Journal for Christa—
Molly dog has been standing at the top of the stairs and barking at us all morning. Finally, as I stared up at her from the bottom of the stairs, I had a moment of understanding. She doesn’t want to walk down the stairs because they’re clean. (I just ran the carpet cleaner over them yesterday.)
Cleanliness disturbs her. She prefers her world stinky dirty. Since she stinks, I guess she thinks the rest of her world should too.
Maybe that’s why I often feel more comfortable navigating this world rather than my spiritual walk. I think it’s time to schedule an appointment for both of us with the Groomer.
