I have a little corner of the internet all to myself! I'm excited. I want to use this spot to acknowledge the grace that is in the ordinary. Sometimes it may just be a photo. Sometimes a crystallized moment.
Today's is about Buddy...which is of course, cosmically correct. This morning I was hours late for his regular old walk. I was feeling guilty and lame. I was hesitant to even look at him since I thought he might have that...Hey-you-lame-human-have-you-noticed-yet-you-owe-me-a-walk look. But, he didn't. Instead, he hung out by me as I was getting ready. Just for the sheer joy of hanging around with me. Yep. I'm that good. He rolled around on his back on the floor as I made my bed, twisting and fully enjoying the chance to play by himself on his back in a big open space. It was at that moment that I paused and realized for the millionth time that maybe we can learn profound truths from dogs. They sure know how to live: greeting every single person with warmth and wild abandon, napping frequently and always ready for a walk around the block with a friend. More than anything, they live in the moment. Right now is exactly right. Today's grace: You really are enough, perfectly enough. Buddy's shown me so and I believe him.
