My Love for CoCo

February 17, 2012 was a good day for me.  It was new beginnings all around.  I was in a new town, around new people and above all my loneliness was replaced by excitement over a beautiful brown lab named CoCo.  Being a city girl and not used to the country lifestyle, CoCo has helped to mellow me out.  Hard from the streets not knowing how to or even wanting to love, CoCo has shown me both how to love and want to love.  My days are brighter, because of CoCo and God’s love.  Now I can freely love others and accept their love in return.  City girl gone country who would ever believe that?  I don’t some days but I’m grateful for my CoCo.
