Right now, you may be thinking, “I feel fine,” as you muddle through the slog of life eight days a week. Perhaps you’re just watching time pass you by, marking the calendar with dates set by the taxman. Conversely, imagine getting the warm fuzzies everyday after looking down at a ball of floof and thinking, “I want to hold your hand”…err, paw. In that case, put yesterday in the rearview and consider this your metaphorical ticket to ride to your local animal rescue organization.

As you hear the pitter-patter of their paws approaching your doorway, you can’t help but to smile and whisper to yourself, “Here comes the sun.”

And, with that, we’ll once more echo in things we said today: “The End.”
