We sit outside with them in the evenings and no one is interested in running and playing. They just enjoy walking around the yard.
There are always really good smells by the walk.
Even fireball Lucy is not running around.
Ellie jumps on a chair to look over the yard. Often I will sit on the bench and she will climb up, lie beside me and put her head in my lap. She really would love to be a lap dog.
She sits and thinks in the evening shadows. Does anyone besides me wonder what the dogs are thinking?
This week has brought even more disastrous weather across our country. I look at the videos and cannot imagine the horror the folks are going through. I have tremendous admiration for so many of our fellow citizens who speak with hope in their voices as they start the long road to recovery. We should all learn a lesson from them...that we can always have hope no matter how dire the circumstances might be.
From Harvey Milk:
The important thing is not that we can live on hope alone but that life is not worth living without it.
And from Martin Luther:
Everything that is done in the world is done by hope.
And so we must never lose hope.
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE...FULL OF HOPE FOR BETTER TOMORROWS.
