On days, like today, when I am at the ‘almost very end’ and the night sky begins to gain its slightest of chills…
And right around that time, when my little pup climbs into my lap, to find his ‘most perfectly cozy’ resting spot…
I close my eyes, and find my breath and thank the stars for all these most wonderful things.
I think of all of those I love and whose love lights my path.
I think of all the moments I have shared and those that I hope are yet still to come.
But most of all, I am so ever-grateful, to be right here, right now.
And when it is, that I take this pause and think over these wonders of my day.
I realize that all of this magic, this loving-kindness has been, right here, all along.
So when it is that you may find yourself really struggling to find these wonders in your view…
