Forgive. It is one simple word that comes with a world of complications for us. They say “To forgive is divine” but that doesn’t tell us how to accomplish it.
Sally somehow has mastered the art of forgiveness. She is our light that shows us a better side of the world. It might sound crazy because this is the same dog that just last week suffered abuse like no creature should.
Yet the light inside of Sally has not faded, she is as steadfast in love with us as anything. Amazing that this dog doesn’t see the negative in us as humans. She should be terrified of humans and yet she FORGIVES us for what was done.
This is one quality that I admit I do not possess. While I envy dogs and try to live by their code I can not seem to wrap my head around the concept of forgiveness.
Sally is teaching all of us there is a better way. She shows me everyday that there is a way to let go of the hate and pain she should be standing on. Sally is truly divine and I hope one day to be able we can all live like her.
Thank you Sally for being a teacher and we are all your students. - Jackie
