One of the highlights for many attending last month's Business Resource Meeting was the Inspiration given by Andrea Lenzen, a fellow 2010 Leadership Series classmate and a very active WCR-Metro STL member. In case you missed the meeting, Andrea has graciously provided a copy below:

IF A DOG WERE YOUR TEACHER (Author Unknown)
If a dog were your teacher, these are some of the lessons you might learn...
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy
When it's in your best interest, practice obedience Let others know when they've invaded your territory Take naps and stretch before rising Run romp and play daily
Thrive on attention and let people touch you Avoid biting, when a simple growl will do On warm days stop to lie on your back on the grass On hot days drink lots of water and lay under a shady tree When you're happy dance around and wag your entire body
No matter how often you're scolded, don't buy into the guilt thing and pout Run right back and make friends
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk Eat with gusto and enthusiasm Stop when you have had enough Be loyal Never pretend to be something you're not
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it When someone is having a bad day, be silent... sit close by... and nuzzle them gently.
Thank you, Andrea, for this wonderful Inspiration and for sharing Holly and Russell with us!
