i just love animals so much

on sunday we went to the zoo!  we have a sweet zoo in our area, much like the little zoo in the movie we bought a zoo.

as an animal lover, i have mixed feelings about zoos and i go back and forth between believing we should just leave them be in their natural world and the joy and connection (and sometimes longer, healthier lives) that a zoo habitat affords.

each time i peer into a cage, i feel a deep love and respect for animals and a renewed commitment to loving and caring for our world, tinged with a sadness about their confinement.

i am awestruck at their majestic gentleness.
