It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax and spend some time with family.
For this post, I have included pictures of just a few of my family members. They are photos I have taken recently while spending time with them. (Note: The photos of my parents didn’t have the greatest quality, so I did a lot of playing around with them and decided to turn them into more of “artwork” type photos. That is why they look as they do.)
My mom and I recently had the most enjoyable time going for a walk by a man-made body of water. We found a swing to sit on and we just kicked back, relaxed, and enjoyed the view while sipping on a Chai Latte from Starbucks (my favorite and I mean FAVORITE drink).
This is a story from 2014, but I have only seen it recently. It’s about a man named Pete and a dog named Buster. Sadly, when Buster was nine years old, Pete ran into financial trouble and lost his house. He knew it wasn’t good for Buster to live out on the streets, so he did what he felt was best for him.
The cat in the photo above is my cousin’s cat, Dakota. She captioned this particular photo “The Mighty Hunter.” This seemed perfect for this unplanned post.
Dakota is watching a bird in a bush but wasn’t putting a lot of effort into trying to go after it. When my cat, Cino, sees a bird her posture immediately changes to what looks like “attack” mode. There is a choice they have to make, attack or sit back and let it go.
Which choice do you make when you encounter a rude person? Do you attack and fight back or do you calmly sit back and let it go? Continue reading →
It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy the beautiful things in life such as a picture of an adorable dog holding a rose in his mouth and a good poem. I happen to have both of these for you today.
The poem is actually not mine. It is from Colin Chappell’s new book of poetry called “Just Thinking.” It’s called “Just a Rose” and in the video below you will hear Colin reading it. I love his accent! Continue reading →
Today I am looking back at an older Tuesday Tale of mine with some new thoughts and questions. If you have been following me for a while you may have read this post called “A Tender Moment Between A Man And His Dog.” It is about a beautiful relationship between a man (John) and his dog (Schoep). As Schoep got older and his arthritis kept him from sleeping, John would bring him to Lake Superior and hold him until he fell asleep in his arms in the water. That is John & Schoep pictured above. The picture alone speaks volumes!
This is such a beautiful story it is worth repeating. Check out the story on the Huffington Post here.
