So as I write tonight I am reminded about how life works. The ups the downs, the here and now, the expectation and the loss. It seems that everything has happened in a few short days to a variety of people than I know.
You never know when life is going to take a turn. The trick is to enjoy each moment, live your best life in the now. I’ve been doing just that! I’ve had a great week/weekend I am blessed beyond words. I also with my new scooter was able to go bless a few others today as well.
Time is a valuable gift. If you have a bit of time to offer to someone, it can make all of the difference in the world.
I am not going to share exactly what I did because it isn’t important that you know that. What is important that you know is that you can make a difference to someone else by offering your time to them. Time to listen, time to share, time to just be present, time to offer a hug, time to hold a hand, time to eat a meal, time to offer a favor…
You don’t need to do anything grand. Simple is sometimes the thing that warms the heart most, the thing that can offer the most hope. Life is funny and fickle.
I remember how life used to be. I was able to offer time to others. Now being blessed by a scooter, I am able to get around and bless others again as well.
Luka received a blessing today as well! He got a bath, blowout, and a nail trim. I had never taken him to this place before. Money being one issue, and I’d had a quick and not so pleasant experience myself there years before. So I’d just never thought to take him there. In fact I in my mind had said I wouldn’t. We were out at some friends home the other night and they were raving about that place, and when I called a closer place that did dog grooming, they shared that they were now only doing small dogs, but that this place did large ones.
Well, once again I am reminded to NEVER say NEVER! Because here I go yet again eating my words. It was a very wonderful experience. Luka came out sparkly clean! He really needed that! I don’t know how he had managed to get so dirty, but when your hands stink after petting him something must be done! YEEEW! I am so grateful, the gals there really did an awesome job!
We were so blessed that they had a cancelation today and could fit him in! We can’t wait to go back! Ok, I think Luka can wait.. the whole time he looked at me while they were blowing him out… he seemed to be saying.. lets go, I am clean!!! Get me away from these blowers!
He hates when I use my blow drier.. But he was a champ and made it through with very little fuss! He’s a new man!
So what have you been resistant to? Yet again I am discovering that I am usually never right, and that I need to continue to keep an open mind about things, even if I have had an experience. Sometimes good things need a second or third look!
If I judge to early, I will be the one missing out! Someday I may learn! In the mean time just keep praying for me!
