisses, smiles, laughs, tender animal touches, kind words, and little acts of love. As William Wordsworth once said, "The best portion of a good man�s life is his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love."

    May you always live from the love within your heart and the joy within your soul then. May you always give that love and joy freely and happily to all who need it. May your heart always feel big enough to love one more person, one more animal, or one more thing. May your life be filled everyday with little acts of kindness and of love. May your heart, soul, and mind find love and joy everywhere and leave them wherever you go.

    God gives each of us two wonderful gifts called life and love. When you open one, you open the other. To live is to love and to love is to live. May you embrace both gifts and share them always no matter how crowded your home or hectic your day gets. There is no greater gift that you can give to God than to use the gifts He gives to you.
