The morning was the same as
all the other mornings this April,
we sat with our mugs of tea,
the rain was pattering on the window
for the 29th day in a row.
Dougal dog was shaking, the rain makes
him nervous, my love lights a wood
fire to bring warmth and comfort into the lounge
the crackling and spitting logs
make Dougal shake even more.
My girl sits on the other couch, she is shaking too,
they say it could be the medication
or just that she is so anxious.
The lounge is not a pretty sight, I have started
to emulsion paint to get the place ready
for sale, we can't afford to live
here much longer.
I write a list for the shopping and
remind my love to make sure he gets the offers,
to which he responds,
"I'll get what I get",
"I'll get what I get",
to which I,
After they have gone I'm sat stunned and silent,
not at all in the mood for painting
a book rests on the arm of the couch...
this last couple of days,
after our breakfast
I have been picking it up and
reading passages out loud from it,
reading from where the page happens to fall open,
in an effort to give my girl
some positive messages of hope for the future.
Funnily enough just opening the page randomly
seems to always impart some wise words,
something needed at that time.
So today sitting all alone and feeling the fume over a
tense outbreak, I turned and noticed the book,
I picked it up, opened randomly again,
and began to read...
"the most enlightened beings throughout history,
told us to love others, ....... give negativity to others,
you will receive negativity back"-
I realised at that point
I was giving out tense, anxious and insecure vibes to
my love, which in-turn bounced right back at me!
I have a personal mantra -
'What I need will be given to me in the 'Moment'
I have been trying to maintain this attitude under severe stress,
and it has really helped me, whenever I feel a need
there seems to always be little messages
popping up, could be an uplifting comment,
some inspiring post or video, an email
from a blogging friend or
Linking with Recuerda mi Corazon
You are not going to believe this, I have just gone to my email
LOOK at what a friend sent me at the same time
I was writing this post,
yes even the faith pic had been posted!!!
A Dog named Faith
A dog born with only two legs,
his owner was going to have him put down,
but instead felt pity and trained him to walk upright like a human!
The message ends this way ~
"In life there are always undesirable things,
so in order to feel better you just need to look at life from another direction.
Faith is the continual demonstration of the strength and wonder of life."
