We have had such great weather this week with near-record breaking temperatures. It has felt more like August than mid-May. Great time to get the flowers out on the deck, set up the bird spa, and plant the little herb garden. The grosbeaks have traveled on and we are waiting for more of our migrants, most of whom are a little later this year.
Lucy has been to the park almost every morning and just loves it. Occasionally there is another dog or two and she runs and runs. She runs and runs even if there is not another dog. Times like these are when we miss Ellie even more than usual.
Lucy enjoys the deck, but is not much for posing
She snoozes happily in the den after a morning run
She really hates being left inside when we are outside.
She stood at the window the entire time it took my husband to set up the fountain.
I often get frustrated with the wrongs in the world. And then I recall a quote I heard as a child. It is attributed to several different people, most commonly Helen Keller:
I am only one, but still I am one.
I cannot do everything but still I can do something;
And because I cannot do everything,
I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.
We all know our abilities and resources are finite. But that must not stop us from doing the somethings that we can do. We are all on this planet together and if each of us does what we can, it will make for a better world.
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL MOTHERS
AND HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND
DO THE SOMETHING YOU CAN
