FROM THE PRINCIPAL...TONY WHITE
Give Everyone a Warm Greeting that Shows Them How Much You Care: Bella greeted EVERYONE at our front door, and didn't let them past the threshold without giving her a proper greeting as well. You never know what kind of day someone is having, and taking the time to show love and give attention can really go a long way in brightening up someone's day.
Make Everyone Happy Just Being Yourself: Bella wasn't one of those dogs who went viral for calling 911 saving someone's life in the process. But, she saved our lives just being her sweet, silly, beautiful, loving self. Whether it was a snuggle, nuzzle, hug, kiss, gaze, walking alongside you, or playing with you, these small acts she performed so naturally throughout everyday certainly made our lives better and after a rough day here and there, felt like she saved them. Just being who you are in all of that beautiful simplicity is all that's needed. The old adage that most of us life is just about showing up could not be more evident here. Whether she was the focal point of the picture or not, she is in more of our pictures than not. Find ways to get yourself in more photographs, my friends.
Never Pass Up an Opportunity to Enjoy Your People...and a Good Meal: You'll never regret quality time with your favorite people...no matter what you have on your to-do list. Whatever happens to be on that to-do list, make sure this one's on top.
Take these lessons to heart, Norton Creek. In 2021, life feels complicated and moves really quickly, but it doesn't have to be - not if we take the dog's path. Have a wonderful weekend making memories with your favorite people (two-legged, four-legged, winged, finned, scaly, furry, or feathered!)!
