Love it

This is one of the  neatest stories you will ever hear. You will know precisely  what this little girl is talking about at the end (you’ll want  to share this one with your loved ones and friends)!  

Keeps repeating it  over and over again. We’ve been back to this animal shelter at  least five times. It has been weeks now since we started all  of this,’ the mother told the volunteer.  

‘What is it  she keeps asking for?’ the volunteer asked.
‘Puppy size!’  replied the mother  

‘Well, we have plenty of puppies, if  that’s what she’s looking for..’ ‘I know..... We have seen  most of them, ’ the mom said in frustration...    

Just then Danielle came walking into the office  

‘Well, did you find one?’ asked her mom.  

‘No,  not this time,’ Danielle said with sadness in her voice. ‘Can  we come back on the weekend?’  

The two women looked at each other,  shook their heads and laughed  

‘You never know when we  will get more dogs. Unfortunately, there’s always a supply,’  the volunteer said.  

Danielle took her mother by the  hand and headed to the door. ‘Don’t worry, I’ll find one this  weekend,’ she said.  

Over the next few days both Mom  and Dad had long conversations with her. They both felt she  was being too particular. ‘It’s this weekend or we‘re not  looking any more,’ Dad finally said in frustration.  

‘We don’t want to hear anything more  about puppy size, either,’ Mom added.  

Sure  enough, they were the first ones in the shelter on Saturday  morning . By now Danielle knew her way around, so she ran  right for the section that housed the smaller dogs.  

Tired of the routine, mom sat in the small waiting  room at the end of the first row of cages. There was an  observation window so you could see the animals during times  when Visitors weren’t permitted.  

Danielle walked slowly from cage to  cage, kneeling periodically to take a closer look.. One by one  the dogs were brought out and she held each one.  

One by  one she said, ‘Sorry, but you‘re not the one.’  

It was  the last cage on this last day in search of the perfect pup.  The volunteer opened the cage door and the child carefully  picked up the dog and held it closely. This time she took a  little longer.  

‘Mom, that’s it! I found the right  puppy! He’s the one! I know it!’ She screamed with joy. ‘It’s  the puppy size!’  

‘But it’s the same size as all the  other puppies you held over the last few weeks,’ Mom said.  

‘No not size... The sighs. When I held him in my arms,  he sighed,’ she said.  

‘Don’t you remember? When I  asked you one day what love is, you told me love depends on  the sighs of your heart. The more you love, the bigger the  sigh!’  

The two women looked at each other for a  moment. Mom didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. As she  stooped down to hug the child, she did a little of  both.

‘Mom, every time you hold me, I sigh. When you  and Daddy come home from work and hug each other, you both  sigh. I knew I would find the right puppy if it sighed when I  held it in my arms,’ she said. Then, holding the puppy up  close to her face, she said, ‘Mom, he loves me. I heard the  sighs of his heart!’

Close your eyes for a moment and  think about the love that
Makes you sigh. I not only find  it in the arms of my loved ones, but in the caress of a  sunset, the kiss of the moonlight and the gentle brush of cool  air on a hot day..  

They are the sighs of God. Take the  time to stop and listen; you will be surprised at what you  hear. ‘Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the  moments that take Our breath  away.’

I hope your life is filled with  Sighs!!!

Appreciate every single thing you have,  especially your friends! Life is too short and friends are too  few.  

Life  is  too short to wake up with regrets.
Love the people  who treat you right and forget about the ones who  don’t.  

Love it
