Daily Inspiration: Unlikely Friends

I am an avid animal lover! I love coming home to my dog, Max. His tail wagging; his little feet pawing at my legs, his excitement and utter thrill at seeing me, and of course the kisses, always brings a smile to my face. There's nothing like that feeling of unconditional love I receive from him. Despite his excitement, something about him brings me peace.



Animals never cease to amaze me. Since they bring me such happiness, I thought it fitting to share some animal love with you for today’s daily inspiration. I hope these unlikely pairs of friends will be an example to us humans, of what can happen when we set our differences aside.

About Tamara Hoerner (1261 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
