I Wasn't Planning on Blogging Today......

I was looking at some comments on my Spark Page photos of my two little dogs and it hit me - my dogs are wiser than I am.
Sometimes I fall into "pity party" mode and think about how hard the journey is and how long it takes. Looking at these pictures of my sweet little dogs I'm reminded that the journey isn't really about finishing, it's about making the most of the trip and being truly thankful for every tiny, little victory.
My dogs live in and for the moment - enjoying every sniff on a walk; every doggie cookie I give them and celebrating, dancing and twirling, each and every time DH and walk into the house - even if we just left to go out and get the mail! Maybe I can learn something from my pets. Maybe I can learn to savor the moment; to celebrate the morning as a new opportunity from God to get trim and healthier; dance wildly like a ballerina on steroids just because someone I care about walked into the room!
The Lord, has walked with me through the happiest and saddest moments of my life. He walks with me through this effort to be the best I can be too. My dogs are always content and always seem to be at peace with themselves and the world. Sometimes I think they see God and that is why they just simply "trust" - maybe I can take a lesson from them.
