Animal Message of the Day

From Jose:

“I am an old man now. When you get to be old, you realize that there is a certain wisdom that comes with that. It’s a wisdom I didn’t have when I was younger. I still feel young at heart. But there is something sensationally exquisite about savoring the knowledge that I’ve gained. I watch some of the younger ones here carelessly living their lives as if they have 15 lives to live yet. Sooner or later in life, you learn to appreciate the most simple of things as being total blessings in your life. Not a day goes by that I do not feel gratitude. It can be for a cloud on a hot day that offers a few minutes of shade. It can be a patch of grass that tastes so good in that moment. It can be my horse friend who comes and stands by me so that I don’t feel alone. Here is my advice to you: Live your life in harmony with your heart. Allow yourself time to give thanks. Help others by being kind. Let joy fill you up. And know that when you are down, it will get better. It always does. Even when it feels like it won’t. If you do these things, when you are old like me, you won’t have any regrets and you will have so much to be thankful for. In time….. gratitude is ours to find and spread to others.”
