To Be Loved

This video both warmed and broke my heart. This animal, abused all its life, reacted in an inconceivable way to being petted, cared for, loved. Inconceivable, that is, to those who’ve been nurtured, caressed and protected. The puppy’s reaction was expected when you understand it’s interaction with those who hated instead of loved, abused instead of nurtured, endangered instead of protected.

There’s a wise saying; “Those who need love the most will show it in the most unlovable ways.”

Unfortunately this is often true. Those who are not used to being loved are unsure, confused, even suspicious of those who want nothing but to help and extend a hand of friendship and grace. Their reactions may shock us but the only cure for the wounds and burdens they carry is more love.
