A New Year starts off with a blessing!
My husband and I took our 11 year old dog Oscar for a romp at the local golf course this morning. It didn’t matter that the ground was saturated with water. We all needed to absorb the warmth of the sun from the unusually high temperatures. Upon entering the paved golf cart path, we were met by an energetic 10 month old pup named Peanut along with her owner, Corey. Peanut took off like a shot and led Oscar on a roundabout game of “catch me if you can”! You can probably figure out what happened? Oscar quickly tuckered out and simply found a high perch on the lip of the sand trap to have a good view of Peanut circling around and around. It was so delightful to watch the pooches as they were completely in the moment enjoying the push and pull of being together. Meanwhile, Corey, Bill and I continued to walk along together as we dove deep into conversation. This was the first time we met this kind and gentle human being. It felt like three souls coming together to share insights, good conversation and sacred moments. A big shout out to Corey for his presence on our path this morning. Before we embarked on this walk, I was feeling the let down of all the holiday festivities and overall rather blue. Our chance meeting with this lovely man changed all that. We never know who we will meet on our path, who will help us break out of our funk, who will help reignite the light inside. This morning was a blessing indeed.
