Duff here. Mom and I stopped at the Gas Station, and She went inside to make a pre-Payment. The Clerk behind the counter was Laughing very hard. So Mom asked Her what was so Funny. The Clerk pointed to Me, and said, “Look at Your Dog.” There I was, locked in the Jeep, barking ferociously. In Doggy Language, I was telling Her, “You always leave Me. You never come back. I will be Here forever.” And so On. Not living unstuck.
Mom then said, “Watch this” as She went back outside to put gas in the Car. I was Overjoyed. “You came back!” Jubilant that She Had returned. Ecstatic. Jumping from the Front Seat to the Back. Celebrating all the Way. But when Mom left to get Her change? Desolation once again. But all was well as She got back. Mom waved as We drove off. It’s complicated, but It works for Me. Living unstuck.
How about You? Do You feel Heartbroken when Someone leaves? Then absolutely delighted when They return? I say: It’s a measure of Unconditional Love. Even if You have a Little bit of Loving, I’d show It. Sure does Brighten the day. I know that for a Fact. Living unstuck. #unstuck-living#caring
The dog lives for the day, the hour, even the moment.

I do love My Mom.
