Sometimes life can throw stuff at you and you better be ready to catch it.
It could be sink or swim.
Life’s stuff have left me feeling a little frazzled..
If I let go of the things that have been weighing me down..
Things that I have magnified in my mind, things become clearer.
When I go out and “survey the property”, pay attention to details
Look beyond the obvious
pray and ask questions. i usually get my answer pretty quickly, if I just look for the signs.
My concerns and troubles are few. I am just asking for a little kindness, love and gratefulness to be given and received.
It really isn’t a very hard thing to achieve with a little effort. I have to put my name on top of the list to try harder.
As I walked the river bank, I found heart rock after heart rock. I think I found my sign!
If that wasn’t a sign enough. I had a visitor!
He walked right up to me.
My message for today…Be kind to all living things. No matter the form or fashion.
It ended up being a very good day. I am refreshed and ready for round two….
on a sadder note. Our old guy Red died in his sleep last weekend. He was in his bed surrounded by love. He showed up at our gate 15 years ago, skinny, scared and beaten up. We loved him every single day he was with us. Red was a sweet, loyal and faithful friend. We will miss him so. We were so lucky to have him in our lives…
So sorry about Red but what love you gave him!
I adore my heart rock you sent me and it has it’s place of honor tucked into my gate.
OH my goodness that an armadillo would come that close- how cool is that!!!! They are such a prehistoric throw back. I love them!
sending you hearts right back <3 <3 <3
Every day of my life all I want is to love and be loved, to give kindness and to just get it back. How I agree with you so much; simple (yet profound) things as such are all I need to keep me going.
I believe in those “signs”, in fact my next blog post hopefully will be on the subject as well. Just this past week I felt I received “signs” just in the perfect moment I needed to see them, but there is a prerequisite; we need to be looking for them.
I am so sorry about dear Red – he is smiling in this last picture and I’m sure that is no accident. What a happy boy, now chasing his ball for all eternity.
Bless you! Anita
you are the sweetest gal I know. Even nature knows it! heart rocks and smiling critters from armadillo to old red. You are loved!
I love this post…I know it will take awhile for your heart to quit aching from Red. It’s been a year today for me, and I haven’t had one day that I don’t miss and still talk to my sweet Joe. Sending heartfelt hugs your way…LOVE the armadillo – would love to see one, up close and personal. Peace to you, my friend! XOXOXO
Hi, Cindy…you may have gotten my message first go-round, and it’s just not showing here…I am SO confused! 🙂 LOVE this post…SO, so sorry about your precious Red. I hope your heartache is easing a little…I lost my dear Joe a year ago, today, and there isn’t a day STILL that I don’t well up thinking of him, and find myself talking to him. We are SO lucky to have the animals in our lives…
LOVE the armadillo – would go crazy to see one in real life. How special he is – hope Tess got a new frisbee! Happy Sunday – XOXO
Cindy I am so sorry to hear that Red is no longer with you. But what a life you gave him!! Filled with love from you could any dog have been happier!?!? I think not! May the love and kindness you gave to him be returned to you ten-fold. You are special and I believe you are loved by all that is good in this world. HE sent you a sign so that you would know. I’m glad you saw them as I have no doubt they were meant for you. Sending you hugs!
