I had coffee with a girlfriend yesterday who I haven’t seen in quite some time. I was talking about Andy, and she commented on how I used to always be ‘Dogs dogs dogs!’ but now I seem to be all about cats as well.
My response was that I used to think that one had to love dogs and cats in the same way, but I came to realize after getting Andy that it is a different kind of love. Once that realization happened, I became much more a cat person, as well as being a dog person.
It seems like such a simple concept – after all, we do not expect to love a spouse in the same way we love a parent, for example – but it had never really occurred to me before.
Anyone else had any eye-opening moments this week?
