It has been a tranquil day.
To go with the flow, I did small tasks to improve my environment. Just little things around the house that had been overlooked, like the kitchen table. It had become our ‘catch all’, but now it is clean.
I also worked on my spot.
This is where I write my Blog. A laptop allows endless choices of where to write are, but sometimes I need to focus, and get it done.
I enjoy sitting in the natural light of the window, but it can be distracting. My neighbor, Mr. Mike is puttering around his backyard. He has a doggo that my doggo loves to hang out with. I remembered this quote, and wanted that for my dog today.
“Live like someone left the gate open.”
I walked outside with my dog, and opened the gate. He raced into Mr. Mike’s backyard straight to his buddy Rosie, and I walked over to Mr. Mike.
He had a disappointment today.
His granddaughter was supposed to come visit, and she canceled on him. I know Mr. Mike lives for her visits, so I tried to encourage him through it. Just saying some kind words, I found myself saying…
I’m not sure he has heard those two words before. He became very still, and quiet. I left him with that, and went back to my spot to continue writing.
I just noticed him opening the gate even wider. Maybe he is thinking of leaving it open for good.
In his thinking, I hope he remembers he does matter. It looks like everyone has found their spot.
