Are You Happy To See Me

dogs photo, writing about dogs, unconditional love, dogs quotes, dogs are family

A friend comes home unnoticed. Her teenage son is busy with his mobile legend while her daughter doesn’t even know she’s home. In jest, I told her “Get a puppy, or dogs. At least you’ll be comforted that there is someone who is always happy to see you.”

I don’t know why I said that.  I’m too insensitive I guess.  Truthfully, no matter what, there will always be someone who will need you, love you, or want you. It doesn’t matter in what order. And as time goes by, every passing year, the order changes, for humans I think.

I just can’t think of a right graphic for that quote, so I used my dogs. After all, there is no better way to express unconditional love than citing a dog’s love.  Well, just next to my  mom’s love of course.  Hey, I’m not saying my dogs are at par with her. Neither am I implying that I give more time to my dogs than her.  And I know I’m guilty because I always give my dogs a treat every time I arrived home. My mom seldom receive anything from me when I see her.  Inspite of that, I know she will always be someone who is happy to see me (just like them too) 🙂

            1. oo nga. Ok lang umulan, we need rain basta huwag lang sobra sobra. (Yes, it’s okay, we need rain as long as it’s not too much.)

              I remember during my grade school days, gusto ko always umuulan para walang pasok ( I remember during my grade school days, I always wish for the rain because there are no classes. )

              kasi ang sarap matulog pag umuulan. (because it is yummy, oops, it is relaxing to sleep while it is raining.) 🙂

  1. Hey Joel, I’m finally back blogging and will admit, I wondered how many of my blogging friends I would see on the fly. Oddly enough, you came to mind last week and on exploring the blogosphere now, I’m delighted to see this post and I guess, I AM happy to see you. How are you and after my ramble, I’m now wondering if you even remember me. Not to worry – stopping by to say ‘hello’ and state that this post hits the nail on the head, so to speak. 👋🏻

    1. Thank you Melba. Your words made my day. Thanks for letting me know. I hope everything will soon be okay with them. Although I know, it takes time, really a lot of time to heal the pain. Thanks too for being here all this time. I appreciate it.
