While Lucy is definitely aging, she still has bursts of energy and loves to run off leash. We take her to an uncrowded park so she can run. Afterwards she is exhausted but very happy.
Waiting for the leash to come off.
Eagerly anticipating running free.
Lucy does not think about politics, or world events. She lives in the here and now and enjoys almost all of it. She has a regular schedule and like most old folks, she does not like for it to be interrupted. Sometimes when I get caught up in the world's problems, I wish I could be more like her and live in the moment and enjoy what is rather than worrying about what is not. I do try.
Today's quote comes from Emily Dickinson:
"Find ecstasy in life;
The mere sense of living is joy enough."
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND
FIND JOY IN YOUR LIFE
