Katie Montaung blogs at Heading Home. She is host to Five Minute Friday where she gives us a prompt word, and we write about it for five minutes. Today's word is-
The first thing that comes to mind when I see this word is a dog. Now don't get me wrong or feel sorry for me, I have many human friends who epitomize the word loyal and I would hope that they think the same of me. But really now, all of you dog-lovers out there know this; one cannot find more loyalty than in the unconditional, joyous, tail-wagging, sloppy-kissed greeting from your dog every single time you return home. No matter how long you were gone, no matter if you are exuberant or down-in-the-dumps, no matter if you have treats or not, your dog will make you feel like the most popular person on the planet. They don't care if you are fat or thin, rich or poor, yellow or red. They simply love you for existing in their world. They never judge. We like to think we don't either, but it's human nature that has thoughts about others slipping unconsciously like a lightening bolt into our thoughts before we can stop them. Dogs will protect you with a fierce loyalty, giving their life for you if necessary.
I think God had the most fun creating them, knowing what a great gift He was giving us.
