My first time back at Carrot Ranch. I’m still collecting myself in the New Year and what a way to start but by writing about enrichment.
Enrichment probably means different things to different people. For me, it means growing as a person, finding the things that are important. Hopefully this story imparts that.

Sara thought she was good.
She gave to charity, volunteered at soup kitchens, and walked dogs at the shelter. She belonged to a group who sang at hospices and nursing homes.
But two weeks with her prospective brother-in-law taught her maybe she wasn’t that good. After hearing his opinions on gays, tattoos, Asians, she thought she might throttle him until he begged for mercy.
Rather than attending the brewery event with her fiancé, she went to the vets. There she whispered endearments to the dogs and cats in the ICU. She welcomed kisses and purrs. The world spun right.
