Stress and Pets

Today. Sucked. Work has been stressful and intense all week, but today was the cherry on top. Lots of challenging matters. All day long. As the email poured in, so did the problems. Sigh.

Pets are good for relieving stress. One minute you are sitting there just off of yet another phone call feeling the weight of everything you have to do on your shoulders and then suddenly there is this little furry body standing next to you. Two white paws reaching up to your desk, eyes looking at you, purring, willing you to pick them up. And you hug them and pet them and they purr. You bury your face in their fur and they just keep purring away. Pure love. And suddenly you don't feel as stressed about everything and you don't care as much about that other junk. Grateful.
