We’ll be dog sitting this weekend because our daughter and son-in-law are traveling to attend a wedding. Their dogs are always so excited when they come here, running all around and wagging their tails. My husband often says that we can learn a lot from dogs about just being happy in the moment.

Word-art that says "Happiness is a journey, not a destination."
