“A random act of kindness, no matter how small, can make a tremendous impact on someone else’s life.”
― Roy Bennett
Yesterday was a tough day for me.
We were finishing up a few days of dog sitting and I knew our two “guests” would be leaving soon.
Having two extra dogs kept me busy. What that really means is my mind had been completely occupied. As I packed things up for our visitors to head home, I was hit with memories of Duffy and Ruby.
Once again, I was caught off guard.
Even little Abby tried to console me. As I was getting dress she kept coming up and grabbing at my shoe strings–just like Duffy used to do. Her completely perfect and innocent actions created a whole new flood of tears.
God bless her little intuitive soul.
All this meant I had to find something to do.
Of course, my job of choice was and always will be–working in the yard.
After I finished weeding and watering our newest plants, Michael asked me to take a break. As I sat down he handed me his tall insulated glass full of ice water along with a beautiful little bouquet of violas.
In my typical form, I said thank you as I took a few small sips of water, jumped up, and continued on with my work.
Also holding true to my usual form, I pushed this perfect gift to the back of my mind.
Luckily he took this picture.
I found it earlier today in my morning messages.
Ummm, yes, awareness is my word for the year for a very good reason.
I fought the tears and ran outside
From human eye I’d try to hide
But there are Eyes that always see
He ever watches over me
And so He sent a gentle breeze
to kiss my cheek and comfort me.
And look who came to write with me today.
