The Lucky Dogs.
Each day, when I walk through that Lucky Dog door... I'm home. In all honesty, there's no other place I'd rather be. And every single morning, I'm showered with love... just for showing up.
Every. Single. Day.
In their eyes, I can do no wrong. No matter what happens that day --or any day-- I never disappoint them. I could screw-up a million times an hour... and I'd still be their hero. The entire world could hate me... and I'd still have their love.
Maybe my job isn't always easy, but here's why it's awesome...
I can fall down while walking, and say f*** while I'm falling. I can mess-up my words, or just choose to quit talking. I can laugh for no reason, or give reasons for laughing. I can cry like a baby, or get pissed at distractions.
I can sing; I can dance; I can act like an idiot. I can fall on my ass, and they don't even give a s***. I can make a huge mess; I can be a disgrace. I can try to look cool, or have dirt on my face.
I can tell stupid jokes; they think I'm hilarious. I can cuss like a sailor; they don't take me serious. I can look like pure crap; they claim I'm a model. I can need a stiff drink; they'll pass me the bottle.
I can run; I can play; I can be such a moron. I can throw like a girl, and they'll tell me I'm awesome. I can roll in the mud, or wear a cute dress. I can have bad ideas, they'll say "So genius!"
I can feel way too-fat, and they'll tell me I'm skinny. I can look way too-skinny, and they'll tell me I'm pretty. I can go without makeup; they'll say, "You don't need it." I can wear crappy clothes, and they actually prefer it.
I can cry; I can scream; I can hate every person. I can think I'm so worthless, and they promise, "You're worth it." I can make huge mistakes, and they never once judge. I can feel so alone, and they say, "You have us."
*****You know them as... the Lucky Dogs. And that's just what they are. But have no doubt: on any given day... the luckiest one here... is me.
You get one life. That's it. Always follow your heart. I did.
