I like to feel I am where I should be in my life, in terms of my accomplishments as well as my goals for the future. It is a blessing to have accomplished those things in a lifetime. However, perhaps it is an ideal, an ideal against which to measure yourself but one which you never can obtain. Unfortunately, there are people in our lives who may or may not support you in these endeavors, and they can make an enormous difference on what you can or cannot accomplished. Oftentimes, there may be circumstances that prevent you from accomplishing your cherished dreams, and you somehow have to accommodate that disappointment, too. Regardless of these accomplishments or lack thereof, you have to go on, or if you cannot go on, you have to find the road around your pain so you can arrive at the best place for you to be.
We love our spouses and adore our children. For the many lucky ones, we have our beloved borzoi, a most unexpected prize and blessing. Let their love give you the strength you need when you feel they have failed you, on your darkest day and longest night. Hold their head in your hands and gaze into their eyes and they will give you the greatest of comfort for the asking. They want us to be happy so we can fill their lives with love. They only ask for our love in return. When everything in my life failed and I was most alone, I had borzoi love and survived.
