When I was five years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life. John Lennon
Direction is my ‘word of the week’ … I have been moving [sometimes quite slowly] in a new live direction. Never quite certain [as there are so many paths I would love to experience] which way I am going. I have been [so] loving the newness of my life here lately. Meditating more, spending more time doing what I want to do … It is strange to live alone [lovely strange] … well, of course I have the pups and Karma … but this is the first time in a gazillion years I have lived alone. Even after my personal kids spread their wings and left the nest, there were always school kids spending many days/nights here. It feels like I am reacquainting myself with myself. If that makes sense???
This stone/rock that I have had for many years, has been having new meaning lately. The word on one side, and the labyrinth on the other. Love it
Monday has always been my fav day of the week … and lately, even more so. Working at the food bank is definitely a highlight of the week. It is emotional, sometimes, though feeling like you are helping others – if even for just a bit – makes the spirit smile.
Puppy training is going well with Dodge. She is less skittish, seems to enjoy being with humans now, and not even one accident in the home. She is still very leery of the leash business … we practice every day for a few minutes. She is walking for a few minutes before digging her heels in and stopping. She makes me smile. Life is so good. She is a delight … I am not too sure how she will react when she is ‘an only pup’, when Taylor and Caleb take Lewis and Nora back with them.
What else? … I am finding it a challenge to take time to write … even though I so love it. And, do love staying in touch with my babbling. Tonight – my only TV night – Dancing with the Stars … so I must go and get ready to watch what I wish I could do … I hope everyone is having a beautiful start to a wonderful week.
Oh … Scrabble on the IPAD is taking up much of my time … addicted … I haven’t read a book in days. Crazy … so much fun.
