Lessons From Dog

When life seems too heavy,
Go out and play:
Run, jump and roll,
Bark, howl and bay!
Lie on your back
With your tummmy in the air;
chew a good bone,
Let go of that care!

When you get sleepy,
Have a long nap.
Then chase a fun ball
Or snuffle the cat.
Eat all you want
And take a long drink.
Give yourself time
to know what you think.

When you feel great,
Waggle your tail.
With attitude like this,
You know you’ll never fail!
Lick those you love
With greatest of joy.
Take a nice walk,
Play with a toy.

Whatever is passed,
Just let it go,
Like fading of day
Or melting of snow.
Old things don’t matter
When you live for the day.
Keep looking forward;
Life’s better that way.

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
