We have this wonderful ball of chaotic energy running through our lives. She has been with us for such a short time and already she is teaching us rather than us teaching her. Stella Rae is reminding us to be patient. Patience is something we tend to let go and forget that it is something we all want for ourselves so we really must practice it for others. She is reminding us to be kind. Showing kindness is something that we should just do, but sometimes have a hard time actually doing. Kindness opens the door for someone else to have a better day. She is reminding us to be forgiving. Everyone makes mistakes. We would want forgiveness for some mistake of our own so we really must remember to forgive someone else. Here I thought this little spirit was going to be just a puppy added to our family. Really, she is a gift. A gift that I am already so grateful for and am discovering may just show me what I need to rediscover in myself.
