And then there was light. Those are someone else’s words, but I felt them run through me, a cleansing. I watched in awe, as power consumed nature. In my time – is all I heard. Then the storm moved in and surrounded me, created a blindness towards my search for understanding, quite literally! Washed in […]

Mirror #writephoto

Looking within 
is never 
easy 

We lie to 
ourselves 
all the time  

What do I see 
when my inner self 
is reflected back?  

The mirror 
not always kind 
showed the darkness 
within  

The Spirit 
pulls back that shroud  

Extending a hand 
to lift me 
cradle me 
love me  

Serenity 
calms the pools 
of reflection

The Window of
Promise
cleansed

Rocket-Hot and Cold

Rocket has been begging me to let him do another blog post.  With him, it’s all about “me, me, me”! Since he types SO slow, and proofing is a nightmare, I compromised and told him that I would write a blog post about him.  This pleased his majesty. 🙂

As you can see, Rocket is ready for football season and for the cooler weather!  On average, the Texas DFW area has 18 days of 100+ degree days.  We’ve had 12, I think, so far this year.

BUT, starting today it’s gonna be “cooler”!  Hooray!  How much cooler, you ask?  Why today it’s only going to be 98 degrees!  Whew!  What a relief!  The next several days will be “cooler” too.  97, 95, 99.  ….yippee.   The Heat index has been around 106, 108 lately, so this really IS better, believe it or not.

Although Rocket’s ancestors are from Chihuahua, Mexico, this little boy likes his Air Conditioning.  🙂

But my little Rocketman also loves the sun!  He has tried for years to even out his tan, but he never seems to get it right.  Because his coloring is mostly black, he gets Very hot.  There are times when I have to make him get out of the sun before he cooks his brain!

In the winter, I am constantly covering Rocket up because he’s cold.  I make sure I always have a blanket or his favorite sweater available. I keep a blanket in the car, I pack a sweater in my bag before going to work, etc.

He will also take over my favorite fluffy robe when I let him.

Even in the summertime, if the A/C is set too cold for Rocket’s liking, he wants a blanket.  I always have a blanket on the couch for him.  So don’t sit on that pile of blankets without seeing if my furbaby might be under it!!

I want you to know that Rocket is NOT spoiled. He is simply well-loved.  ❤

What extra concessions do you make for your pet?  Do you consider your pet spoiled?

This Heart’s Key

Past’s
fears
released

Tomorrow’s vision
seen plainly

in your 
eyes

Open palm
reveals 

the key

This Heart's 
Key

Given
joyfully

Making A Difference

If you ever feel small, or unimportant.  If you ever feel that your place in this world doesn’t matter.  It Does Matter.  You Matter.   You touch more lives than you realize.  Your small acts of kindness or compassion, the few moments you take to extend a hand or your heart, can change a person’s life for the better.  YOU, make a difference.
