".. from my ragged heart to yours"

I read this quote on a picture which stated
lessons I learned from my dog.
Live Simply ~ Love Everyone


I may not have a dog
(But if I could
have a dog
is the kind
I would choose)

I think this quote
really says it all.
A valuable lesson
in our journey and study of life
in working with
difficult to love
people and hard situations.
Most of the difficulty
is centered around
that somehow
more important
than them,
the situation.
When I change my view
and begin to think less of me,
then I find
that it is much
easier to live with them
and the situation.
My friends
sometimes call this
choosing your battles wisely,
I call it...
May you find happiness
in whatever situatio you find yourself in today!
blessings Aways,
Unless stated otherwise, the vintage photos found on my blog are from my own
personal and private collection and may be used in your art work.

Nice thought. I often think my dog must be the most forgiving creature on the earth. She is treated so unfairly (compared to the rest of the family who get to sit at the table and get their own food) and yet she always is hopeful and loving.

Miss KT - you are the coolest lady ever!! I've been peeking at your school blog (the kids look like fun) wish I was in your class. Quinton is repeating 1st grade this year.... and it's working out GREAT! He's really gained a lot of maturity and will "hopefully" be able to maintain better focus (with the help of his vision therapy) So, fingers crossed, he'll be mainstreamed (regular ed) by the end of this year..... that would be amazing! He's some kind of kiddo! wish we could all meet someday - but for now.... I'll be saving pennies for Silver Bella 2010 (if I can get in?) I'll be looking fwd to a full report from Linda and you. Sounds like a real blast!!! big hugs and kisses - Anna
