I was feeling utterly horrible today, I mean really bad. It's a bad anniversary coming up and the time caught me off guard. I went out back for a smoke to calm down and stop crying and my dog was pestering me to thow this little squeaky toy can she has. I gave in and threw it and as she charged across the garden she came back for me to throw it again. Ten minutes later, after wrestling, dancing and playing with the dog I was smiling. She was such good company and it touched my heart. It's a strange thing to get lifted by, hence the title of my thread! What strange things have lifted you up/do lift you up?
