I am fully aware that it is Tuesday but I worked yesterday and then last night was the championship game for college football so that was a focus. Good game played by both sides, unfortunately, someone always has to lose.
So I have not posted on Heaven’s Sunshine SMM in a while because there are no flowers and that us what I love to get close to. As I was heading to work yesterday I saw these tiny paw prints in the snow. They may be canine or possibly feline, regardless too cold to be out lose.
I praying its not the high pitched puppy I periodically hear crying. My ideas of how to care for a pet are totally different than some of my neighbors. My “protectors” are my 4 legged children and not to be left out in the cold.
As we are getting full into winter I pray you all stay warm and healthy, as well as your pets, and remember to always be kind to all kinds.
What an interesting prompt Linda gave us for today, a place where we publish our thoughts with each post to anyone who may read them. So here we go…
In November of 2019, my first book was published. A silly book to some, a funny book to others and a hopeful book to many who loved their dogs who are no longer here. A book of dogs in heaven and the fun they are having playing with friends and waiting on their owner to come to heaven. You know the pictures you have seen of all your dogs waiting for you once you get to heaven…
Yes, they are waiting.
Book 2, the sequel, 1st draft was finished on Saturday, now for the long edit process. Hope to be finished by end of month and book published by spring.
This is what happens when you retire and have nothing to do…you write, or at least I do. So find a fun thing to do and remember in all that you do… be KIND.
Every once in a while a photograph will come a cross the bloggosphere (I am sure that is not a real word, but you know what I mean) that so inspires me that I put pen to paper and write about it. Today’s photo came from stefansphotos.se and since we are now legally in winter I felt it was good time for some winter fun…with words. Thank you Stefan for your beautiful photos. Check out his photographs at the link above.
Deep in the forest where the light seldom shines
Beneath the tall branches of the evergreen pine
There lives such a creature, one hardly ever seen
Here the cold moonlight makes his bright eyes sheen.
The snow reflects the light of the full moon above
Shining through the night like a white mourning dove.
The winter moss is green and soft at forest floor below
As he moves along paths where no one will ever know
What lurks in those dark shadows beyond those next trees
Nothing more than old man winter playing in the night freeze
– Anita Neal-
As you find yourself in the coldness of winter, remember it is easy to warm it up by being kind. Kindness can be like a blanket to wrap you up warm and snug, so let kindness come from you to cover someone like fresh new snow.
It is a possibility to join two blog ideas that have nothing in common but in reality if you turn your words right anything can be a possibility. For instance…
The possibility for modern day construction to be able to replicate the beauty created in older stone work of buildings made in the early 1900 is not really possible or feasible thus making it an impossibility.
Coming home from work today I caught the image of the windows of the 3rd and 4th floors of the county government building and was intrigued by their beauty. I was driving so I apologize for them not being straight, plus it is my phone camera.
This spring I plan to make a blog post on the beauty of the stonework in my area. Some of it is quite beautiful and some of it you look at and go ‘what were you thinking’ thus proving the possibility of most any design regardless of it making sense. Maybe by then I will have a real camera.
May you have a week of great possibilities that make you happy. And if you do or even if you don’t, remember the rest of us struggling with our impossibilities and be utmost kind.
The saying of good intentions paving the road to hell could not be truer in my house. It was my good intentions to get Mimi a companion to give her company on days that I worked. It was my good intentions that I brought in a puppy home so Mimi could have a playmate.
Now I have two guard dogs who think plastic bags flying in the wind
and the mailman are mortal enemies…
Two dogs who think the furniture is for their use and benefit…
And dogs who have toys, real and created, scattered from hither to yon and run thought the house at break neck speed.
I am in hopes that my intentions play out well as settle down and have less crazy and more relaxing and quiet times.
Hoping for good results of all you good intentions through out the new year. And try to be kind. Even if the outcome of a good intentions is not great, if kindness is used, goodness usually always happens.
