I am grateful for a day at home yesterday, closeness of the dogs, mending fences with my SO, and those who called to check on me or email me after Tuesday night's drama. I'm back at work today, feeling renewed and inspired to go for a run at noon. It seems that when my head slips back into replaying the old tapes or I accept someone else's pain, then my energy just goes way down. But today is another day and it's filled with a lot of promise.
I do have great concern about one of my older dogs who hasn't been feeling well. She is at the vet's today to be checked out with more tests. I love my dogs. This old girl has been so special for so many reasons. She is now grizzled with grey on her head, paws, and behind. She is depressed from not feeling well, yet she still manages to wag her tail and look at me with adoration. I would like for her to be in your thoughts today.
I know that there is a plan for everything. There are those who will be around when the sun goes down and there are those who won't. I think about the loss of life this week and know that for some reason a disturbed person took away a lot of plans, hopes and dreams. As I heard Sister Maurice say, "All will be revealed in time." I know that there is a plan for me or I wouldn't be where I am today, feeling better about myself and looking at all the day has to offer. I am out of the darkness and looking towards the light today.
