In life, nothing is free.
Take my home for an example.
My home was immaculate before Princess Fufu, my furry white Pekingese found me.
After Princess Fufu entered my household, my home has never been the same. Her white hairs began to linger on the doors, windows, books, plants, flowers, her toys, beds, and her “dining sets.”
My husband declared: “We do now live in Princess Fufu’s home.”
Recently, during the San Diego wildfires, we removed all of Fufu’s belongings to clean, and packed them ready, in case there was an evacuation.
As soon as her belongings had been removed, amazingly, we had gained many open spaces we had forgotten about.
I felt our home had regained its neatness, and orderly appearance however, this time, it felt lonely, and lifeless.
Prior to Fufu arriving to live with us, we entertained frequently in our home.
After Fufu joined our family, we can only count the number of fingers in one hand of how many times we have had guests in our home.
But you know what, I am glad Fufu became a part of our lives, including new additions of “Be” and “Xi Muoi”, a husband and wife team of The Rabbits.
Yes, we have learned that in life, nothing is free. We had to give up our personal spaces, and social entertainment in our home in return for the Love and nature of our furry friends: “Fufu, Xi Muoi and Be.”
I was inspired to this story after my recent talk about Feng Shui in Orange County, Yin and Yang; give and take.
Nothing is free, we lose some to gain some. That’s life!
