May 5 – Transformation – Sentient Beings

“Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.” ~e.e. cummings

Every gender and each sentient being on this earth can be altered with affection, attention, resolve and tenderness. Time, ability, money and most importantly, attention – invested in our potential – transforms us.

Cindi (short for Cinderella), our rescue dog, didn’t bark for the first month. We assumed she didn’t speak or had no vocal cords. She was wary, demure and hid in her crate under blankets. Like the fairy tale, our Cindi bloomed from frightened ragamuffin in a corner to a magically transformed jewel. With time, her eager propensity to please and our adoration turned her into a grateful, endearing companion and a blessing. With encouragement and security, she has learned to express herself. She freely barks, begs, whines and sighs. 

Given reassurance, we develop into our best, most authentic selves. And, none of us is an island. Valuable helpers serendipitously enter our lives. It proves to be a win-win scenario.
