My daughter and her husband are going on vacation this weekend, leaving their dogs here. It’s always good to see how dogs enjoy simple little things, like going for a walk or taking a nap in the sun. They remind us to live in the moment and to keep it real, rather than letting our minds wander off into pointless worries about everything that isn’t perfect—which, of course, is everything.

Word-art that says "You were born to be real, not to be perfect."
