Heart Vs. Brain

I just got home from a three hour stop at the emergency room. My husband and I were just returning from dinner when I saw my neighbor's dog attack a little dog walking on a leash with her owner. After the dogs were separated, I was feeling so badly for the little dog that I reached out to console her. She bit me on the finger. It was totally my fault. I know better than to try to touch an upset animal.

My injury is minimal but because of my diabetes and chronic renal failure, infections have to be avoided. Plus I needed a tetnus shot.

So what happened? Once again, I listened to my heart and not my brain. My heart said to console that poor little dog and my brain said to never to reach for an upset animal. When I told my neighbors that, they assured me that listening to the heart instead of the brain is what makes us human.

Funny. It just makes me feel stupid.

When you deal with yourself, use your head.

Nice blog and certainly a delight to visit your cyber home.
