Tune For Tuesday - You Are Loved

The world isn't always kind;
The world isn't always welcoming;
The world isn't always positive;
The world isn't always as we wish it would be.

On days when seeing the world as it is and not as we wish it to be gets hard for us, Diana has a few tricks to rebalance us.  We draw strength from our famly, friends, faith and the words of others who are much, much better at combining them together than us.

A rescue dog is a cast off from some other human.  Reasons for casting us aside are valid - to them.  That vailidity may not transfer to others well, if at all.  There is seemingly no end to this casting.  The energy I have to expend to recover from human decision making takes from my ability to progress and live up to my full potential.  You see, I am unfocused, severely anxious, and have health issues.  These issues are a direct result of human inattention or actual lack of care.  Some are fixable.  Some aren't.

For Diana, songs help us move forward, replenish and rebalance our focus on the hard work of barking about rescue issues.  The following song is one of our favorites.  I hope it reblances you too.


Don’t give up
It’s just the weight of the world
When your heart’s heavy
I, I will lift it for you

Don’t give up
Because you want to be heard
If silence keeps you
I, I will break it for you

Everybody wants to be understood
Well, I can hear you
Everybody wants to be loved
Don’t give up because you are loved

Don’t give up
It’s just the hurt that you hide
When you’re lost inside
I, I’ll be there to find you

Don’t give up
Because you want to burn bright
If darkness blinds you
I, I will shine to guide you

Everybody wants to be understood
Well, I can hear you
Everybody wants to be loved
Don’t give up because you are loved
You are loved

Don’t give up
It’s just the weight of the world
You are loved
