Thank you for joining me for my fifth installment of my word of the week. Remember if you choose to do a post about the word of the week, let me know. I really enjoy reading them.
This week's word of the week is ~Loyalty~.
When I think about the word loyalty several different ideas come to mind. We are loyal to our friends even when we think they are wrong. We stand beside them and support them in their decisions and we are there for them if things fall apart.
We are loyal to our jobs. We try to do our best even when everything we do seems wrong. We strive to do the best job we can and we give 100% all the time even when we do not feel appreciated.
We are loyal to our partners through the good and the bad. Through the agreements and disagreements. We love them unconditionally and support them in what they do and dream of. We remain faithful to them through all things and never stop loving them.
We are loyal to our families. Every family disagrees or has issues, but we stand together and look out for one another. We choose to put our petty differences aside and realize that we are a family and know that together we can achieve anything.
We are loyal to our pets and they are even more loyal to us. Even when we have to spank them because they are chewing on a new rug...I am not mentioning any names...LOL! They love us completely and would fight to the death to protect us and their home. All they want in return is a little love. I think dogs are the true definition of loyalty.
I am blessed to have four examples of loyalty in my everyday life. Every night when I come home there are always four precious souls happy to see me and will do everything in their power to make me happy when I am sad, strong when I am weak, and loved when I feel unlovable. I can never thank God enough for bringing them into my life. They are precious and beautiful in every way possible. They are...
and Paycee...the little rug chewer
