Reflection #3 : Enlist a Partner

“Friendship is essentially a partnership.” –Aristotle03-anonymous-kindness

Partnerships abound, some of which we may not even recognize (until they are pointed out).

Consider the anonymous kindness provided to a 4 year-old girl named Meredith who was experiencing the loss of a beloved family dog, Abbey, one that had been present throughout her life. Believing in a higher being, she wrote a letter to God in order to make sure God recognized the arrival of Abbey in heaven. She stamped the letter and, with her mom’s help, dropped the letter in a mailbox. A couple of weeks later, the family arrived home to find a package on their porch. Someone in the post office had provided Meredith with an answer. Read all about the story at this link.

I invite you to take a look at another inspiring partnership, that of Bella and Tarra. Believe me, it’s worth the 3 minutes it will take you to watch the video. And if you appreciate the transparency and genuineness of animals, you’ll be all the more pleased you took the time.
