Love. True love

Watching CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood has become a favorite way to watch snippets of news without immersing ourselves in the 24 hour news feeds that can only lead to anxiety and subsequently, depression. It's an upbeat show that often captures the better parts of our collective nature.

If you watched the show this morning, you could not have missed the story of Tarra and Bella, an unlikely tale of the love and devotion between an elephant and a dog. I recall watching the first story about these two when Bella was injured awhile ago and Tarra stood vigil.



I'm pretty certain I'm going to have this unlikely devoted duo on my mind for quite awhile. I think we could all take a lesson from their story.

Lovely. Just a feel-good story.

We had an elephant in a zoo here who shouldn't ever have been there. After a lot of lobbying, Tina was finally released to the farm in Tennessee for a better life.

I saw that and was so moved. Many people could learn from these two.

I would have rather been home watching that this morning.

This a bitter sweet story.

Thank you for your compliments and comments on my blog. I don't know if you come back there to check for an answer. I don't have your email any more.

I did see this and I had also seen the first one. I have always had such compassion for elephants and their loving and grieving. Oh, that we could love and support one another like they do. It would definitely make the world a better place.
