What to do when your day starts with a “bang” (unpleasant one) and then more or less continues on in similar fashion. During the 10 a.m service today, (Day of Peace) I found myself crying thinking of what happened early before I got to the church.
The dog got his tail chopped off by a closing door. My precious baby.. yelped, then I saw the piece of tail on the floor and the trail of blood as he escaped into the house. Such misery, such helplessness.. I could only react. Meanwhile his sister who is white, was now looking like a red dalmatian and blood was everywhere, on me and on the carpets. Didn’t matter all I wanted to do was pick him up and hold him to me… of course that did wonders for my outfit. When I finally got to church, I realized that I still had blood on me, and my clothes. What a sight.
Fortunately the vet made a house call. I was so relieved. We are all resting comfortably, the human will be taking to her bed very early. Oh dear, just remembered have to check on the laundry. Used cold water. back.. looks like all the stains came out. ahh sigh.
PL Calendar, day 2 Be Forever young and seek new challenges
The world is constantly in motion and never rests. Keep your senses sharp and be ready to adapt to the ever-changing world.
During all of today’s “activities”, I picked up the memory candle from the Funeral home, isn’t it pretty, there is a small compartment that is sealed under it. During the service, the candle is lit. I had never seen these before. I am comforted that it is home with me now.
Life is what it is. I need to slow down, and let my journey set the pace for peaceful healing.
